find out what Dr. Gartner can do for you



You can choose a cosmetic makeover for whatever reason you wish.

Dr. Gartner’s patients are diverse. Some are young mothers who wait the recommended 6 months to one year, then undergo cosmetic surgery to help them get the “pre baby” shape again so they could get back to their pre pregnancy lifestyle.


Some are older moms who’ve raised their kids and are finally ready to do something for themselves as they enter a new phase of life. Some mommy makeover patients haven’t had children, and their body changes are due to dramatic weight fluctuations or age.

Dr. Gartner administers pre-emptive anesthesia. Pre-emptive anesthesia involves administering medication before your surgery begins in order to reduce your sensitivity. It has the ability to reduce post-operative pain and discomfort, both short and long term, making it more effective than delivering medication after the surgery has been completed, according to the study, Preemptive analgesia II: recent advances and current trends. Simply put, pre-emptive anesthesia “blocks pain from the get go”. In fact, the recovery room nurses at the university hospital where Dr. Gartner has privileges often remark that his patients tend to have a far easier recovery marked by less discomfort than those who are operated on by other surgeons. In addition, less anesthesia is administered overall.

General anesthesia can be administered, which is what most surgeons offer to patients. However, Dr. Gartner is one of the very few plastic surgeons in the country who can also perform your procedure under local anesthesia with some oral sedation. Because it is such a comfortable surgical experience with a faster recovery, about half of patients opt for local anesthesia. You won’t have to deal with any of the risks or side effects related to general anesthesia, and your recovery will be faster. Some patients can have their surgery on a Thursday, then get back to their desk job by Monday

Dr. Gartner has refined his surgical techniques to minimize the risk of capsular contracture, a common complication that can occur in many patients, according to the FDA. By doing such things as practicing strict infection control protocols and wiping the nipples with gauze then applying nipple shields during surgery, Dr. Gartner has reduced his rate of capsular contracture to a minimal margin.


Dr. Gartner has extensive knowledge of cohesive gel silicone breast implants because he participated in investigational studies before they were deemed safe for the public by the FDA. For this reason, he can better determine the most suitable implant size and shape that will achieve your desired results, based on his highly informed opinion.

Lowering the inframammary fold involves cutting significant ligaments that support the breast, adhering it to the chest wall. This has been found to increase the risk of “bottoming out”, a complication that causes the implants to become displaced and move unfavorably downward in the chest, making revision surgery necessary. In fact, this complication is one of the most common problems Dr. Gartner sees and fixes in patients who have had breast augmentation performed by other surgeons. For this reason, Dr. Gartner never lowers the inframammary fold, preventing bottoming out. You can retain your original breast fold for a more natural-looking result. This also makes wearing an uncomfortable compression garment or bra right after your surgery 24/7 unnecessary, since there’s no concern about the breasts dropping too low. The discomfort from breast augmentation is often related to the pressure of the implant lifting up muscle, and wearing a bra just creates more pressure and hurts more. You’ll only have to wear a bra once your breasts settle into position, and this is usually two to four weeks after surgery.

Sizers are used during surgery to shape the area. This minimizes the risk of your implants going too far to the sides. Because your inframammary fold remains intact as well, you won’t need to wear a bra right after your surgery unless otherwise advised. Instead, an ace wrap is placed over the top of your chest, which you’ll remove the next day. Once your implants have settled in the right spot, you can then start wearing a bra regularly to maintain your long-term results (this is generally at two to four weeks after surgery). For this reason, you won’t have to deal with the discomfort and pain of wearing a constricting compression bra for weeks after your surgery, something that is commonly advised by other doctors

A mommy makeover surgery in New York City with Dr. Michael Gartner can fill out and perk up the breasts, repair damaged abdominal muscles, everything that is following pregnancy and reveal a smooth, firm tummy as it was during pre pregnancy period. Entirely customizable, the term, “mommy makeover surgery” covers a combination of procedures which dramatically reshape and restore a woman’s figure all in one surgery.



A woman’s figure undergoes such dramatic physical changes following pregnancy and pre pregnancy periods; it’s a natural wonder, and very natural to be left with permanent alterations. More mothers of all ages are choosing a mommy makeover surgery in NYC to reverse the physical changes they don’t want to live with.


Much expanded, shifted tissue will retract more or less, but this depends on a person’s skin characteristics, genetics, muscle tone, weight gain, and so much more. If you have stretched, sagging, excess skin and excess fat, a protruding tummy or sagging breasts after bearing a baby body, and want to come back to your “pre baby” shape, that could be fixed with combination of procedures, you’re not alone, and there is a fantastic, comprehensive cosmetic surgery solution.

about the clinic




mommy makeover in NYC is entirely customizable for you. This combined cosmetic surgery allows women to tighten, tone and lift from head to toe during one operation. Typically used to restore the post-pregnancy body, most women choose breast and tummy surgeries, with a few additional options added.  You don’t need to be a mother to benefit from this makeover. If you’ve lost significant body weight, a breast and belly enhancement package may be just what you need to feel confident again. Because each woman’s mommy makeover is unique to them, so are their prices. We’ll break down a few standard components to consider, so you can get a better understanding of your potential costs

Due to its comprehensive nature, a mommy makeover carries a high price tag. Many people find it challenging to cover in a single payment, but luckily medical financing helps break down the costs into more manageable monthly payments. Gartner Plastic Surgery partners with several reputable lending companies and we can put you in touch to see if you qualify for a more convenient payment option.

