It’s not only us ‘normal’ women that feel self-conscious about our thunder-thighs and daydream about the plastic surgery we want to have done. 33-year-old Zoe Saldana, star of hit blockbuster Avatar, spoke about her plans for cosmetic treatment on The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, a US chat show.
On the subject of whether or not she’d treat herself to plastic surgery after having kids, Zoe said “I would. The same way an old man who is having a midlife crisis can buy a Porsche and dates a 17-year-old, I can buy a pair [of new boobs] and be the sexiest soccer mom you’ve ever seen.”
And why not? Good for Zoe – we like to see a woman showing this kind of confidence and comfort in her own choices. “I am okay with people trying to do whatever it is they need to do to feel better”. So are we, Zoe!
Mummy makeovers are all the rage these days, both in Hollywood and out of it. Only last week, it was rumoured that Beyoncé might have undergone a couple of tucks to get herself back into perfect shape so soon after the birth of her baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter.
Angela Chouaib, MD and founder of Secret Surgery Ltd., says “It’s so great to see that so many women are putting in the effort to stay sexy after childbirth. Having kids doesn’t have to be the end of your sex life – far from it! What’s important is being happy with what you’ve got, whether you undertake surgery to get there or not.”
If you’ve lost a lot of weight recently, you might sometimes notice that your tummy’s looking less like the toned, beach body you imagined it might be and a bit more like somebody left a wax model out in the sun too long.
This ‘melty’ excess skin is nothing to worry about; it’s only natural that after extreme weight loss you’ve got a lot of skin left over, but unfortunately you can do all the ab crunches and sit-ups you like – you won’t dodge that podge. It’s simply excess skin, and the only way to get rid of it is to, well, get rid of it!
Tummy tucks are all the rage at the moment, with yummy mummies looking to get back their shape after nine months of ballooning, or simply successful dieters who need a couple of extra tweaks before they’re ready to show off their brand new beach bodies.
Secret Surgery’s MD and founder, Angela Chouaib, recommends a tummy tuck for anyone who has recently lost a lot of weight. “Tummy tucks are simple, routine procedures that simply remove excess tissue that gets left behind when we drop pounds quickly. It’s super-quick to recover from, and when you see the results, it’ll make those months of dieting seem even more worth it.”

Becoming a mother can be the most fulfilling experience of a woman’s life. However, taking pleasure in your new role as a Mum doesn’t mean that you must sacrifice your own sense of worth and well-being. We all know that after giving birth the skin around the abdomen can become loose and stretched.
Most women experience weight gain during the pregnancy, and with a newborn it is mighty difficult to get yourself up and out to the gym to get rid of it. Furthermore, breastfeeding can change the shape and firmness of your once-perfect breasts. All of these factors, combined with hormonal changes and fatigue, can greatly damage a woman’s self-esteem. In most cases, simply getting back to their old, pre-pregnancy bodies would be a huge boost.
This has led to some mothers undergoing cosmetic treatments having exhausted natural methods of weight-loss and the standard old wives’ tricks for smooth, flawless skin post-pregnancy. The cocktail of treatments has been referred to as the “Mommy makeover” in cosmetic surgery circles in Miami, and elsewhere in the US.
Most common treatments opted for are liposuction, breast lift (and/or reduction) surgery, and tummy tucks to get rid of that irksome and unbecoming flap of skin that never seems to snap back into place. Interestingly, the Mommy makeover also includes some vaginal cosmetic surgery in cases where the shape of the vagina post-pregnancy is not conducive to sexual gratification.
The designer vagina procedure tones vaginal muscles, resulting in greater strength, contraction and control. It is a standard gynaecological surgical procedure. The stretched muscle at the back of the vagina is joined together and shortened with dissolvable stitches, and the unwanted skin is removed.
All aspects of the Mommy makeover – from tummy tuck to vaginal toning – is available from our expert surgeons here at Secret Surgery. You too can get back to your best.
