Even though they are wonderful to have, children do take their toll on moms. Pregnancy, childbirth, and breast feeding all play a role in changing the mother's body from the shape she was once happy with, to one she may not feel comfortable or confident with. Childbearing can result in lax abdominal skin with stretch marks and weakness of the abdominal wall muscles. Breast feeding can result in loss of breast volume, as well as sag or droop to the breasts. Exercise alone cannot undo the changes caused by pregnancy, so it is common for moms to seek surgical assistance to return to their youthful body. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Bogdan specializes in Mommy Makeover surgery for Fort Worth and Frisco, TX, women who want both breast rejuvenation and abdominal contour improvement.

For the breasts, any number of procedures maybe appropriate. Some women who were lucky enough to have only lost breast volume may be suited for breast augmentation. If there is a significant component of sag or droop to the breasts, a breast lift operation may be the key for restoring your youthful shape. For other women, a breast reduction may be desired to attain breasts that are proportionate to their figure.
The abdominal contour component can be any of the abdominoplasty operations, whether it be a mini, standard or extended tummy tuck in Dallas-Fort Worth. Dr. Bogdan does not recommend combining a body lift with breast surgery due to the required positioning and expected length of surgery.
A traditional Mommy Makeover is performed during one operation, and has the benefit of combining the recovery period of the two operations, as well as a cost savings on the facility and anesthesia fees. Since some of the steps used during breast and abdominal surgery are redundant, there can be a significant time savings compared to separate operative interventions, and this can result in lower overall costs.
Dr. Bogdan is happy to perform combination procedures in healthy patients as long as the predicted operative time is less than 6 hours, as this reduces the associated surgical risks. The majority of combination operations can be performed in this time period, even breast reductions combined with extended abdominoplasty procedures.
The emotional impact that this kind of operation can have on a mom can be dramatic - all of the negative signs of having children disappear, and you can move forward with enjoying your children and life again. Click here to view Mommy Makeover Before and After pictures.