Doctor Michael Gartner holds a Double Board Certification with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and American Board of Surgery. His innovations in body contouring allow his patients the fastest, most comfortable recovery experience and beautiful results. Schedule your consultation to learn about your exciting possibilities.

In addition to the cosmetic surgeries, an NYC mommy makeover quote may also include:


Non-surgical cosmetic treatments like CO2 laser, dermal fillers or Boto , Anesthesia fees , Hospital or surgical center fees , Assisting licenced staff , Any medications used or prescribed

Tummy tuck cost begins at around $6,000 and may be as high as $10,000. The price depends on how extensive the procedure will be for you because more intensive abdominoplasties take longer to complete. A “mini tummy tuck” has the lowest cost as it removes just a small amount of skin and targets below the navel. Removing significant skin, repairing a diastasis rectus (separated abdominal muscles) and removing excess fat from the tummy will comprise a more extensive surgery.

Targeted removal of fat deposits is ideal for smaller, stubborn areas like love handles (flanks) or outer thighs. Your liposuction may cost $2,000 to $8,000, depending on how many areas you treat.

Your total surgical quote may be between $10,000 to $30,000 on average. The most significant influence on the cost of a makeover is the number of procedures included. It’s usually more cost-effective to undergo multiple procedures at one time because patients pay only one anesthetic and facility fee. However, they can also count on longer recovery time.

Most mommy makeovers in NYC include breast enhancement surgery. For you, that may be a breast lift, breast implants, or both. Some women even choose a breast reduction if that’s what they need to feel more proportionate and comfortable with their figure. Breast surgery ranges from $5,000 – $10,000 in most cases.

find out what Dr. Gartner can do for you



You may need only local anesthesia and oral sedation for some makeover treatments. General anesthesia is related to side effects like lasting grogginess, nausea or vomiting, but for less invasive treatments you may forgo these.

Dr. Gartner uses advanced techniques and surgical devices like Smartlipo. This laser-assisted liposuction device is designed to decrease bleeding and bruising while improving the rate of overlying skin retraction. This leaves skin looking more toned than through older liposuction methods.

Dr. Gartner has developed an advanced technique for reducing pain and the need for excessive medications. Called “Preemptive Anaesthesia,” it involves administering anesthesia before the procedure begins and preventing severe pain from developing at all. Patients have a much more comfortable, quick recovery, which is essential for busy moms and those who wish to avoid taking narcotic pain medication when possible.


All the elements of a mommy makeover in NYC may be done in a single surgery. Your plastic surgeon will let you know how many different operations can safely be turned into a combination of surgical procedures. Dr. Gartner’s patients appreciate having only one recovery period to plan for. Scheduling time off work and regular activities can be challenging. Those who need to arrange childcare especially prefer to do it for longer, one time.


The telltale train track marks left by some stitches or staples after surgery won’t be a problem for you. Dr. Gartner uses dissolvable sutures, which are hidden under the skin and do not need to be removed. Your body will naturally break down the material over time. Incisions heal in neat, fine lines and result in less visible scars. Dr. Gartner would like to share professional tips to help minimize the look of your scars after you’ve healed.


Dr. Gartner pays special attention to the creation of a natural, youthful-looking navel, which is more vertical oval than perfectly round or horizontal.


Both pregnancy and delivery have the potential to alter a woman’s body in a variety of ways, including the development of sagging skin, sagging breasts, and pockets of undesirable fat.


The term “mommy makeover surgery” refers to a combination of two or more cosmetic surgeries that are aimed at restoring and revitalizing a woman’s shape. These procedures often include a breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, and liposuction.


Patients who are worried about breast augmentation and nursing should not make that the main reason to put off this cosmetic treatment. A typical question that is asked in New Jersey concerning breast augmentation is, “Can I still breastfeed?”.


The majority of women will be able to nurse their children in the future if they make the necessary preparations and undergo the necessary surgical procedures, particularly with the assistance of the specialists at Gartner Plastic Surgery in New Jersey.

Before we get into the details about mommy makeover procedures, let’s start off strong by going over why choosing a reputable surgeon should be your first priority.


Gartner Plastic Surgery in New Jersey has an amazing team of medical professionals as well as Dr. Gartner, our board-certified plastic surgeon, who are competent professionals in mommy makeovers.


These experts assist ladies in New Jersey in achieving beautiful outcomes from their procedures. The physical and emotional well-being of a woman may both be revitalized by the surgical procedure known as a “mommy makeover,” in addition to providing an excellent visual result. That said, with our extensive experience and training, we are able to provide patients with only the best and safest results so they can go back to their busy lives as fast as possible.

