Real Housewives of New Jersey star opens up about her cosmetic surgery procedures

Woman in bra and knickers pinching tummy fleshReal Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita has revealed she has gone under the knife and had cosmetic surgery. The 41-year-old divulged the information on social networking site Twitter over the weekend, saying she had a tummy tuck and neck lift.“That's right, I said tummy tuck and neck lift,” Laurita tweeted. “Thank you, Dr Brent!” The two procedures were performed by Dr Brent Moelleken, a California-based plastic and reconstructive cosmetic surgeon. His website promotes his 'hybrid tummy tuck,' which is performed through a C-Section type incision and claims to be less invasive than a hip-to-hip incision. Laurita has previously confirmed having breast implants and using Botox, and first hinted at her body makeover in February. “When workouts and diets fail to put your body back in order after three kids, is there anything wrong with having a Dr Brent put you back together again?” she asked her fans. “I honestly think it's beautiful when people grow old gracefully. I have no idea why I choose not to. I'll fight gravity with a laser like Luke Skywalker.”
