Mommy Makeover in Princeton, New Jersey

The mommy makeover is an effective combination of plastic surgery procedures that are performed at the same time to improve the areas of the body that change during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Every mommy makeover at Dr. Hazen’s NJ practice is tailored to the unique and specific needs of the individual patient so that the very best results possible are achieved.

Why get a mommy makeover?

Maybe you find it difficult to fit into your favorite types of clothing, or you avoid intimacy with your significant other because you feel self-conscious. Perhaps you don’t like being photographed because of the way you feel about yourself. These are valid reasons for seeking mommy makeover, and a trusted plastic surgeon like Dr. Hazen can help. You may be seeking improvement for:

    • Loose abdominal skin
    • An abdominal “pooch” or protrusion
    • Separated or weak abdominal muscles
    • Stretch marks
    • Stubborn deposits of fat left over from pregnancy
    • Sagging, deflated breasts
    • Loss of breast shape and fullness
    • Love handles

    Mommy makeover surgical details

    The exact procedures that are included in your mommy makeover at Dr. Hazen’s NJ practice may include the following:

    Tummy tuck

    Tummy tuck to remedy a flabby, saggy belly. This surgery involves removing loose skin and fat, repairing separated or stretched-out muscles of the abdominal wall, and narrowing the waist.

    Liposuction

    Liposuction to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that accumulate during pregnancy and don’t respond to diet or exercise. Usually liposuction is performed on the hips, flanks, and thighs, although it can also be used to contour the back, upper arms, knees, and ankles.

    Breast lift

    Breast lift to re-position saggy, droopy-looking breasts. The breast lift procedure re-locates the breasts to be placed higher on the chest wall in a perkier, more youthful-looking position. It can also fix downward-pointing nipples.

    Breast augmentation

    Breast augmentation to restore volume and shape of the breasts. Saline or silicone implants can be placed during a breast lift surgery to increase the size and fullness of the breasts.

    Candidates for mommy makeover

    Motherhood brings countless joys, but sagging breasts, a protruding belly, and stubborn fat deposits are not among them. If you’re in the Princeton, New Jersey area and you’re considering cosmetic treatment after having children, you may be an excellent candidate for a mommy makeover — even if you’re not a mommy. The best candidates for this procedure:

    • Have undergone pregnancy, breastfeeding, childbirth, or excessive weight loss and have been left with loose skin and/or deflation of the breasts
    • Have finished having children
    • Are at or near their ideal body weight
    • Are non-smokers in overall good health
    • Have realistic expectations for what a mommy makeover can accomplish

    Recovery

    Bruising, swelling, and mild discomfort are common after mommy makeover. Recovery time fluctuates based on the surgical treatment plan. In many cases, patients take approximately two weeks off of work right after surgery.

    FAQ

    Do I have to be a mommy to have a mommy makeover?

    No. You do not need to have been pregnant to undergo a mommy makeover. Some women who undergo this procedure do so because of the effects of the aging process or significant weight loss that leaves behind loose skin and deflated breasts.

    Is a mommy makeover always done all at once?

    Not always. Dr. Hazen will help you decide whether to stage out your breast and abdominal procedures into separate surgeries, allowing you time to recover in between each surgery.

    When should I plan my mommy makeover?

    There are a few considerations when timing your mommy makeover. First, your body should fully recover from childbirth and you should stop nursing about 3 to 6 months before undergoing a mommy makeover. You should also return to your pre-baby weight or “goal weight” before mommy makeover. This will give you the best surgical result. Furthermore, you should think about having your surgery at a time when you can recruit help for your recovery. During this time, you will not be able to lift heavy objects (including your children). You must have someone to assist you with childcare and household tasks while you focus on your recovery.
