  • Mother of many, Angelina Jolie recently gave birth to twins, sparking rumors that the notoriously thin actress had some plastic surgery, particularly a tummy tuck, to get rid of any excess baggage in the tummy department. Fans can look forward to seeing the new mom in Clint Eastwood’s film Changeling, due out next week.

    33-year old Angelina has 3 adopted children and 3 biological children with her partner, Brad Pitt. Along with a love of philanthropy, the couple shares a history of plastic surgery (See Make Me Heal’s story on Angelina Jolie’s plastic surgery and Brad Pitt’s possible plastic surgery), although it doesn’t seem that Angelina turned to the scalpel after her most recent delivery.

    After giving birth to twins in July, the latest additions to the Jolie-Pitt brood, Star Magazine reported earlier this month that there was rumors about Angelina having a tummy tuck, as she was worried about her appearance. Fans of the Jolie-Pitt clan may recall that Angelina’s weight was a tabloid focus for the duration of her pregnancy, amid rumors that the actress wasn’t eating as she was so upset about the situation in Africa and the death of her mother.

    The magazine reported, “Sources tell Star that the 33-year-old actress fretted over the size of her stomach while she was pregnant with Knox and Vivienne. ‘She doesn’t like to talk about it or admit it, but Angie told some friends that she had a ‘mommy tuck,’ ” says a family insider. ‘She likes the way that sounds better than tummy tuck.’”

    As Angelina was very thin both before and during her pregnancy, it is unlikely that she would have a total mommy makeover, which involves a breast lift, breast augmentation or breast reduction, tummy tuck and liposuction. (See Make Me Heal’s anatomy of a mommy makeover).

    As for just having a tummy tuck, which is also unlikely as recovery takes weeks and the family was famously photographed shortly after Jolie gave birth. On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn also disputes the rumors, saying, “Do I think she’s had a tummy tuck? I doubt it, but that’s just my hunch. It takes a couple weeks to recover from the surgery, and I would think that the paparazzi would obtain actual proof that she had work done.”

    As the paparazzi were present at the French hospital where Angelina gave birth and at chateau where the family stayed before and after, it does seem like they would have captured shots of a visit to a plastic surgeon.

    Angelina looked great at a recent red carpet premier for her movie, Changeling. Angelina and Brad have both said that they aren’t done adding to their collection of children, so look out for more plastic surgery rumors for the couple as they age and parenthood takes it toll.

      Of course she had a tummy tuck! Have you ever looked closely at the stomach of a woman who gave birth to a child the same year? Let alone one who gave birth to twins, stretching the abdominal muscles even further? —-Here is the reality: pregnancy stretches the rectus abdominus, which is a paired muscle that runs vertically from the pubic to torso region. These muscles are separated by a connective tissue (linea alba) that is stretched (sometimes split) in pregnancy. It does not return to former size, and therefore, the paired abdominal muscles are never pulled tight again. That is why all mothers have a protruding belly that won’t disappear, no matter how many crunches are piled on top the aerobic workouts! —-TUMMY TUCK, or abdominoplasty, pulls the two paired rectus abdominus muscles back together. It also removes the sagging stretched skin, pulling down skin from the torso to create a new, smooth tummy (with new doctor made belly button to replace the post-pregnancy stretched belly button). —-After birthing twins, there is absolutely NO WAY Angelina could have worn that skin tight dress UNLESS she had the abdominoplasty! Her abdominals were absolutely, totally flat … and that is humanly impossible for someone who just delivered a few months back! —-BUT GOOD FOR HER FOR DOING WHAT WAS NECESSARY TO GET HER BODY BACK! It is a shame that so many women are forced to go through life feeling lousy about themselves due to the changed body of motherhood. Tummy tucks should be part of the birthing process. GYN doctors should be trained in the plastic surgeon methods of tightening the muscles and closing the wound. Mothers should be returned to their former physical self. —- After having two children, I returned to my exercise routine of running 5 miles a day, along with weights, pillates, crunches, etc. After ten years, I realized the ‘mommy tummy’ was never going to respond to exercise. I saved for three years money to afford the tummy tuck. WOW was I happy! I had my flat tummy back again and immediately felt like myself again! —- It is terrible that people hide this operation, equating it to vanity. It’s not. Correcting the abdominal muscles not only affects a woman’s sense of identity, but also her self-esteem, and her physical health. Sagging stretched abdominal muscles puts heavy strain on the back muscles, while also leaving little support for the interior organs. Woman should talk openly about it, letting other women know that this is an outcome of pregnancy. The majority of women DON’T know. They become frustrated and eventually give up on trying to look like their former selves. If they KNEW, if they were allowed the corrective surgery as part of the birthing process (once done bearing children), more women would continue lifelong exercise. I already explained to my daughter that this is something she’ll need to have done someday. And I told my son to make sure he allows his wife to have this operation! —-Unfortunately, medical treatment is still based on male definitions of ‘necessary’. If men also endured changed body figuration due to parenthood, we’d have had plastic surgeons in the birthing rooms long ago!
