Washington, May 3 (ANI): An online survey conducted on a random sample of 1,085 mothers, aged 18+ has revealed that given a choice, more mommies would today prefer a ‘makeover’ than ever before.

A survey by American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) shows that if cost were not an issue, 62 pc of mothers would consider a “mommy makeover” that includes a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and/or breast lift.

According to ASPS statistics, the number of women getting “mommy makeover” procedures is on the rise.

Nearly 112,000 tummy tucks were reported in 2010, up 85 pc since 2000, 90,000 breast lifts, up 70 pc and 296,000 breast augmentations, up 39 pc.

“In the last decade we’ve seen women’s attitudes about cosmetic surgery change. Today women are not afraid to admit that they love their children, but they wish their bodies looked the way they did before their first pregnancies,” said Phillip Haeck, ASPS President.

“And they’re not afraid to acknowledge that they may need a little help beyond a healthy diet and exercise,” he added.

ASPS member surgeons are also noticing that more younger mothers are now coming for “mommy makeover” than a decade ago.

“In the past we saw a lot of women in their 50s getting these types of procedures. But today we are seeing young mothers in their 30s coming in for procedures such as tummy tucks and breast lifts,” Haeck revealed.

“The techniques and the technologies are to the point where we can do these procedures in an outpatient setting in a very safe and effective fashion, minimizing the amount of downtime and pain. This appeals to our patients,” said Dr. Rosen, ASPS Member Surgeon in Montclair, New Jersey. (ANI)
