Rise in popularity of the ‘mummy makeover’
More and more women are choosing to undergo a series of cosmetic surgery procedures after giving birth, according to online newspaper American Health and Beauty. The newspaper describes how for some new mothers, a healthy diet and plenty of regular exercise is just not enough to get the body back to the shape and condition it was in before pregnancy. The term ‘mummy makeover’ refers to a combination of surgical procedures which includes breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, and vaginoplasty (also colloquially known as designer vagina). Each procedure targets common body shape issues that women face post-pregnancy, including loose folds of skin and excess pockets of fat around the abdominal area, and breasts that have lost their volume, shape, and lift due to breastfeeding. Combining these procedures can end up saving the patient money and ensures that overall recovery time is as short as possible.
