More and more moms are turning to plastic surgeons to zap stretch marks, loose belly skin and other postpartum “battle scars”. Would you undergo surgery to regain your prebaby body?

Or if you're not a mom, would you undergo an extreme makeover to regain or have the body you pine for especially if exercise and diet haven't totally worked for you?

No one's going to judge one way or another. It would be interesting to find out what you each think!

I'm not a mother, and if that should ever happen I don't know how my body will change and how I'll react.

Would I say a definitive no? No. Can I imagine myself going through an extreme makeover? Not really. I've seen how difficult and painful recovery from surgeries can be. Going through an elective surgery for non-emergency reasons (and having to go through the pain of recovery) is not something I'd want to do. On the other hand, if the way I looked influenced my self-confidence and self-esteem and an extreme makeover is a solution, then why not.