Individual recovery rates can vary; most patients resume a sedentary office job in one week with a gradual resumption of normal activity, although some return much sooner. You will probably have to wait a month or two if your job is physically demanding, particularly if it involves lifting heavy things. Typically, you can expect to recover faster if you received local rather than general anesthesia.


When diet and exercise are no longer producing the desired outcomes, a mommy makeover may be able to produce benefits that are more long-lasting. A combination of body sculpting procedures, such as breast augmentation and stomach tuck surgery, is giving women the appearance of being thinner while simultaneously improving their self-confidence.


The natural breast tissue of a woman is one of the key parts of the body that is impacted by a woman’s shifting weight as well as her hormones. As a woman ages, her breasts might change form, lose volume, and seem to have less perkiness, all of which are reasons why women may opt to get breast augmentation as part of their mommy makeover. During a visit with one of the specialists at Gartner Plastic Surgery in New Jersey, you may have a candid conversation about the many different ways in which this cosmetic treatment can be performed.

Do you ever look in the mirror and wish you could fill out your swimsuit more? Have you noticed a change in the size and contour of your natural breasts? One of the most common operations done in the field of cosmetic surgery nowadays is breast augmentation.


Breast implants provide women in New Jersey and the surrounding areas a more proportionate-looking profile along with fuller, bigger breasts, which, for many women, results in a feeling of increased self-assurance and confidence. Patients who are contemplating breast augmentation for any reason should be very honest with their doctors about whether or not they want to continue nursing after the procedure throughout the consultation process. The following are some useful guidelines that can increase your chances of success:


It is less probable that breast implants will interfere with milk production if they are placed beneath the chest muscle rather than directly under the glandular tissue. The patient’s ability to breastfeed after surgery may be affected by factors such as the position of the incision as well as its depth. If an incision is done in the armpit, beneath the breast, or in the belly button, it is less probable that the mother will be unable to nurse her child. If the areola is left alone, there is a lower risk of complications arising with the milk ducts or nerves that lie underneath it. Even if a patient has diminished feeling in their breasts following breast augmentation surgery, this may not affect their ability to produce breast milk even if it takes up to a year or two for the sensation to return to their breasts.


Having said all of that, it is imperative that you communicate all of this information to the surgeon so that they can tailor the operation to meet your requirements. In this manner, they will be able to proceed with finding the most appropriate incision and surgical procedure for you.


Although most women who get breast implants are able to breastfeed, the ability to do so is not guaranteed for every patient. In some women, getting breast implants may reduce the quantity of breast milk they make, while in others, the implants have no effect at all on their ability to produce milk.


There is also the possibility that you are worried that nursing will have a tangible effect on your breast implants. Because of changes in hormone levels and body weight, it is natural for a woman’s breasts to alter in size and form during the course of her pregnancy. However, a woman’s implants will not be immediately affected by the act of nursing her child. If you have breast implants and find that nursing causes more sagging or drooping in your breasts, a breast lift treatment might help restore them to a more perky posture.

It might be difficult for many women to go back to their pre-pregnancy shape using just natural methods. It is not always possible to juggle the demands of parenting with workouts at the gym. Even after this, some people find that decreasing weight is not enough to fix the alterations that have occurred in their bodies.


The physical changes that may occur throughout a woman’s body as a consequence of pregnancy and delivery include extra fat deposits, sagging skin, and weakened muscles. The mommy makeover surgical procedure is intended for ladies who want to return their bodies to the more youthful appearance they had before they became pregnant. There are a few things you need to ask yourself before deciding whether to schedule surgery, despite the fact that having this operation so soon after giving birth could seem appealing.

The parts of the body that are often altered the most by pregnancy and delivery are targeted during mommy makeover surgery. This combined treatment is usually individualized for each individual patient. It often consists of liposuction, breast augmentation or breast lift surgery, and tummy tuck surgery. Before undertaking these operations, it is recommended that women have a weight that is either at or very near to their optimum. You will emerge from the mommy makeover looking leaner and more toned than you did before you were pregnant.

Surgery known as a “mommy makeover” might interfere with a woman’s ability to breastfeed and produce milk. If you are thinking about getting a mommy makeover, you should postpone the procedure until you are through nursing and have stopped producing milk. Waiting at least half a year after giving birth to think about getting a mommy makeover is another sound practice that should be followed. You will be able to mend on the inside and go back to your optimal weight if you just give it some time.

The majority of potential candidates for mommy makeover surgery have already raised their children. You might think about delaying your treatment till your family has reached its maximum size if you want to have additional children in the future.


After undergoing a mommy makeover, the birth of subsequent children will have an effect on the outcomes. It is also possible that more surgery will be required. If you choose to have breast surgery, there is also a possibility that you will no longer be able to nurse your child once the procedure is done.


If you have finished having children, have stopped nursing, have allowed yourself at least six months to recuperate, and are either at or very near to your desired weight, then now is the perfect time to think about getting a mommy makeover!

