Restore Pre-pregnancy Body And Breast Contours In New Jersey

Sagging breasts, a flabby belly, stubborn pockets of fat—all of these are physical changes that can happen as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. A Mommy Makeover at New Jersey’s The Peer Group can address these aesthetic issues caused by a growing baby, with specific procedure details customized to each patient’s unique needs.

The Peer Group’s experienced plastic surgeons design each Mommy Makeover to produce natural-looking results. The goal is to create balanced proportions that improve confidence and self-image for anyone seeking help in Livingston, Morristown, and beyond.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Some moms want to restore symmetry to breasts that now differ in size. Others want to get rid of their stretched-out skin hanging on their abdomen. Since pregnancy can impact multiple areas of the body, a Mommy Makeover is personalized to combine the necessary procedures. Body surgery to create slimmer contours with liposuction and a tummy tuck is frequently included, as is some type of breast surgery, whether that means a breast augmentationbreast lift, or breast reduction. The details truly depend on the patient.

A Mommy Makeover at New Jersey’s The Peer Group can include any number of body contouring procedures, including a breast reduction, breast lift, breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck, buttock augmentation, and vaginal rejuvenation.

Procedure Breakdown

Fat Reduction

Moms tend to gain weight while pregnant, and even those who successfully shed that weight after the baby is born may find that a pesky bulge remains under their chin or that their flanks have developed lasting love handles. Surgery can remove isolated pockets of fat cells from just about anywhere they are found. This aspect of a Mommy Makeover can also be used to reduce overly large breasts.

Skin Tightening

Some people have skin that “retracts” after weight loss or childbirth, which means that it returns to its original taut appearance. As skin gets older, however, it loses this ability. That means when it stretches out to accommodate a growing baby, it stays stretched out. Once the baby is born, the skin hangs lax. This can also happen after rapid weight loss. Tucks and lifts included in a Mommy Makeover—such as an arm lift or thigh lift—can address this.

Breast Surgery

Breasts go through all sorts of changes during pregnancy as milk production begins, causing an increase in size and weight. This can alter the shape, position, and symmetry of the breasts—all of which can further change if and when a baby nurses, as well as after breastfeeding is done. Some breasts stay large, while others shrink. One may change more than the other. Stretched-out skin can cause drooping and sagging. A Mommy Makeover can address any and all of these cosmetic issues.

A Mommy Makeover can also include other surgical procedures (such as labiaplasty) and nonsurgical treatments (such as laser vein reduction).

Recovery and results will depend on which elements are included in your Mommy Makeover, but everyone should expect some initial swelling and bruising. Plan to take some post-procedure time off to rest and allow your body to heal. We recommend cutting all exercise and heavy lifting for at least six weeks, but light walking is encouraged within a few days of the procedure.


If you are considering a Mommy Makeover—or aren’t sure what you want beyond knowing that you’d like to address some post-pregnancy body or breast changes—your first step should be contacting The Peer Group to arrange a consultation with a plastic surgeon. At this consultation, you can learn more about the procedure and get an assessment to be sure it’s the ideal approach for the results you want.
