  • Mothers warned against copying celebs' post-baby plastic surgery

    Svelte celebrities who go under the knife to lose their baby fat are encouraging normal mothers to follow their lead.

    The trend for celebs to get back in public with a new, slim waistline has had a knock on effect on new mothers, according to doctors.

    Rapid weight loss has become every new mother’s aim, with common cosmetic surgery requests including a breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction package, dubbed the ‘mummy job’.

    Stars including Liz Hurley, Victoria Beckham and Myleene Klass have all seemingly snapped back into shape after giving birth and mothers who cannot follow their lead resort to plastic surgery, when sensible diet and exercise doesn’t produce results quick enough.

    In America the worrying trend has hit new heights as mothers who want to regain their figures instantly can order a caesarean and tummy-tuck simultaneously.

    Mark Bury, chief executive of cosmetic surgery chain Surgicare, said: ‘There is endless pressure for 30-year-olds to be 20-year-olds and for 40-yearolds to be 30-year-olds.

    ‘Yummy mummies should try to resist pressure from celebrity mums who unnaturally return to their normal appearance in a dangerously short time. New mothers should embrace motherhood and all that comes with it.’
