What is Revenge Plastic Surgery (Mommy Makeover)?
Quite simply, Revenge Plastic Surgery is surgery that people undergo in order to exact revenge on an estranged spouse. Although I do not condone such reasons for undergoing Mommy Makeover surgery, it is an increasingly popular trend across the country.
Most of the patients that I see for Mommy Makeover surgery are young moms who miss having the sexy figure that they had prior to having children. The majority of these patients have tried, albeit unsuccessfully, every other non-surgical means of “abdominal rejuvenation,” and failed. This commonly includes topical treatments such as creams, and laser treatments for stretch marks on the abdomen and thighs. Frequently, young moms are quite fit physically and exercise frequently. However, even the best private trainers may not be able to help women lose extra, sagging skin. Further, severe cases of Diastasis Rectus (separation of the abdominal muscles) may actually get worse with excessive abdominal core training. These types of patients require surgical abdominal rejuvenation.
When I consult with female patients for Mommy Makeover surgery, my primary focus is to design an operation that specifically addresses the patient’s concerns. Part of my discussion with patients also revolves around their desires and motives for moving forward with the operation. For women who are new moms, they frequently bring their spouses to our surgical consultation. However, with new statistics placing the national divorce rate upwards of 50%, there is a growing number of new divorcees who are presenting for surgery. This has given rise to new terminology: Revenge Surgery. There is growing sentiment in Los Angeles, that recently divorced new moms are increasingly having plastic surgery procedures as a means of revenge against their estranged spouses. However, in my Mommy Makeover practice, patients’ motivations usually revolve around a desire to restore self confidence. Restoration of self confidence is an excellent reason to seek out many types of plastic surgery procedures, including tummy tucks (Abdominoplasty), breast augmentation and breast lifting.
