Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow has commented that she's considering plastic surgery due to the damage her two childbirths have caused. The Sun claims Paltrow has told pals, "My stomach is rippling, my breast don't feel good. I've been trying to work it out. I want to do something about it....It is such a lot of hard work. And I've been breastfeeding, which has been causing me so much problems. My breasts feel so sore."

A large percentage of the women who have plastic surgery have it done to correct changes caused by having children. Pregnancy itself can result in loose skin and muscle of the tummy, which can be corrected by a tummy tuck. Breast feeding can cause the breasts to decrease in size and sag. This can be corrected by a breast lift, with or without implants. Unfortunately, none of these surgeries is scarless, although if done properly the scars can be well-hidden.

Celebrities, even the most glamorous of them, are normal people just like everyone else. I recommend my patients to wait at least 6 months after breastfeeding to have breast surgery, and 6 months after childbirth for a tummy tuck.

Oh gosh, maybe I'm reading between the lines here, Dr. Tony, but I'm pretty sure that you just offered to give me a complimentary tummy tuck. How kind of you. When can you fit me in? lol. I mean, my sagging stomach isn't lol, but...yeah.

If Gwyneth has another baby, will the old problems return?

Hollowsquirrel, I've seen some photos on your blog and you look pretty darn good to me. You don't look any different than the last time I saw you...12 years ago???? Or maybe it was at the reunion...
Jude- I tell all my patients to wait until they've decided to have no more children before having a tummy tuck or breast lift. Although it's unpredictable, the pregnancy will likely alter their results considerably.


Gwyneth is average looking and can't handle it. Whatta ya gonna do?