The introduction of new children into your life brings about significant changes, not only to your life but also to your appearance. With all of the new obligations that come along with having children, it’s possible that you won’t have the time or energy to get back into the shape you were in before you had children, especially if your capacity for physical activity is lower than it used to be. Pregnancy, giving birth, and breastfeeding are all life events that can make it more challenging to lose weight. It’s possible that exercising on its own won’t be adequate to combat the changes in your skin laxity and increased fat deposits. A Mommy Makeover may be helpful in situations where exercise is not an option. To put it simply, the Mommy Makeover is a package of surgical procedures that can be tailored to meet the specific needs of the patient, and the end result is a more toned and contoured figure. But is it worth it to get a Mommy Makeover in New Jersey? We’ve gone over everything there is to know about this surgical option in NJ as well as the benefits involved– let’s get into it.

If you’re thinking about getting a Mommy Makeover, you should weigh the benefits and drawbacks of the procedure before making a choice on whether or not to go through with it. This Mommy Makeover guide ought to be of significant assistance to you when it comes to settling on a choice.


The Benefits Of Getting A Mommy Makeover

Regain Your Confidence

This is one of the most significant factors that plays a role in a woman’s decision to receive a Mommy Makeover. When you look in the mirror after giving birth and notice changes in your body, such as sagging skin and sagging breasts, it can be very easy for your confidence to take a hit. The treatments that are included in a Mommy Makeover offer a highly realistic and efficient way to regain the figure you had before you became pregnant which ultimately helps you feel good in your body once again.


Wear The Clothes You Like

This is yet another important argument in favor of getting a Mommy Makeover. If you find that you have stretch marks and loose skin around your stomach after giving birth, then it is highly possible that this will discourage you from wearing revealing apparel such as a bikini or other similar articles of clothing. After your Mommy Makeover, you won’t need to be concerned about these things anymore– you will feel more confident wearing the clothes you like.


Bring Your Breasts And Stomach Back To Their More Youthful Appearance

It may be uncomfortable to wear garments that are a close fit if you have loose skin around your stomach. When combined with liposuction, a tummy tuck can assist to ensure that your stomach is entirely smooth and free of undesirable sagging skin and fat deposits after the procedure.


The Downsides Of Getting A Mommy Makeover

Maintaining Your Fitness Level Will Be Necessary If You Want To Keep The Results

Because breast implants might cause issues with breastfeeding, it is especially vital that you keep this in mind if you obtain them as part of a Mommy Makeover procedure. Because additional pregnancies can also have an impact on the results of your procedures, you should wait until you’ve exhausted the possibility of having children before deciding to get a Mommy Makeover.


If You Get Implants, They Will Need To Be Replaced At Some Point In The Future

It is essential to take into consideration the fact that implants, on average, need to be replaced every ten years. This is not a huge deal, but it is something that should be brought to people’s attention because it is a common misconception that they are permanent.



The key to recovering a youthful appearance is to have a Mommy Makeover performed. You have the option of getting your breasts lifted or augmented, in addition to getting your tummy tucked and getting liposuction done. That said, the decision will be made jointly by you and your surgeon during your consultation. However, in the end, getting a Mommy Makeover will unquestionably provide you the results that you have been hoping for.


A Mommy Makeover can also have positive effects on a person’s mental health. A technique like this has the potential to significantly improve one’s sense of self-worth. You’ll have a more positive perception of yourself and regain any confidence you may have lost as a result.


One further advantageous aspect is that the method can be combined. A Mommy Makeover is a totally personalized process that is adapted specifically to meet the requirements of the patient in question. Breast lifts, breast augmentations, tummy tucks, and liposuction are the procedures that make up the majority of Mommy Makeovers. However, you can incorporate almost any cosmetic surgery in your Mommy Makeover if you so want. The following are some procedures you can combine within your Mommy Makeover:


Breast Lift

Your breasts may get droopier after you give birth and continue to breastfeed your child. A breast lift will raise your breasts to a more youthful position, giving the appearance of fuller busts. Dr. Gartner will remove any superfluous skin as well as tighten the tissues in order to raise your breasts to a higher position on your chest. A breast lift will restore the natural appearance of your breasts and contour them to your liking.


Breast Augmentation

After giving birth and continuing to nurse their baby, many women experience a reduction in breast volume. A breast augmentation might give you that something extra if you desire more than merely to correct the sagging that was caused by your pregnancy. A breast augmentation with implants or a breast augmentation with fat transfer will result in a higher cup size for the patient. These procedures are frequently performed in conjunction with a breast lift. A breast augmentation is the ideal procedure for making the changes to your physical appearance that you’ve always dreamed of making.



Dr. Gartner will do liposuction to permanently eliminate the undesired fat cells if there are parts of your body with pockets of fat that are resistant to being reduced by exercise and proper nutrition. Because he is able to be very accurate thanks to the use of a small cannula, Dr. Gartner will be able to give you subtle contours that seem completely natural wherever you want them.


Tummy Tuck

During pregnancy, the skin of the stomach stretches, and after delivery, it does not always return to its previous position. A tummy tuck can assist you in regaining your pre-baby belly if you discover that you have excess skin that hangs around your middle or that your abdominal muscles have become lax. In order to help you obtain a more toned and appealing belly, Dr. Gartner will first remove any excess sagging skin and then tighten the muscles that lie beneath the surface.

