Mother’s Day is this month – if you are a new mommy, congratulations! If you’ve been a mommy for a few years now, you deserve some credit, too – it’s never an easy job. Part of being a mommy means that your body has gone through big changes, and it can be difficult to get your pre-baby body back. Read on for details about Mommy Makeovers and why one might be right for you!
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can add fat, stretch out the skin, and make the breasts sag. Despite your best efforts, it can be difficult to get rid of all of the fat with diet and exercise – and it is next to impossible to restore tone where you want it.
In a Mommy Makeover, you and your doctor decide which procedures can help you to meet your goals. Perhaps you would like a breast lift, a tummy tuck, and liposuction – a Mommy Makeover is made up of whatever you would like it to be. It may even include a facial procedure, such as a neck lift or help with puffy eyelids.
The great thing about a Mommy Makeover is that you can have a few procedures done in only one or two sessions. This means less exposure to anesthesia, less of the hassle that comes with dealing with surgical procedures, and only one or two recovery periods instead of many after many separate surgeries.
Some other things you should know about Mommy Makeovers
If you are considering a Mommy Makeover, it is best that you are done having children and breastfeeding. It can take up to a month after the procedure until you can return to any strenuous activities, and it will be at least 2 weeks before you can even return to your normal, everyday activities – make sure you have help around the house, especially if your children are still young.
If this Mother’s Day has you reflecting on what your body looked like before you got pregnant, it may be time to do something about it, with a Mommy Makeover! Call the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, today for an appointment, at (908) 879-2222!

Moms deserve pampering – that’s a fact. They also deserve to love their bodies, even though part of being a mom means that the body goes through a lot of drastic changes. A mommy makeover is one step beyond pampering; it is a way to get some of your pre-baby body back!
What is a mommy makeover?
Your body has gone through a lot of changes after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover can help with one or many of these changes. A mommy makeover is whatever you want it to be, based on the results you want to see. It may mean a tummy tuck to take care of that excess skin and fat, a breast lift for breasts that have lost volume, or liposuction for more toned hips and thighs. Or, it can be all three of these and more!
What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover means that many procedures are done all at once, or in only two sessions. This means that your exposure to anesthesia is reduced, and it also means just one or two recovery periods instead of several (after several different surgeries).
What happens after a mommy makeover?
It can take about 2 weeks to get back to your normal activities after this procedure and about 3 to 4 weeks to get back to strenuous activities such as sports. Make sure you have help around the house if your children are still young.
You should be finished having children, and you should be finished breastfeeding before you consider a mommy makeover. You should also lose as much of your pregnancy weight as possible.
Becoming a mom is a beautiful thing, but sometimes the body doesn’t easily bounce back from all of the changes that come with it. And sometimes dieting and exercise just don’t do the trick. If your baby is older and you finally have some time to spare, it may be the right time for some well-deserved pampering. For a mommy makeover consultation, call Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey. Contact them today, at (908) 879-2222.

As you ring in the New Year, you may be making resolutions for self-care and self-improvement. That’s why now may be the time to consider a Mommy Makeover. Read on to learn more about this popular surgery that can address multiple concerns in one surgical setting.
What it is
Pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can do a number on a woman’s body. Sagging breasts, excess stubborn fat and loose skin are the three major concerns women have after having children. What’s great about a Mommy Makeover is that it’s an all-in-one surgery that combines multiple procedures in one. This is safer and more convenient as it means only one recovery period rather than multiple surgeries and recovery periods.
Combination of procedures
A Mommy Makeover is customized to fit each patient’s needs. The most common procedures include a breast lift, breast augmentation, breast reduction, tummy tuck, liposuction and facial rejuvenation.
Breast enhancement will help women address the loss of elasticity, firmness and shape of their breasts due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. A breast augmentation will change the size and shape of the breasts using implants. A breast lift will help reshape and lift sagging breasts. Women who have abnormally large breasts may opt for a breast reduction to help alleviate chronic pain in the neck and back, reduce skin irritations and improve posture.
A tummy tuck tightens the abdominal muscles stretched during pregnancy and childbirth and removes excess skin. Liposuction removes those stubborn fat pockets in various areas of the body that resist diet and exercise, giving you a more contoured, slimmer appearance.
Sometimes smoothing and tightening the sagging skin on the face are desired as well. Facial rejuvenation may consist of a neck lift, jowl lift or eyelid surgery to address tired-looking eyes.
The ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover will be done having children and breastfeeding, has lost as much of her pregnancy weight as possible before surgery, and has waited at least six months after giving birth to her last child. If you’re done with childbearing and longing for your pre-pregnancy body, schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinstein by calling (908) 879-2222.

