Post pregnancy fitness has always been a big issue, but there's also been a rise in post pregnancy surgery. In fact, many plastic surgeons are even branding their practice around 'Mommy Makeovers.' Defined, a Mommy Makeover could include breast reduction or shaping, body sculpting and - most commonly - a tummy tuck.

Implications - We live in a society that reveres beauty, and many woman find it hard to live up to societal expectations -- especially after having given birth. With more innovations that allow mothers to feel better about themselves, women of all ages and sizes may begin to feel that "makeovers" are an acceptable way to beautify themselves, rather than it being something to be ashamed about.