The results of a Mommy Makeover will be long-lasting; but, just like with any other surgery, it is essential to take the necessary precautions to ensure that the results are maintained. Your results will suffer if you experience a significant amount of weight gain following the treatments. This may result in your breasts sagging once more and may also cause unsightly pockets of fat to form in the area of your abdomen.


The same is true of becoming pregnant after undergoing a Mommy Makeover. It is possible for pregnancy to influence the outcomes, and this is very likely to be the case. Before going through with a Mommy Makeover, it is strongly advised that you wait until you have completed your family by having children before doing so.

Mommy Makeovers have assisted a great number of mothers in regaining their pre-pregnancy bodies and enhancing their sense of self-confidence. Dr. Gartner, a prominent plastic surgeon in New Jersey, can assist you in attaining the appearance that you desire. He has more than twenty years of expertise and holds board certification in the field of plastic surgery.

There is no denying the fact that carrying a child, giving birth, and nursing all take a physical toll on a woman’s body. Even while there are some women who are able to regain their pre-baby figure with proper food and exercise, the vast majority of women who are experiencing breast alterations, stretch marks, and other transformations find that do-it-yourself solutions are just not sufficient.


Because of this, the Mommy Makeover has gained a lot of popularity. It enables women to choose the operations that target the parts of their bodies that cause them the most anxiety, and then they can build a personalized plan to look and feel as good as they possibly can. In order to fulfill customer needs, an increasing number of plastic surgeons are providing this service; nevertheless, this does not imply that all of them are equally skilled and capable. Because of this, selecting the right plastic surgeon to help you achieve your goals should be your top priority if you’re thinking about getting a Mommy Makeover. To be of assistance to you in this endeavor, we will discuss the factors that you should take into consideration when making your decision.

A mommy makeover is a combination of many operations that are performed all at once in a specialized, tailored manner to assist women in feeling more confident and at ease with their looks and their bodies.


The following medical procedures are the most popular choices for women:

Tummy tuck or mini-tummy tuck to remove excess skin and restore a toned and firm look to the abdominal region.


Breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast lift combined with breast augmentation are all options for correcting drooping breasts and adding volume.


Using liposuction to eliminate obstinate fat deposits.


Although having many operations done all at once is more time-consuming, there are many advantages to doing so. The most essential benefit is that you will experience a maximum effect, which will provide a quick boost in confidence. Because you will only have to pay for the anesthetic and any other related expenses one time, and because the recovery and downtime will all occur at the same time, there is a reduced overall cost than there would be if you had the operations done separately.

When searching for a cosmetic surgeon to do your mommy makeover, you should put the individual’s board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery at the top of your list of priorities. This indicates that they have been through an extensive, all-encompassing screening and certification procedure, which assures that physicians have undergone rigorous training and are knowledgeable about the requirements for patient safety.


It is essential that you have your cosmetic treatments performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon if you want to be certain that you have a skilled physician who can not only produce the results you desire but who will do it in a manner that puts your health and safety as a top concern.

Finding a board-certified plastic surgeon who possesses the knowledge, experience, and training to provide you with the safest and most effective results is essential if you are considering elective surgery, such as a procedure involving plastic surgery. You will need to be very diligent in your search for such a surgeon if you are planning to undergo such a procedure.


To get you started on your search for a plastic surgeon, here are the first few things you should think about:


Accreditation From A Board

When looking for a plastic surgeon, the first thing you should do is make sure that you are going to be dealing with a trustworthy professional. If you are looking into getting cosmetic surgery, you should make sure that the plastic surgeon you choose is a member of the American Board of Plastic Surgery.


This indicates that he or she is:


Maintains adherence to a rigorous moral code. Has shown mastery of relevant subject matter. Has a minimum of five years of experience in the field of surgery. Has considerable experience in all types of aesthetic and plastic operations. Has completed the necessary testing and exams.


This is the most effective strategy for minimizing the risks associated with surgery and maximizing the likelihood of achieving the attractive, natural-looking, and long-lasting outcomes you want from your procedure.


The Surgeons Character

A consultation is an excellent time to make certain that the cosmetic surgeon you choose is the right one for your needs and goals. Pay close attention to the manner in which the surgeon conducts themselves during this visit. Consider the following:


Does he or she respond to queries in a way that is both informative and professional? Does it seem that the surgeon is rushing through the consultation in order to meet your demands, or does he or she take their time to do so? Do you have faith in this individual’s ability to perform the surgery on you? 



The body type, face characteristics, and aesthetic requirements of each individual are one-of-a-kind. This indicates that you should look for a plastic surgeon who will design a unique plan for your plastic surgery and modify the operation so that it meets the anatomical and cosmetic requirements that are unique to you.


Make sure you choose a surgeon who will:

Consider your own desires and requirements in terms of cosmetics before finalizing the strategy. Invest some effort in tailoring your process to your specific needs. Invite you to discuss the artistic aspirations and objectives you have. Pay close attention to the issues you have over your appearance in general. 