When a woman has finished childbearing, she often has many areas of concern on her body. Sagging breasts, loose skin and excess fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise entails a variety of procedures that can be done separately. A “Mommy Makeover” is a surgery that has become increasingly popular because it combines all of these procedures into one surgery and one recovery period. While a Mommy Makeover is customized to each patient, there are several common procedures:
A breast augmentation can enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts, often correcting the loss of breast volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding. There are multiple techniques and different sizes and shapes of implants that can help women achieve the contour they desire.
Pregnancy and nursing and aging in general cause the breasts to lose their elasticity, firmness and shape, causing them to sag. A breast lift reshapes and “lifts” sagging breasts.
Women with abnormally large breasts often suffer from chronic pain in the shoulders, neck and back, as well as posture problems, headaches and skin irritations. A breast reduction reduces the weight and size of a woman’s breasts and can improve the look and appearance of the areola.
Excess skin, unsightly fat deposits and stretch marks are common concerns after childbirth. A tummy tuck is a procedure that involves removal of excess fat and skin from the abdomen and tightens the fascia surrounding the muscles of the abdominal wall.
Diet and exercise alone can’t remove some of the most stubborn fat pockets. Liposuction targets these fat pockets in multiple areas of the body to help contour a more proportioned and slimmer figure.
A neck lift, jowl lift or removal of puffy eyelids are facial rejuvenation procedures that can be added to the Mommy Makeover surgery. These procedures smooth and tighten the sagging skin and helps women look more refreshed and youthful.
To learn more about a Mommy Makeover and which combination of procedures could help you get your pre-pregnancy body back, call (908) 879-2222 for a consultation with Dr. Weinstein.

You will put a lot of time and effort into finding the perfect gifts for family and friends this year, so why not treat yourself to something special? Consider a consultation with Dr. Weinstein to discuss a Mommy Makeover so you can start off the New Year with a new you.
Pregnancy and childbirth can do a number on a woman’s body, leaving you with loose skin, stretch marks, sagging breasts, damaged abdominal muscles and more. Many women exhaust their diet and exercise efforts but can’t get their pre-pregnancy body back. That’s when a Mommy Makeover can help you get your pre-baby body back.
In addition to women who have lost as much pregnancy weight as they could on their own, candidates for surgery include women who are done with childbearing and breastfeeding, and have waited at least six months after giving birth to her last child before considering surgery. You will need to be in good health as multiple procedures will be involved. It’s also good to have a positive outlook and realistic expectations going into this life-changing surgery.
While customized to your needs, this all-in-one surgery usually combines a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, breast augmentation or breast reduction to achieve the desired look. You can even add facial rejuvenation procedures such as a neck lift or jowl lift or eyelid surgery to achieve an even more youthful appearance.
Your comprehensive consultation with Dr. Weinstein will help you determine your best options, understand the risks involved and help you set up expectations for what you’d like to achieve. The length of procedures varies depending on your needs – usually ranging from two to six hours. And, depending on how extensive your makeover is, you may need more than one session. Recovery and healing can take several weeks or months depending on what procedures were performed, so it’s important to follow your surgical team’s instructions and keep all post-op appointments.
Helping moms restore their bodies for more than two decades, Dr. Weinstein is committed to helping you achieve your post-pregnancy body goals. Contact our office today at (908) 879-2222 to schedule a Mommy Makeover consultation with Dr. Weinstein.

