Despite a slowly recovering economy, plastic surgery is on the rise. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, several procedures have grown in popularity over the past few years and a large segment of plastic surgery patients are mothers. In 2011 alone there were 325,000 "mommy makeovers," a variety of procedures that are meant to restore women to their pre-baby bodies. This usually includes breast augmentations and liposuction, but can include several other procedures as well. The survey also revealed that if cost were not an issue, 62% of women would elect to have mommy makeovers.
Of the procedures requested by women, breast augmentation remains the most popular. There was an increase in augmentations in 2011 performed by surgeons across America. Many of these patients say that breast surgery help them to not only regain their former bodies, but to help regain confidence about their bodies after the grueling months spent being pregnant. Surgeons say that patients often elect to have the surgeries done before the warmer months in order to wear "revealing clothing" as well as bathing suits.