It is important to keep in mind that if your cosmetic surgeon uses a formulaic approach to doing the procedure, the outcomes may not be as satisfying as you had hoped.


Always Be Sure To Ask Specific Questions

The choice to get plastic surgery is not one that ought to be made flippantly. To guarantee you remain safe, you must ask your prospective surgeon several comprehensive questions, including:

How many times have you gone through this process? How many years of practice do you have under your belt? Which method, in particular, will be implemented? Why do you choose to employ this method over any of the others? Is there anybody else there to help you through the process? If such is the case, what kind of training do they have? Who will be in charge of giving the sedative and monitoring its effects? What kind of outcomes should I anticipate? Have you experienced any difficulties as a result of carrying out this procedure?


The next step in selecting a plastic surgeon is to make an appointment for a first consultation. This should be done after you have reduced down your list of potential candidates by looking at their websites, reading reviews, and confirming that they have board certification. In addition to gathering information regarding the treatment and determining whether or not it is appropriate for you, the purpose of this encounter is for you to meet the doctor and determine whether or not you feel at ease in their presence and are convinced that they are the best choice for you.


When you go in for your appointment for a mommy makeover, here are some things you should keep in mind:


Is the physician trustworthy? You want a surgeon who will advise you on the most effective methods to accomplish your objectives and who will also provide you with reasonable targets to strive towards. They have no business giving you advice based on what they think you want to hear.


Does the doctor pay attention to your concerns and provide you with satisfactory answers?


Instead of trying to sell you on operations that aren’t best for you, does the doctor take into account your objectives and concentrate on what’s best for you, rather than trying to sell you on procedures that aren’t best for you?

Ensuring that you take note of all these factors will help in your decision to move forward with the procedure.

Dr. Gartner , a board-certified plastic surgeon, has assisted a great number of women in achieving the physique they want through the process of a mommy makeover, allowing them to feel confident and happy both on the inside and the outside.

Both pregnancy and delivery are joyful and thrilling experiences, but they also have the potential to leave a woman’s body altered in a way that cannot be reversed. Many women who have given birth wish there was some way to get their bodies back to the way they were before they became pregnant. Even while it may not be feasible to turn back the hands of time, it is possible to reverse some of the undesirable changes that pregnancy causes. A mother makeover is the solution to this problem.


mommy makeover is a series of cosmetic operations done in a combination. The specific procedures that are performed are determined by the requirements and objectives of the particular patient. For instance, one woman may be interested in a mini tummy tuck and a breast lift, while another woman may decide that breast augmentation and liposuction are the best options for her, and still another woman may choose buttock augmentation and a breast lift as the procedures that are best suited to her needs. The beauty of a mommy makeover is that it can be whatever you want it to be, and it can offer you the outcomes that you want to be personalized to your specific needs.


The following are some of the most often asked questions about mommy makeovers, along with the answers to those popular questions.

It is possible that a mommy makeover is not the best choice for you at this moment if you are considering expanding your family in the near future. If you want to have additional children after your treatment, that is not a problem at all; however, you will have better, more long-lasting outcomes if you do not get pregnant again after the procedure. This is due to the fact that being pregnant might alter your outcomes in ways that you do not want. For instance, if you get a tummy tuck and then become pregnant, you may discover that your abdomen reverts to the way it appeared before the operation after your pregnancy is done. This is because the abdominal muscles stretch as the baby grows within the mother, resulting in damaged results for the surgery.


Because of this, we strongly suggest that you postpone scheduling any treatments until you have determined that you do not want to have any more children. If you already know that you want to have more children in the future but you want to address some cosmetic issues now, you may still benefit from specific procedures, such as liposuction in the thigh area or a breast reduction. Keep in mind that after a mommy makeover, maintaining a nutritious diet and engaging in regular exercise will continue to be just as crucial, not only for your general health but also to assist you in keeping your gorgeous results.

One of the often asked questions that we get regarding mommy makeovers concerns nursing, specifically the capacity of the women to continue breastfeeding following her procedure. Although we strongly encourage women to schedule their mommy makeovers at a time when they do not intend to have any more children, there are circumstances in which a woman may choose to have another baby afterward, or even become pregnant unexpectedly. In these cases, we advise women to schedule their mommy makeovers at a time when they do not plan to have any more children. Should this occur to you, it is only normal for you to question whether you will be able to nurse your new child when they are born.


If you do not get any breast procedures as part of your mommy makeover, then you should not experience any difficulties in continuing to nurse your child. If, on the other hand, you undergo breast surgery such as a lift, reduction, or augmentation, the response to this question is going to be somewhat more involved. Your breast’s capacity to make milk may be negatively impacted in a number of ways, including the removal of glandular tissue, the cutting of nerves or milk ducts, or the relocation of the nipple, depending on the treatment that is performed on you. It is possible for many women to breastfeed successfully following surgery; however, this cannot be guaranteed, and you should not assume that you will be able to do so when it comes to making decisions about the size and composition of your family.

