Instead of a lush bouquet of flowers, coupons to mow the lawn, or yet another greeting card, why not get your mother what she really wants for Mother's Day?
What is it?
A tummy tuck and fake tits, apparently.
According to a recent survey of more than 1,000 moms, conducted by none other than the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 62 percent said they would consider a “mommy makeover” if cost were not an issue.
The Society also released its own stats stating that women had nearly 112,000 tummy tucks in 2010, an 85 percent increase since 2000, and had 296,000 breast augmentations, up 39 percent from 2000.
“Today women are not afraid to admit that that they love their children, but they wish their bodies looked the way they did before their first pregnancies,” said the Society's president, Dr. Phillip Haeck. “And they're not afraid to acknowledge that they may need a little help beyond a healthy diet and exercise.”
With Mother's Day only several days away, it's may be a little late to get Mom under the knife and give her that new rack she's always wanted, but hey, there's always Halloween.
