Becoming a mother is often a woman’s greatest joy, but most would agree it doesn’t come without sacrifice. Stretch marks, weight gain, and sagging breasts may lead to poor body image and low self-esteem. Thankfully, modern cosmetic surgery procedures have allowed many women to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies and their confidence.
But what should you consider before deciding if surgery is right for you?
In I Love My Kids, but I Want My Body Back, Dr Malcolm Linsell shares his patients’ experiences so other women will know what to expect when contemplating plastic surgery. From initial consultation to surgery and beyond, 10 women reveal how their body image issues had a negative impact on their mental and physical health, relationships, and quality of life. Their stories are honest accounts of how they found the courage to change what they didn’t like about their bodies, creating for themselves a calm self-assurance that radiates out to those around them.
As a plastic surgeon with nearly 30 years’ experience, Malcolm Linsell feels privileged to help his patients rediscover their zest for living. To him, the women featured in this book are heroes. He hopes their stories will inspire other women to take the same leap of faith and reclaim their individual identities.

As a medical professional with 25 years of experience I had lost my faith in a lot of my colleagues. It's uplifting to find a doctor who truely cares , understands and delivers for his patients. It has also proven some of my assumptions about why patients seek cosmetic surgery to be false., I never considered they could be terrified or have feelings of guilt. Truely worth a read if considering or involved in cosmetic surgery.
