Dr. Michael Salzhauer, who is a plastic surgeon, has written an illustrated book for children to help them understand why their mother looks different. In 2007, 348,000 women had plastic surgery in the USA for various kinds of procedures including breast augmentation, face lifts and tummy tucks. "My Beautiful Mommy" is set for release on Mother's Day.
Implications - Dr. Michael Salzhauer features himself in the children's book depicted as a kind of superhero that people can come to for advice. The book explains how mothers have to have bandages at first, but eventually get to take them off to reveal their beautiful bodies. Needless to say, this book will stir up a lot of controversy.
