The fifth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres on June 2 and there is one cast member fans can expect to see with dramatic changes, thanks to plastic surgery.

Jacqueline Laurita revealed during her interview on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on May 19 that she underwent two cosmetic surgical procedures in between taping the fourth season and fifth season of TRHONJ.

Laurita told the show's host, Andy Cohen, that she had a tummy tuck and neck lift done by Dr. Brent Moelleken, a plastic surgeon who practices in Beverly Hills and Santa Barbara, Calif. The reality star confirmed her confession on Twitter on May 19 while the episode was on air.

"That's right, I said tummy tuck and neck lift," Laurita tweeted. "Thank you, Dr. Brent!"

The 41-year-old, who previously admitted to getting breast implants and receiving Botox injections, revealed on Twitter in February that she was considering getting additional plastic surgery. She asked her followers to give their opinion on the social media site.

"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?" Laurita wrote at the time. "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."

Laurita followed up that tweet with another that included a link to Dr. Moelleken's website.

"A tummy tuck would be lovely. Anyone ever do that and love it?" she asked. "Sounds tempting."

According to the reconstructive surgeon's website, his "hybrid tummy tuck" is less invasive than the traditional hip-to-hip incision because the surgery is performed through a C-Section type incision.

Laurita has been with TRHONJ since the first season. She is married to Chris, who is the brother of another cast member, Caroline Manzone. The couple have two sons: CJ, 10, and Nicholas, 3. Laurita has a daughter, 22-year-old Ashlee, from a previous marriage.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns Sunday, June 2, at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
