After having a baby, many New Jersey women find that their body isn’t the same as it used to be despite diet and exercise. They may have extra or sagging skin in the belly or breasts that make them unhappy with their appearance. Dr. Herbstman can help a woman restore her toned, lifted figure with a mommy makeover.

What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeovers are perfect for those New Jersey women who’ve had children and can’t seem to get back to their pre-baby body.  In many cases, Dr. Herbstman can even help a woman look better than she did before.

Because a mommy makeover is a set of customized procedures, it can completely revitalize a woman’s figure by fixing:

• A lack of fullness in the upper part of the breasts
• Loose and sagging breast tissue
• Asymmetrical or unbalanced breasts
• Breasts that angle downward
• Removing excess skin throughout the body
• Tightening the muscles of the abdomen
• Removing pockets of excess fat
• Rejuvenating the vagina to restore functionality
• Reshaping the labia for an improved appearance
• Removing stretch marks, damaged blood vessels, and hyperpigmentation
• Reducing facial lines and wrinkles

Perhaps the best benefit of all is the customization. Women can choose exactly what areas they want to improve, helping them better meet their goals.

Is a Mommy Makeover Right for You?

Many women in New Jersey are good candidates for a mommy makeover. Dr. Herbstman can help women customize the procedure to correct whatever issues they are concerned about. Most women are excellent candidates for non-surgical facial procedures, such as microneedling, dermal fillers, Ultherapy®, Fraxel®, or BOTOX®. However, for surgical procedures like breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, tummy tuck, or labiaplasty, women must:

• Be healthy enough for surgery.
• Be a non-smoker (or willing to not smoke), as this interferes with recovery.
• Be at or close to their desired weight, as these procedures are not designed to be weight loss surgeries.

Dr. Herbstman can help each woman determine what procedures she is a candidate for at her initial consultation.

What Is the Cost of a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a highly customizable series of procedures, so it’s impossible to provide an accurate range for cost. For example, a woman who is only having a tummy tuck and microdermabrasion will have far different costs than a woman who is having liposuction, a breast lift, and a labiaplasty. For the most accurate costs and appropriate planning, women will need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Herbstman at one of his New Jersey offices.

With that said, we are pleased to offer financing in the form of CareCredit. Patients can apply for this credit program, which requires patients to make affordable monthly payments for a set term and often at zero interest.

What Is the Recovery After a Mommy Makeover?

The recovery after a mommy makeover all depends on what procedures the woman had done. For non-surgical facial procedures recovery time will be minimal. New Jersey patients may have some tenderness, redness, or swelling in the treatment area, but this should disappear within a few hours.

For surgical procedures, the recovery is more intensive. Women will likely need time to recuperate for at least a week to allow themselves to begin healing. After this, they can return to work, but they’ll still be limited in how much physical activity they can do. Dr. Herbstman’s team will be sure to provide personalized enhanced recovery instructions so each woman can optimize her healing.
