Our Mommy Makeover Procedure Options

At Gartner Plastic Surgery in New Jersey, we understand that every woman’s body is unique, and so are her concerns and goals after childbirth. That’s why we offer a range of customizable mommy makeover procedure options to address your specific needs and help you achieve your desired results. 

Our expert team, led by Dr. Gartner, a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in mommy makeovers, is dedicated to guiding you through the process and creating a personalized treatment plan that suits you best.

Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck procedure targets loose abdominal skin, excess fat, and weakened muscles caused by pregnancy and childbirth.

Dr. Gartner will carefully remove the excess skin, tighten the underlying muscles, and contour the waistline to create a firmer and more toned abdomen.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation enhances breast size and shape, addressing volume loss or asymmetry that can occur after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

With the use of breast implants or fat transfer techniques, Dr. Gartner will work closely with you to determine the most suitable options for achieving your desired breast appearance.

Breast Lift 

A breast lift is designed to restore a more youthful and lifted position to breasts that have sagged or lost their firmness due to pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Dr. Gartner will remove excess skin, reshape the breast tissue, and reposition the nipples to create a more rejuvenated and perky breast appearance.


Liposuction can target stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, helping to contour and sculpt your body after pregnancy.

Dr. Gartner will use advanced liposuction techniques to precisely remove excess fat deposits, revealing smoother, more defined contours.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal rejuvenation procedures address concerns such as vaginal laxity, dryness, or decreased sensation that can arise after childbirth. 

Dr. Gartner offers various surgical and non-surgical options, including labiaplasty, vaginoplasty, and non-invasive laser treatments, to restore vaginal tightness and enhance sexual well-being.

During your consultation, Dr. Gartner will thoroughly assess your unique concerns and goals, discussing your available options and recommending the most suitable procedures for your mommy makeover. Our focus is on delivering natural-looking, transformative results while prioritizing your safety and well-being throughout the entire process.

FAQs About Mommy Makeovers

How Long Does the Recovery Process Typically Take?

The recovery period after a mommy makeover can vary depending on the specific procedures performed and individual healing rates. Generally, patients can expect a recovery period of about two to four weeks. During this time, it is important to follow post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Gartner, including restrictions on physical activities and wearing compression garments. It’s crucial to allow your body ample time to heal and avoid strenuous activities until cleared by your surgeon.

When Can I Resume My Regular Activities, Including Exercise?

The timeline for resuming regular activities, including exercise, will depend on the extent of the procedures performed and individual healing progress. Dr. Gartner will provide you with specific guidelines based on your personalized treatment plan and your body’s response to surgery. Initially, it’s important to allow yourself ample rest and avoid strenuous activities. As your recovery progresses, you will gradually be able to increase your activity level. It is crucial to follow Dr. Gartner’s instructions to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of complications.

Are The Results of a Mommy Makeover Permanent?

While the results of a mommy makeover are long-lasting, it’s important to note that they are not entirely permanent. The natural aging process, fluctuations in weight, and future pregnancies can affect the outcome over time. However, by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight, you can prolong the results of your mommy makeover. Dr. Gartner will provide you with guidance on how to best maintain your results and optimize your long-term satisfaction.

Will My Mommy Makeover Procedures Be Performed at the Same Time or Split Up Into Different Days?

The approach to performing mommy makeover procedures can vary depending on individual factors and the specific procedures involved. In many cases, multiple procedures can be performed during a single surgical session, combining the benefits of efficiency and convenience. This approach allows for a comprehensive transformation and reduces overall downtime for the patient. However, the decision to combine procedures or schedule them separately will be determined based on your unique needs, health considerations, and the recommendations of your plastic surgeon. 

During your consultation, Dr. Gartner will evaluate your goals and medical history to determine the most appropriate plan for your mommy makeover. Rest assured that your safety and optimal outcomes will always be the top priority in planning the timing and sequence of your procedures.

Will There Be Visible Scarring After a Mommy Makeover?

As with any surgical procedure, scarring is an inevitable part of the healing process. However, Dr. Gartner takes great care to place incisions strategically and employs advanced techniques to minimize scarring. Incisions are typically made in areas that can be concealed by clothing or naturally occurring creases. Over time, the scars will fade and become less noticeable. Dr. Gartner and his team can provide guidance on scar management techniques to further enhance the healing process.

Can A Mommy Makeover Be Combined with Other Procedures?

Yes, a mommy makeover can be combined with other procedures based on your individual needs and goals. Dr. Gartner will carefully assess your concerns during the consultation and recommend the most appropriate combination of procedures to achieve your desired results. Common additional procedures that may be combined with a mommy makeover include facial rejuvenation treatments or vaginal rejuvenation, depending on your specific requirements.

Can I Get Pregnant Again After a Mommy Makeover?

Yes, it is possible to get pregnant again after a mommy makeover. However, it is important to note that pregnancy can potentially affect the results achieved through the mommy makeover procedures. 

Pregnancy can cause changes in the breasts, abdomen, and other areas that were addressed during the makeover. Therefore, if you are considering a mommy makeover, it is advisable to postpone the procedure until you have completed your family and do not plan on having any more children. This will help ensure that you can fully enjoy and maintain the long-lasting results of your mommy makeover. 

It is always recommended to discuss your future pregnancy plans with your plastic surgeon during your consultation to determine the best timing for your procedure.
