With magazine headlines splashing hot mommas all over their covers, real life moms are turning to the knife for post-baby body renewals. LocateADoc.com is beginning to see this growing trend in plastic surgery make headlines. Shannon Cook, a CNN reporter who has interviewed Britney Spears and Mariah Carey, recently wrote an article for CNN Living titled, "Celebs and Civilians Alike Expected to 'Bounce Back' After Baby."
But what is driving this post-partum makeover surge? In today's society, more women are staying active after their pregnancies. From returning to the workplace or keeping up on social engagements, new moms are perusing busier schedules than mothers of the past. And just like the active celebrity mothers that adorn magazine covers, average women want to look and feel great for their busy post-pregnancy lives.
With a quicker recovery time, more mothers -- celebrity and average moms included -- are considering plastic surgery an option. From tummy tucks and liposuction to breast lifts and vaginal rejuvenation procedures, new mothers are striving to get their bodies back in shape as quickly as possible. Many doctors are even giving validity to post-delivery procedures. In reference to breast lifts, PlasticSurgeons.com reports that "there are many different exercises, creams, and more that claim to return the breasts of new mothers to their previous state but few of these methods work."
As technology progresses, women are recovering and revamping from pregnancy and labor quicker than ever. "Plastic surgery not only speeds up the body rejuvenation process," said LocateADoc.com rep Jennifer Collier, "but it's also giving them body improvement options previous generations did not have." Breast lift procedures are particularly popular because they fill in where diet and exercise fail.
Still, with the media criticizing Jessica Simpson for gaining too much weight during pregnancy and other celebrities for not losing the baby weight right away, is Hollywood pressuring everyday moms to fight the pregnancy effects too quickly? Possibly not.
Though these Hollywood standards are seemingly unattainable, many women are choosing cosmetic surgery for their own benefit. "Looking good helps new moms feel good," added Collier, "and feeling good makes for a happy and active new mother."
