Today’s Favorite New Jersey Mommy Makeover Combinations

Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy is not easy on the body and the process often impacts a woman’s appearance in ways that persist long after delivery. This results in changes that make a woman self-conscious–especially since changes like loose skin or sagging breasts are not affected by diet and exercise. The desire for rejuvenation is why the New Jersey Mommy Makeover is so popular.

A Mommy Makeover is a set of cosmetic procedures specifically chosen to respond to the typical changes pregnancy leaves behind. By combining these procedures together, a Mommy Makeover achieves fantastic results while being less expensive and risky than undergoing each treatment individually.

The Big Three

The three procedures that feature in most Mommy Makeovers are liposuction, breast augmentation, and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).


Liposuction is when fat deposits in the body are dislodged and sucked out. When done as part of a Mommy Makeover in New Jersey, liposuction targets the hips, thighs, and flank. These areas are not only where fat tends to accumulate during pregnancy, but the fat there is known to be resistant to typical weight loss approaches.

Breast Augmentation

The breasts swell during pregnancy and this causes the skin to stretch. This stretching, along with gravity and the pull of breastfeeding, causes the breasts to sag or have a deflated appearance afterward. Breast augmentation uses implants to restore the breasts’ natural shape and volume. If a woman does not want implants but still wishes for the effects of augmentation, fat removed from liposuction can be used to enhance the breasts instead.


Skin is fantastically elastic, which is why it can expand and stretch as pregnancy progresses. This has the unfortunate side effect of creating looseness and sags following delivery. Elasticity is not affected by diet or exercise so there is no way for a woman to “work off” this extra skin on their own. Abdominoplasty removes excess skin, repairs and re-tightens the underlying muscles, and restores the body’s normal contours.

Other Procedures

The Big Three outlined above are the most common procedures employed in a New Jersey Mommy Makeover. There are also other cosmetic treatments that can be performed as part of the Makeover to help respond to more specific image concerns.

Breast Lift

A breast lift is similar to an abdominoplasty or facelift in how it is used to remove excess skin and adjust the underlying structure and position of the breasts. A breast lift is useful if the breasts have shifted position from feeding or if there is sagging too pronounced for breast augmentation to address. Pregnancy changes can also magnify existing asymmetries and a breast lift is used to restore balance.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction can be performed to address mild-to-severe sagging or to respond to breasts that have remained swollen. The decision to pursue breast augmentation, lift, or reduction, depends on a mixture of individual circumstances, body type, and personal choice, and the details of which will best support the goals of a Mommy Makeover can be discussed with your doctor.

Scar Revision

Cesarean deliveries can leave behind scars that do not fully fade or are thick enough to cause discomfort or distraction. Scar revision is when the skin is treated to blend the scar and lessen its appearance or to remove the scar entirely. The exact nature of the revision depends on skin type and the specifics of the scar in question.
