Personalize Your Plan to Reclaim Your Pre-Baby Body—Or Get a New, Curvier Shape

Stretched abdominal muscles, sagging breasts, and loose skin are more than aesthetic concerns for many women; these common post-pregnancy issues can have a real impact on one’s physical comfort and self-confidence.

At Parker Center, we understand that it’s not easy for everyone to accept these changes. If you are struggling to feel good in your body despite a healthy diet and consistent exercise, it may be time to consider a mommy makeover to address your concerns like many women from Hackensack, Ridgewood, Mahwah, and Somerset. Dr. Parker can customize your procedure plan to help you regain confidence in your appearance and feel as beautiful as you are.

What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

There are a number of benefits unique to mommy makeover surgery that make it an excellent option for busy, active moms:

  • Addresses concerns that diet and exercise alone cannot, such as stretched abdominals, loose skin, and drooping breasts. If you have lost the “baby weight” and exercise regularly, yet still have a protruding belly, a mommy makeover with a tummy tuck can help you repair stretched and separated muscles (diastasis recti) and achieve a firmer, flatter belly. It may even alleviate lower back pain!
  • Achieves comprehensive improvements with one surgery and recovery. Combining procedures lets you accomplish all of your aesthetic goals at once, saving you time in the long run versus undergoing several surgeries.
  • Enhances the fit and comfort of clothing. By restoring shape to stretched, sagging tissues and eliminating excess skin, a mommy makeover can help bras, swimsuits, fitted dresses, and waistbands fit the way they were intended—many patients are able to wear fitted dresses for the first time in years after their procedures; others are happy to no longer have to wear 2 sports bras when working out.
  • Allows you to focus your energy on what’s important. One of the most powerful, yet least expected benefits of mommy makeover surgery is how much it can free a patient emotionally. We’ve had many patients who say that they didn’t realize how much their appearance affected their self-confidence until they had surgery.

“I had a great experience with Dr. Parker. I had a mommy makeover, my breasts, and tummy, after 3 children. His staff prepared me for the surgery, and they were very supportive. I highly recommend Dr. Parker.”

Mommy Makeover Patient

Time in surgery varies for each patient, depending on the procedures Dr. Parker is performing, and typically lasts several hours. Depending on the extent of surgery, you may be able to go home after an hour or two in our recovery suite. If your surgery is extensive, you may need post-op monitoring in our aftercare facility or in the comfort of your own home by a private duty nurse.

What Is Mommy Makeover Recovery Like?

Most patients can resume normal daily activities within 2 to 4 weeks. More strenuous activities, such as lifting, exercise, and physically demanding jobs, can be resumed after 4 to 6 weeks. Depending on the age of your children, you may need childcare help during the first few weeks, until you are cleared to lift and carry heavier items.

Recovery also varies depending on the procedures performed. If you had a tummy tuck as part of your mommy makeover, recovery will normally take longer than if you had only breast enhancement and liposuction, for example.
