Having children is one of life's most joyous experiences. But the physical toll taken on women's bodies by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can undermine confidence in their bodies. You can restore that confidence with a suite of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures called a Mommy Makeover. In the Fort Worth, TX, area, Dr. Michael Bogdan is the choice of moms looking for an experienced, talented, and board-certified plastic surgeon.

Mommy Makeover surgery combines more than 1 surgical procedure in a single operation. After discussing your concerns and cosmetic goals, Dr. Bogdan creates a customized surgical plan that includes various procedures that can create the results you want. Dr. Bogdan is a Mommy Makeover specialist who has performed thousands of breast enhancement and body contouring procedures during his career.
A Mommy Makeover combines some of these procedures:
In many cases, Dr. Bogdan may recommend a breast lift with implants to restore both the fullness and youthful shape of the breasts.
Even though many Mommy Makeover patients are women with younger children, there is no specific age limit to get the procedure. The most important factor is that you're in good overall health. Dr. Bogdan reviews patients' health histories and conducts a physical exam during the consultation. Women who haven't had children may also be good candidates for combining breast enhancement with body contouring procedures. Age-related changes to the body are similar to those experienced by mothers.
As you might imagine, the recovery following a Mommy Makeover depends on the specific procedures performed by Dr. Bogdan. We provide detailed postoperative instructions that help minimize discomfort and accelerate the recovery process when they're closely followed. The procedure that typically takes the longest time to heal is a tummy tuck. Having cosmetic breast surgery and body contouring surgery in one operation can make the recovery a bit more uncomfortable than if you had separate procedures, but the tradeoff is that with multiple procedures, you have the inconvenience of multiple recoveries. Most patients believe the benefits significantly outweigh the disadvantages when considering a Mommy Makeover.
The choice of a plastic surgeon to perform Mommy Makeover surgery is 1 of the most important decisions you'll make. Few surgeons can match Dr. Bogdan's impeccable credentials and extensive experience. His training includes:
Dr. Bogdan is recognized by peers as one of the field's leading innovators, and the advanced technology his practice uses reflects his ongoing leadership. His personal approach has earned him both the Patients' Choice Award and Compassionate Doctor honor for several years from Vitals.com.
The cost of a Mommy Makeover varies depending on the procedures involved and the extent of the operation. For example, combining a breast lift with augmentation will cost more than if you only want a breast lift. One of the benefits of choosing a Mommy Makeover, however, is that certain fixed costs are only charged a single time (such as the operating room fee.) We provide a detailed price quote at the end of your consultation.
Possible, yes. But Dr. Bogdan recommends that patients who plan to have more children postpone any cosmetic surgery. Pregnancy and breastfeeding would likely compromise the results produced by a Mommy Makeover.
Our primary concern is patient safety, and Dr. Bogdan would not recommend a Mommy Makeover if he had any doubts about the patient's health. There are risks involved with any surgery, but Dr. Bogdan's experience and training minimize those risks, and he's performed these types of procedures multiple times throughout his career with excellent results.
It's important to arrange for child care during your recovery because you won't be able to lift even a small child for 2 or more weeks after surgery. Dr. Bogdan recommends waiting at least 6 months after you're finished breastfeeding before scheduling a Mommy Makeover. This allows your breast to fully stabilize prior to deciding on how you want to change them.
