Actress Megan Fox has become the most recent celebrity to appear in public, weeks after giving birth, sporting a trim size 8 figure. The Transformers actress looked stunning in a simple, blue dress that highlighted her pancake flat stomach and enviable curves, as she stepped out on The Tonight Show on US television last week.
Fox joins a long list of celebrity mothers, including Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Garner, Angelina Jolie and Jessica Alba, all of whom have magically bounced back in to their pre-pregnancy jeans seemingly with minimal effort, not long after giving birth.
For those new mothers who don’t live the celebrity lifestyle and don’t have the luxury of time, in-house chefs and personal trainers, it can take a little longer to get back into shape.
Over the past few years, a growing trend in America for ‘LA ladies who lunch’, with images to maintain, has been the ‘mummy tuck’. The ‘mummy tuck’ has been described as a ‘triple operation overhaul’, a triple procedure that includes a breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction, which is often sold at a discount price under the label of ‘mummy tuck’ at certain LA clinics.
According to The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), mothers are the quickest growing group seeking surgery. The Daily Mail reports that a survey of 2,000 British new mothers revealed that one in four were considering cosmetic surgery; with three-quarters admitting they were shocked by the effect pregnancy had had on their bodies.
Pregnancy can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of breasts. During pregnancy, breasts prepare for nursing by becoming larger. Several days after the birth, breasts will become heavier and fuller as they adjust to carrying milk, and two weeks later will return to their pregnancy size. Once the mother has returned to her pre-pregnancy weight, her breasts will also return to their pre-pregnancy size, however they are likely to be less ‘perky’. Sagging breasts are a common concern for pregnant women.
The fat transfer procedure involves the removal of fat from other areas of your body, such as your legs or abdomen, and transferring it into the breast area. The treatment is minimally invasive meaning there is no hospital stay and no need for general anesthetic, making the recovery far quicker than traditional breast implant surgery.
We are the UK’s leading authority in minimally invasive fat removal procedures, and have some of the most experienced doctors in the industry working with us. We were the first in Europe to use the PureGraft™ system for fat transfer and we have performed more breast reshaping procedures than any other UK clinic.
