New Jersey Mommy Makeover – Yes You Can Have it All

Mommy Makeover

It’s common for women to want to get back into shape following pregnancy. Unfortunately, some of the lasting changes their body goes through are resistant or unaffected by normal self-improvement efforts. It can feel discouraging for a woman to realize that diet and exercise have seemingly failed her.

Fortunately, there are other options. A Mommy Makeover in New Jersey is a set of specially chosen cosmetic procedures that target the most persistent changes pregnancy leaves behind. The goal of the makeover is to restore a woman’s body to its normal state, or even enhance it if possible.

Effects Of Pregnancy

Pregnancy can leave behind a number of undesirable souvenirs that make a woman self-conscious or dissatisfied with her appearance. Common reasons for seeking a Mommy Makeover in New Jersey include.

Loose Skin

Skin is extremely elastic but stretching too much can make it difficult to return to normal shape. This is why it is not uncommon for women to be faced with loose or excess skin after pregnancy, along with the accompanying folds and creases.

Stretch Marks

The streaks and stripes of rapidly stretched skin are natural parts of pregnancy but are also reminders many women would rather do without.

Rounded Stomach

The main abdominal muscles are normally near the middle of the belly but can stretch and be pushed to the side during pregnancy. If this happens, they become loose and hang, causing the belly to appear round.

Breast Changes

The breasts will swell during pregnancy and lactation but can shrink past their normal size afterward and wind up smaller than they were before. Alternatively, breasts may not fully lose their extra size and cause discomfort. In addition, breastfeeding can result in loss of volume and cause the breasts to appear deflated or sagging.

Fat Deposits

A woman builds up fat during pregnancy to help support the growing child and these deposits can stick around after giving birth. Fat deposits typically form along the abdomen, flanks, hips, or thighs.


Although not strictly a result of pregnancy itself, a Cesarean scar can sometimes remain visually pronounced or be thick enough to cause discomfort.

Treating It All With A Mommy Makeover

As mentioned above, a New Jersey Mommy Makeover is customizable to a woman’s unique post-pregnancy concerns. This allows optimal results to be achieved while combining procedures to ensure the least downtime possible. The procedures commonly included in a Mommy Makeover are.

Breast Lift

A breast lift addresses sagging skin and potential position changes in the breasts. During this procedure, the skin is tightened and any excess is removed and the underlying structure and position can be shifted to correct imbalances or pregnancy-related alterations.

Breast Augmentation

Implants, usually filled with saline or silicone gel, are used to restore volume, shape, and size. Augmentation is also suitable for addressing minor sagging and certain types of asymmetry.


Also known as a tummy tuck, abdominoplasty targets the biggest changes to the stomach area. In addition to removing extra skin and tightening up loose folds, the underlying muscles can be moved back into their normal position to re-tone the stomach and restore a flat and firm appearance.


Breaking down and removing fat deposits is the name of the game here. Liposuction can be targeted anywhere on the body and is often included in full tummy tucks but can also be performed separately if needed.
