Is the 'Mom Job' Really Necessary?

"Dr. David A. Stoker, a plastic surgeon in Marina Del Rey, Calif., has a surgical cure for the ravages of motherhood. He, like many plastic surgeons nationwide, calls it a 'Mommy Makeover.'"

"'Twenty years ago, a woman did not think she could do something about it and she covered up with discreet clothing,' Dr. Stoker said. 'But now women don't have to go on feeling self-conscious or resentful about their appearance.'"

This New York Times article on the Mommy Makeover addresses reasons for the surging popularity of these combination procedures. This article highlights Dr. Stoker's experience as well as the story of one of his happy patients. It also discusses how the Mommy Makeover is challenging traditional views of women simply accepting physical changes related to aging and pregnancy.
