If you’ve ever thought about getting Botox, you’re not alone. In a recent survey of New Jersey Family readers, 58 percent said they’re very interested in having a cosmetic procedure—proof that mommy makeovers aren’t just for new mothers. A whopping 75 percent said they want to have a cosmetic procedure to feel better about themselves and 35 percent said they’ve already had some sort of cosmetic procedure.
Botox and fillers are among the procedures readers were most interested in as part of a mommy makeover. The others include: tummy tuck/liposuction, skin rejuvenation, laser hair removal, Coolsculpting and teeth whitening.
