According to surgery.com, 144,929 women had a tummy tuck to help hide their unsightly post-partum belly pooches making it the 4th most performed cosmetic surgery in 2010. These numbers are up significantly over the last 10 years where previously this sort of surgery was only available for affluent and wealthy patients. Now it appears that women under 35 with 1 or more children seem to be the main cause for the rise in surgeries performed. It doesn’t look like this trend will be slowing down any time soon.
The tummy tuck in Ventura is not a quick fix for the traditional post-pregnancy belly pouch and you should really consult an expert on whether or not you are an ideal candidate for the surgery. It’s important that you work with a board-certified plastic surgeon whenever you are looking to have plastic surgery performed on your body.