The first hybrid fractional laser, the Halo laser delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths of laser energy to the skin. What this means is that while one laser targets the skin’s outer layer, called the epidermis, the second laser creates factional channels into the skin’s second layer, called the dermis. Combined, this helps remove sun damage you can see and the damage you can’t.
Here are some fast facts about Halo laser skin resurfacing:
- Halo treats several skin conditions, including sun damage, wrinkles and fine lines, skin resurfacing, enlarged pores, acne scars, pigmented lesions and actinic keratoses.
- Halo can treat all skin types and not just on the face. It’s used to treat the skin on the neck, cheek, arms, hands and legs.
- It’s more comfortable than traditional, non-hybrid fractional resurfacing, and won’t leave your skin damaged and red as it combines non-ablative energy and mildly ablative energy.
- The procedure is not painful. Some patients describe it as a slight prickling sensation. Topical anesthetic combines with Halo’s cooling technology to keep you comfortable during the procedure. After treatment, your skin continues to feel warm for up to 30 minutes and maybe longer with deeper treatment.
- It is fast healing as only a topical anesthetic is applied to your skin, and you can be back to wearing makeup in 24 hours.
- There is very little downtime, and you should be able to return to work within a few days.
- You’ll see results in just two to five days after treatment, and in only 1-2 treatments, unlike older technology that required several treatments for similar results. And treatments can be more or less aggressive depending on your timeframe and number of sessions you want.
- Results are permanent and will last as long as you protect your skin from further UV damage.
To learn more about laser skin resurfacing and other ways to restore a youthful, healthy glow, schedule a consultation with Dr. Wiener by calling (773) 763-3990.

And although motherhood is something to embrace and be proud of, it can also take quite a toll on your body. If you wife’s self-esteem has plummeted since having babies, consider giving her the best gift of all (second to motherhood) and give her a mommy makeover.

If you are a mom, you know that even though it can be challenging, motherhood is one of the most rewarding things you get to experience as a woman. However, motherhood also means that your body has likely been through it all— including the stretching, weight gain, weight loss, and breast deflation after breastfeeding. Luckily, Dr. Larry Weinstein offers patients a combination of surgical procedures to help you get your pre-pregnancy body back. These procedures include a breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, breast reduction, and facial rejuvenation. To help you better understand the ins and outs of this procedure, we have created an article debunking three common myths associated with a mommy makeover. Read on to learn more.
Myth 1: You Have to Show Your Mom Card
Even though mommy makeovers are primarily popular amongst moms, you certainly don’t have to be a mom yourself to undergo this type of surgery. In fact, some of the best candidates for these combinations of procedures are patients who have recently lost a lot of weight. So, if you don’t have children yourself, you can still be an excellent candidate for this surgery.
Myth 2: You’ll Have Plenty of Scars to Show for It
Luckily, with the advancement of technology and with Dr. Larry Weinstein’s keen eye for detail, you won’t have to worry about having huge, visible scars to conceal after your mommy makeover. In fact, scars from liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast augmentation can all be concealed with a bra and underwear itself— meaning that you can jump into a bikini next summer without having any scars to show for it.
Myth 3: More Surgeries Means It’s Painful
One of the biggest reasons why we encourage our patients to get a mommy makeover is that it reduces the amount of pain you experience and the recovery time you have to go through. By doing multiple procedures at once, you will get to experience the recovery of just one procedure.
If you would like to learn more about mommy makeovers and whether or not you’re a good candidate, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein today to schedule a consultation.

Ten to twenty years ago, the only thing that a women would get for giving birth to a baby was the gratification that they gave someone new life. However, with more and more pressure from society and other soon-to-be mommies, came the concept of a push present. What is a push present exactly? A push present is a gift that the husband or significant other gives the mother of their child in order to show gratitude for giving birth to their child. With things like fine jewelry and lavish beach vacations topping the list, it can be hard to know just what to give your baby mama as a push present. If you’ve been racking your brain trying to decide what to give her, why not consider a mommy makeover? Read on to learn more about mommy makeovers.
Get Her Body Back
Although pregnancy and motherhood are a privilege and a joy for women, these joys can also wreak havoc on a woman’s body. As part of a mommy makeover, you can help give her her body back through either a tummy tuck, breast augmentation surgery, liposuction, or a combination of all three. And in order to not sound insensitive about the whole subject matter, be sure to let her know that you love her the way that she is but know that she’s happier when she is her best physcial self.
Depending on whether your significant other delivered your baby vaginally or via c-section will help your plastic surgeon decide how long she needs to wait until she goes under the knife. Also, your plastic surgeon will have to take into consideration things like breastfeeding. If your doctor recommends that she wait a few months before getting surgery, make sure to reassure her and let her know that she will have her body back fairly shortly.
To learn more about getting your significant other a mommy makeover as a push present, contact our office today!