When it comes to mommy makeovers, one of the most often asked topics is how to decide which treatments to get done. As was discussed before, there are several potential courses of action. You have the option of choosing just one surgery, two, three, or even more. Making an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Gartner in NJ should serve as the first step in the process of selecting your operations.


Your surgeon will be able to provide you with valuable information regarding the procedures that may be appropriate for you, such as whether liposuction or a mini tummy tuck is the right choice to address that stubborn lower-belly fat, or whether a regular tummy tuck or a body lift is required to tighten sagging skin. This information can help you make an informed decision regarding the procedures that may be appropriate for you.


You should also think about the things that are essential to you as well as the things that you anticipate. For example, you could be more worried with the fat on your hips or outer thighs than with having breasts that are smaller than usual. On the other hand, you can opt to address both of these concerns at the same time.


Have a conversation with your surgeon about the several operations that can fix the issues you want fixed and which of those treatments they can execute simultaneously. After your consultation, you should have all of the information you need to make your choice, regardless of whether or not you want to do so right then and there.

How long will it take before you are able to go back to your regular schedule? It is dependent on a number of aspects, such as the operations that are performed, how your body reacts to the anesthesia and surgery, how well you take care of yourself throughout the recovery time, the kind of job that you do, and so on.


Your surgeon will provide you with step-by-step guidelines to adhere to, which may include directions on how to care for the incision sites, the medications that should be taken, the amount of rest that you should get, when you should begin doing light exercise, and when you should follow up with them. After your procedure, it is possible that you may need to take pain medication for a period of time, and you may also have bandages or dressings on your wound for some time.


Be sure to ask any questions that you have on your recovery and the best ways to assist your body in healing itself if you want to make the most progress. It might be difficult to estimate how long it will take you to recover from the treatments you’ve had, but in general, women can anticipate needing several weeks to make a complete recovery after undergoing many surgeries. Do bear in mind that even after you have returned to your normal activities, it may still take many more months before you can see the full effects of your procedures.

Yes, you absolutely will. As a precaution against the formation of blood clots, we strongly recommend that patients walk after surgery. You are allowed to go anywhere if it is required, but you cannot walk for exercise until you have been approved by your surgeon. Just take some light walks around the house to keep yourself active during the recovery period.

Due to the fact that you will be post-anesthesia and will be on prescriptions, it is appropriate to begin eating something light on the first day after surgery for example, soup, a sandwich, or yogurt. Avoid meals that are dense or fatty since they have a tendency to irritate the stomach. The next day, if you feel that you can handle it, you should return to your regular diet. In order to protect the body from becoming dehydrated after surgery, it is vitally necessary to consume a lot of fluids.

It is recommended that you reduce as much weight as you can before surgery, since this will only help the overall outcome of the procedure. However, there are situations when a healthy diet and regular exercise won’t be enough to eliminate stubborn fat and extra skin. This is when we enter into the picture. Depending on the patient’s anatomy and weight before surgery, we are often able to remove anywhere from 10 to 20 pounds.

The mommy makeover is one of the most popular combinations of cosmetic surgery procedures used today. It was developed primarily to address typical difficulties that are experienced by women after they have gone through the processes of pregnancy and nursing. The surgical method has made its way into the mainstream media, since it has emerged as the operation of choice among the most prominent members of the Hollywood elite.



he catch-all term “mommy makeover” refers to a customized mix of body contouring treatments that are done together to address the physical alterations that remain long after pregnancy. These procedures are performed combined to improve the appearance of a woman’s body after pregnancy. The fact that there is no standard formula for a mother makeover means that each operation may be specifically adapted to meet the requirements of the particular patient. This is one reason why the mommy makeover has become so popular. On the other hand, the surgical technique often begins with a treatment that contours the breasts and the belly, and then adds other parts as required.


In this blog, we’re going to go over an overview of the mommy makeover process as well as your options in New Jersey.

As the breasts and belly are the key places that change after pregnancy, a mommy makeover would often revolve around a surgery that is performed on either the breasts or the abdomen. In both pregnancy and breastfeeding, a woman’s breasts will grow significantly, perhaps reaching an increase of one full cup size or even more. On the other hand, reverting to what is considered to be “normal” might result in a dramatic reduction in breast volume as well as obvious drooping.


During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles, skin, and tissues all stretch to make room for the expanding baby in a manner that is both safe and comfortable. Unfortunately, following delivery, these layers may not return to their tight, pre-baby form even if they are stretched out.


Your mother makeover can include the following:

Enhancement of the Breasts

Breast Augmentation

Breast lifts

Reduction of the Breasts

Tummy Tuck



Breast implants may restore lost fullness and volume, while a breast lift can assist in raising drooping skin and improve the overall form of the breasts. Breast implants are also an option. The Keller Funnel is a touch-free approach that many surgeons use to limit the risk of infection and capsular contracture during breast augmentation procedures performed today. As a result, these procedures are safer and more successful than they have ever been. Breast reduction surgery may generate a smaller, more desirable look for women who have abnormally big breasts that cause discomfort.


