The New Mommy Makeover: Experts Reveal What’s New in the World of Postpartum Plastic Surgery.
Women have been turning to surgery for years to reclaim their body confidence—but new technologies and treatments are making it easier and faster than ever before to look (and feel) your best post-pregnancy. “I hate the term mommy makeover. It’s reconstructive,” says Melissa Doft, clinical assistant professor of surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College. “Women want to look restored and just get things back to where they were. They want to feel confident.”
