Unleash Your Best Body
After having children, many women see changes in their physique, including weight gain, sagging, and even separation of the abdominal muscles. If you are not planning on any more pregnancies and would like to restore more youthful, lifted contours to your body, you may be a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover in New Jersey at our practice. The term “Mommy Makeover” refers to any combination of surgical approaches used to tighten, repair, or augment areas of the body commonly affected by pregnancy. The board-certified plastic surgeons in New Jersey at The Godek Center for Personal Enhancement are on hand to educate you about your treatment options and help you design the perfect procedure for your goals.
It’s Your Turn to Turn Heads
While having kids is one of the greatest gifts life can bring, pregnancy and raising children can cause a number of physical changes that many find difficult to reverse with traditional diet and exercise. Some of the most common changes women experience after pregnancy or breastfeeding include a loss of breast volume, excess skin and “sagginess” in the breasts, stretch marks, fat deposits in specific areas, a loss of abdominal tone, and more.
Fortunately, a Mommy Makeover from our board-certified plastic surgeons can effectively address most post-pregnancy aesthetic concerns and beautifully rejuvenate your appearance. Depending on your specific needs and desires, your surgeon can combine a number of procedures into one customized Mommy Makeover, helping you improve your overall appearance and restore confidence in the way you look.
To learn more about Mommy Makeovers New Jersey patients considering this procedure can read through the information provided below, or simply contact The Godek Center for Personal Enhancement to schedule a consultation. One of our experienced plastic surgeons will meet with you to develop a treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.
Cultivate Beautiful Contours
To determine the best treatment strategy for your Mommy Makeover New Jersey plastic surgeons at our practice will evaluate your aesthetic concerns, discuss your overall goals, and assess your health and medical history during an initial consultation. Some of the most common procedures patients select as part of their Mommy Makeover include the following:
Breast augmentation is an excellent option for women interested in enhancing the size, shape, or symmetry of their breasts, as well as for those simply wishing to restore lost breast volume caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding. At our practice, our doctors can perform breast augmentation using breast implants or a patient’s own fat. Learn more about breast augmentation with implants or breast augmentation with fat transfer.
The physical effects of breastfeeding and the weight fluctuations often associated with pregnancy may leave the breasts with a sagging or drooping appearance. A breast lift —or mastopexy— is designed to reduce excess skin, elevate the breasts on the chest wall, and reposition the nipples to achieve a perkier, more youthful breast aesthetic. Learn more about breast lift.
Some women find the large size of their breasts to be inconvenient or even painful after pregnancy and breastfeeding. A breast reduction can remove excess breast tissue for a more balanced, proportionate figure, effectively resolving the physical and/or emotional discomfort of overly large breasts. Learn more about breast reduction.
Also known as abdominoplasty, tummy tuck surgery is designed to remove excess or hanging skin from the lower abdomen. In addition—and particularly for women who have had children—a tummy tuck can repair stretched or torn abdominal muscles for a flatter, more toned stomach. Learn more about tummy tuck.
Many mothers notice accumulations of stubborn fat that remain resistant to diet and exercise following pregnancy. With liposuction, isolated pockets of fatty tissue can be removed from nearly any area of the body for a slimmer, more sculpted physique. Learn more about liposuction.

An Uplifting Experience
At our practice in New Jersey Mommy Makeovers can be performed as a combination of procedures in one operation or as a series of treatments staged over several months. The specific operative plan will be determined at the time of your consultation based on your needs and goals, as well as which approach can yield the best results while maximizing safety. You will receive detailed instructions on preparing for your procedure from your doctor and surgical team.
During your Mommy Makeover Toms River and Wall Township plastic surgeons at our practice will ensure you are comfortably under general anesthesia. Afterward, we will monitor you in a personal recovery area until you are ready to return home comfortably. Make sure to arrange a ride home, as you will be groggy following any procedure requiring general anesthesia.
Get Your Best You Back
Recovery time after a Mommy Makeover will vary depending upon the combination of procedures chosen as well as how many treatments are performed at once. In general, the majority of women feel comfortable resuming office jobs and other non-strenuous activities after about one to two weeks—similar to when tummy tuck and breast procedures are performed individually.
We typically recommend that patients avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for about six weeks to ensure each treatment area heals fully. It is important to note that this includes lifting children during the initial stages of recovery, so patients will likely need assistance around the house if their kids are still young. At the end of your initial consultation, your surgeon can provide you with more specific, detailed recovery information tailored to your unique treatment plan.
One of the chief benefits of having your Mommy Makeover treatment at The Godek Center for Personal Enhancement is our on-site medical spa and concierge service options. We make it part of our overall mission to give you exemplary care before, during, and after your procedure so that you are as relaxed and “pampered” as possible. Plus, our medical spa offers a number of exceptional skin care options and other services—such as scar management and massage therapy—aimed at giving you a more expeditious and pleasant recovery while helping you maintain the health and beauty of your skin.
Our plastic surgeon will plan each Mommy Makeover in a way that can help ensure any potential scarring is as minimal and discreet as possible. Tummy tuck incisions can be placed low between the hips, allowing the scar to be hidden by most underwear and swimsuit varieties. Breast surgery incisions vary depending upon the procedure but can mostly be concealed by bras, bikini tops, and/or natural features of the breasts. Liposuction generally requires only a small incision at the surgical site, so scarring is usually very minimal. In the end, the appearance of Mommy Makeover scars should fade over time, and most of our patients find the results of the procedure far outweigh concerns over residual scarring.
You will be asleep and will not feel anything during surgery. Expect some pain and discomfort during early recovery. Pain can be managed with medication prescribed by your surgeon and then with over-the-counter pain relievers.
The cost of your Mommy Makeover surgery will depend on the surgical approaches used to achieve your individual goals. At your consultation, you will get help planning a procedure that meets your specific needs and learn about the associated costs.
Health insurance does not cover a Mommy Makeover because it is a cosmetic treatment.
A Mommy Makeover may involve any combination of a tummy tuck, liposuction, or breast revision surgery.
Yes, you will need to arrange for a ride home and may want to have help around the house during the early part of recovery.
