    A growing number of women are undergoing mommy makeovers -- plastic surgery procedures that restore their post-pregnancy bodies.

    Mommy Makeover: A Plastic Surgery Trend

    So far, neither Brock nor Malone is complaining about their results -- or doing anything to jeopardize them.

    "Oh, my gosh!" Brock says. "My self-esteem is amazing! I can look in the mirror again without cringing."

    Malone says the experience has given her a renewed sense of self.

    "I just love being a girl and a woman again," she gushes. "I'm feeling more and more like an individual. My old personality is creeping back."

    Casas reminds those who have had mommy makeovers that nothing is permanent. In addition to the inevitable aging process, some procedures need ongoing surgeries.

    "Breast implants, like all medical devices, require maintenance," she says.

    Which is precisely why women like Probasco insist it's far better to forgo postpartum plastic surgery entirely than begin the never-ending fight against time.

    "Everybody ages," she says. "Hopefully, at some point, our society will honor those changes instead of stigmatizing them."
