NJ Mommy Makeover Procedure Options

Beverly Friedlander MD

Each Mommy Makeover procedure is specifically designed to meet all of your needs. The Mommy Makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures customized to your specific goals. Knowing your options is the first step to determining which techniques are most suitable for achieving your goals.

Tummy Tuck

During pregnancy, the stretching of the abdominal tissues can leave loose skin, extra fat, and poor muscle tone after childbirth. A full Tummy Tuck is the most popular option. It addresses abdominal concerns by incising the lower abdomen to remove loose skin and excess fat and tighten the abdominal muscles.

Mini Tummy Tuck

A mini-abdominoplasty tightens lax skin on the lower abdomen only. The resulting scar is shorter and more discreet than a full tummy tuck. However, it does not include abdominal muscle repair. Liposuction may accompany the procedure to define the abdominal contours further, highlight the muscles, and reduce fat.

Full Tummy Tuck

Most patients require a full abdominoplasty to see the best results. Because abdominal muscle separation occurs in up to 60% of pregnancies, Dr. Friedlander performs muscle plication to suture the ab(rectus) muscle together at the midline, thereby eliminating the dreaded mommy pooch that leaves some women looking pregnant long after childbirth. With a scar that extends from hip to hip, she removes and tightens lax skin on the upper and lower abdomen. It can also correct a frowny belly button and may reduce some stretch marks on the lower tummy. Dr. Friedlander may also perform liposuction with the tummy tuck for surgical fat reduction.

Extended Tummy Tuck

After multiple pregnancies, some patients have excess skin on the frontal abdomen and sides. As a result, the extended tummy tuck has a longer incision that extends across the lower abdomen and above the hips. Dr. Friedlander re-sects the flabby skin and tightens the abdominal muscles to leave you with a flat, toned tummy and a narrow waistline through the incision. Like other tummy tucks, she may also perform liposuction to get rid of unwanted fat as well.


Extra fatty deposits may form anywhere on the body after pregnancy, particularly around the hips or flanks (creating a muffin top), the outer and inner thighs, and the abdomen. Liposuction can sculpt the shape and appearance of the desired area by removing excess fat. In addition, a Brazilian Butt Lift can restore your curves by improving the shape of your booty and your waist, and it can safely be performed with a tummy tuck if needed.

Breast Augmentation

After pregnancy and nursing, the breasts often lose volume and become pendulous or droopy. Breast augmentation involves the placement of implants to improve the size and shape of your breasts. In addition, breast lift surgery removes lax tissue to lift and re-contour the breasts into a perkier position and shape. An augmentation mastopexy (augmentation with a lift) combines the benefits of both procedures and restores fullness and shape to the breasts.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Because the Mommy Makeover combines multiple procedures into one surgery, you only need one recovery period.

Following their Mommy Makeover New Jersey patients will be given specific post-operative instructions regarding their recovery based on the procedure(s) they have undergone. Recovery is different for each patient and can range between three to six weeks. If you are a mother with young children at home, it is crucial to have child care assistance because you must refrain from lifting anything over five pounds.

Mommy Makeover Results

Depending on how your body heals, you can expect to see full results within six months. Any visible scars will fade over time. Your overall Mommy Makeover results will last for up to ten years or more, provided you maintain a stable weight. However, breast implants do not last forever, and you should discuss maintenance options with Dr. Friedlander during your consultation.
