My Beautiful Mommy is a new book by Dr. Michael Salzhauer, a plastic surgeon in North Miami Beach. It helps kids understand why mommy is getting a tummy tuck and a nose job, but it doesn't mention anything about her newly enhanced breasts. Dr. Salzhauer said he thought "the breasts might be a stretch for a six-year-old."
Salzhauer said he wrote the book--whose hero is a guy named Dr. Mike, who clearly knows his way around a pec implant--because he noticed that his clients were coming into his office with "kids in tow." Wait, what the hell? Nannies in Miami make enough to afford boob jobs??
