Here's an idea for a Christmas gift that is actually very popular during the holidays, when it is often a little slower at work and easier to take some time off, a mommy make-over.
It uses a combination of surgeries to help re-shape a new mom into her old self or even better. Dr. Rob Schmid, a plastic surgeon, says you might be surprised at the downtime, when you consider how much could be included in a mommy make-over.
"The most common mommy make-over would be a breast augmentation and a tummy tuck. The down time now really we tell people is about a week and a half. It can be as little as a few days-as long as a couple of weeks," says Dr. Schmid.
He also says the cost for a mommy make-over is between $5 and $15,000, depending on how much needs to be done.
