Should I have plastic surgery?
Aahh, the joys of becoming a new mom! That perfect little baby that you can stare at for hours, the unconditional love, the excitement and oh yes, the body that just doesn’t seem to be what it used to.
During pregnancy, your body goes though so many changes, some chemical some physical. Through time, we work out and wait anxiously for it’s not so quick return. Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, it just won’t or can’t go back due to pregnancy complications. So when, if ever, is it OK to have plastic surgery to fix our imperfections?
Cindy is a mom of two beautiful girls ages 8 and 6. Being a former dancer, she always prided herself on her flat stomach even after baby #1. But during her second pregnancy something different happened. She noticed a white line going down her expanding belly. As it turned out, Cindy developed Diastasis Recti. A condition that separates the abdominal muscles. After giving birth to her second child, Cindy said she constantly looked three months pregnant and no matter what she did for exercise nothing helped. After five years of contemplating having more kids and dealing with the everyday disappointment in her stomach, she finally decided that surgery was absolutely what she wanted to do. After researching several surgeons, she chose and trusted Dr. Brenner of Beverly Hills to give her back the confidence in her body she once had.
