Model turned actress Rebecca Romijn gave birth to twins at the end of last year, leading many to speculate about a plastic surgery mommy makeover for the new mother.
The twins are the first children born to 36-year old Rebecca and her husband, 34-year old actor Jerry O’Connell, twin brother of actor Charlie O’Connell. As soon as Rebecca began stepping out without the twins, rumors began that the nearly 6-foot tall beauty had been under the knife to get her pre-baby body back to looking as good as it did when she played Mystique in the X-Men films.
A “Mommy Makeover” surgery usually includes a tummy tuck to help restore a post pregnancy belly to a firmer, flatter stomach, as well as a breast lift and/or augmentation that gives the mommy the full, perky breasts they lost due to breast feeding. (See Make Me Heal’s story on a Mommy Makeover).
However, it would a little soon for the procedure, as plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden points out, “Rebecca Romijn does not appear to have undergone any surgery. She is only a few months after giving birth to twins, and appears to be healthy and exercising to lose the baby weight. No plastic surgeon in his or her right mind would operate so soon on this beauty after she just gave birth to twins.”
Plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia concedes that while a mommy makeover is a possibility, it is hard to tell given the loose-fitting clothing Rebecca has been sporting on her public outings, “Rebecca Romijn looks great, but she is in a loose jump suit.”
Rebecca seems to be following in the footsteps of another celebrity mom with twins, Jennifer Lopez. JLo was another example of a mommy makeover rumor that Make Me Heal disproved. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Jennifer Lopez’ plastic surgery rumors).
Dr. Sherrell J. Aston is another plastic surgeon that agrees that Rebecca is regaining her shape without plastic surgery. He says, “There is no suggestion that Rebecca Romijin has had any cosmetic surgery and in my opinion she doesn’t need it. She is regaining her shape naturally.”
Make Me Heal wishes the new parents the best of luck with the difficult task of taking care of twins.
