Mommy Makeover

Author: Dr. Michael Bogdan

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 Dallas-Fort Worth, TX, area, Dr. Michael Bogdan is among the top choices of moms from Plano, Frisco, and surrounding areas looking for an experienced, talented, and board-certified plastic surgeon.

This 42 year old mother of 3 visited my Southlake plastic surgery office interested in a "Mommy Makeover". Despite exercising 10 hours per week, she was unable to achieve the body she desired.

Customizing Your Mommy Makeover

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:

  • Tummy tuck—A tummy tuck removes excess abdominal skin and minimizes the appearance of stretch marks. Dr. Bogdan almost always tightens and repairs abdominal muscles stretched during pregnancy (a condition called diastasis recti) that can cause a "belly pooch."
  • Liposuction—This procedure is typically combined with tummy tuck surgery to remove excess fat and create smooth, contoured results.
  • Breast augmentation—Pregnancy can cause breasts to appear deflated, and patients often want to restore the breasts' volume with breast implants.
  • Breast lift—Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause the breasts to sag, and a breast lift restores their shape.
  • Breast reduction—Significantly enlarged breasts can make women self-conscious or restrict their physical activity after having children.

In many cases, Dr. Bogdan may recommend a breast lift with implants to restore both the fullness and youthful shape of the breasts.

Mommy Makeover Candidates

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.

How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?

The cost of a Mommy Makeover in the Dallas-Fort Worth area typically ranges from $15,000 to $25,000 and varies widely depending on the procedures involved and the extent of the operation. For example, a combination of breast lift, augmentation, and tummy tuck will cost more than a Mommy Makeover consisting of a breast augmentation and tummy tuck. 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.

How Long Does It Take to Recover From a Mommy Makeover?

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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Mommy Makeover Surgery

Is it possible to have children after a Mommy Makeover?

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.

Is it safe to combine more than one procedure in a single operation?

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.

What if I have small children at home?

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.
