Dolores Catania is revealing the details of her latest makeover.

The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star disclosed she recently had a tummy tuck after losing 25 lbs, according to People.

“I had lost 25 pounds from dieting and still wasn’t completely comfortable with my body,” the 49-year-old said. “I found myself still wanting to cover up. Once I hit my goal weight and I knew that my stomach wouldn’t be the way I wanted it to even if I worked out, I knew it was time.”

While she had been considering going under the knife for a while, Catania said her upcoming milestone birthday was a motivating factor to finally go through with the procedure.

"I'm turning 50 this year," she added. "And I said, ‘This is the year where I'm going to do anything I've thought about or held off on. I'm ready to do it.'”

Taking advantage of the downtime due to the coronavirus pandemic, Catania also underwent liposuction and fat transfer to augment her behind.

"You're immobile for a good three weeks," she said of her recovery, before adding, "I'm a big advocate of doing what you need to do in order to love yourself."

Catania shared images of her svelte physique while hanging out with her Bravo co-stars Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Jackie Goldschneider over the July 4th weekend.

“Love being at the jersey shore for 4th of July! 🇺🇸The gang is back together,” she captioned several snaps showing off her toned stomach.

Now more than a month since undergoing the procedures, Catania couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out.

"People are already noticing a difference," she said. "I'm still swollen. But the results are amazing already. I'm glad I did it. I have no regrets."