The abdominoplasty also known as a tummy tuck, a circumferential abdominoplasty, and liposuction are also typical additional operations that may be used to further enhance the appearance of the physique. Nevertheless, ladies don’t have to stop here; a mommy makeover may also include a thigh lift, arm lift, or Brazilian butt lift if they so want. It is possible for a mommy makeover to be conducted in a single operation depending on the specific surgeon who will execute it and the suggested sequence of operations; but, for reasons of patient safety, the treatment may also be performed in numerous sessions of surgery.

You May Need To Stay At The Clinic Or Return Home Right After The Procedure


Because the mommy makeover will be conducted as an outpatient procedure, you will be able to recuperate in the comfort of your own home. Your surgeon may suggest staying the night in a recovery suite in order to provide you with extra help during the first 24 hours after surgery.


Your Recovery Might Take Up To Two Weeks 


Although the length of time it takes to recover from your mommy makeover will vary depending on the individual procedures that were performed, you should prepare for it to take up to two weeks. During this time, you can expect to feel bloated, bruised, and in pain.


You Are Going To Want Assistance Around The Home


Because you will be sore and exhausted for many days following your mommy makeover, it will be hard for you to do your normal household duties; thus, you should ask a member of your family or a close friend for help around the home.


You Should Avoid Driving After Your Surgery


Your surgeon will write you a prescription for the essential pain medications to ensure a pleasant recovery; nevertheless, you should avoid driving while under the influence of these medications.


The Swelling May Last For A Period Of Six Months Or Even Longer 


It may take anywhere from six months to a year before the complete outcomes of a mommy makeover can be evaluated, despite the fact that some of the advantages of the procedure may be experienced very immediately.


There Is To Be No Lifting Of Any Kind, Even Newborns 


After having your mommy makeover, you should refrain from strenuous activity and heavy lifting for at least six weeks; this includes carrying newborns and toddlers who weigh more than 10 pounds.


A Mommy Makeover Is Intended For Women Who Do Not Smoke


Quit smoking at least four weeks before your mommy makeover, and continue to abstain from doing so for at least four weeks following your procedure. Smoking reduces circulation, which slows wound healing and dramatically increases the risk of major problems. Even better, make this one of the reasons you finally kick the habit once and for all.


You Will Still Need To Maintain Your Results


If you want the benefits of your mommy makeover to stay, you need to commit to leading a healthy lifestyle. This means maintaining a nutritious diet and sticking to a regular exercise program.


Choose Only A Plastic Surgeon Who Is Both Board-Certified And A Member Of The American Society Of Plastic Surgeons


Choose the finest and most experienced plastic surgeon you can find since the mommy makeover involves a mix of invasive methods. Never put your health and safety in jeopardy in an effort to reduce costs or save money.


Your mommy makeover will be life-changing, restoring confidence and pride in your looks. Get ready to experience a significant increase in self-esteem as a result of this transformation.



Since every patient is looking for different results, your reasons for wanting a mommy makeover could be different than others. The following are some factors that can influence your choice:


If the size and form of your breasts were adversely changed during your pregnancy, you may want to consider breast reduction surgery. If you’re worried about your protruding stomach and stretch marks. If the pockets of fat around your waist, belly, arms, or thighs do not improve despite your efforts to lose weight via food and exercise.

As we’ve previously noted, mommy makeovers are cosmetic procedures that aim to reverse the physical changes that come with having children and becoming older. Consider getting a mommy makeover if you’ve found that delivery has left you with any of the following characteristics:


Your breasts are sagging, unequal, and you have less breast volume. Your nipples are drooping, and your areolas are strained. 


After giving birth, your breasts have increased in size to such an extent that they no longer fit in proportion with the rest of your body, and they are now the source of your back discomfort. Your waistline has gotten heavy and less distinct, and you have stretch marks and sagging skin on your abdominal region. You went through with the C-section, and as a result, you have pockets of fat that are hanging over your surgical scar. You have extra fat not just in the hips and thighs but also in the region known as the love handles. You may see the beginnings of the aging process in your face and in the area around your eyes. If you are in generally excellent health, have a positive attitude, and have reasonable expectations for the outcome of the treatment, you are probably a suitable candidate for it.

You have a number of choices available to you, the first of which is deciding which treatments to have done.


If you decide to have breast implants, you will have the option of choosing between silicone and saline implants, and there is also the possibility of getting fat grafting done. Your surgeon will make some suggestions to you based on the size and form that you would want to attain after the procedure. If you decide to go through with having liposuction done, your cosmetic surgeon will talk to you about the many innovative technologies that are linked with it. When you go in for any of the mommy makeover operations, the incision placement choices will also be discussed with you.


The mommy makeover is considered to be one of the procedures that is the most adaptable and unique to each patient since every woman is looking for different results. For this reason during your consultation you can advise Dr. Gartner of your concerns and he will create a plan tailored specifically to you.

The mommy makeover is the perfect solution for returning a body that has just given birth to its form prior to pregnancy. Researching the mommy makeover technique on your own at home is the most effective method to get started with learning about it.
