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 Fort Worth, Plano, Frisco, Southlake, and other cities near Grapevine, TX, Dr. Michael Bogdan is among the top choices of moms looking for an experienced and talented board-certified plastic surgeon.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Because pregnancy and breastfeeding change the shape of the breasts and the abdomen, many women end up with lax skin, a tummy bulge, stretched-out breasts and nipples, and pockets of fat. Mommy Makeover surgery addresses these concerns in a single operation that combines multiple procedures, typically breast enhancement and body contouring. During your Mommy Makeover consultation, Dr. Bogdan will talk with you about your concerns and cosmetic goals and create a customized surgical plan that includes the procedures that can create the results you want. He is a Mommy Makeover specialist who has performed thousands of breast enhancement and body contouring procedures during his career.
What’s Included in a Mommy Makeover?
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.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost in the Forth Worth Area?
The cost of a Mommy Makeover in the 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, breast augmentation, and tummy tuck will cost more than a Mommy Makeover consisting of breast augmentation and a 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.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Mommy Makeover Surgery
Is Mommy Makeover surgery worth it?
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. However, 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.
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.
Are Mommy Makeovers just for women who’ve had children?
No. Mommy Makeovers can be personalized to the unique needs of any woman who wants to enhance her breasts and body with a single surgery and recovery period.
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.
How long does a Mommy Makeover surgery take?
Typical surgical times for the Mommy Makeover operation range from 4 to 6 hours. Dr. Bogdan is always mindful of surgical time to ensure patient safety.
Is Mommy Makeover surgery painful?
Understandably, having multiple surgical sites involves more discomfort than a single site. While pain experiences vary between patients, the tummy tuck is generally the most challenging right after surgery. Dr. Bogdan prescribes pain medication, which most patients take for at least 3 days and are off within 5 to 10 days. After recovery, nearly all Mommy Makeover patients say the results are worth the discomfort they went through.
Can you finance Mommy Makeover surgery?
Yes. Qualified patients can take advantage of our financing options to attain the improvements they envision without a long delay.
How much weight do you lose with a Mommy Makeover?
Weight loss is not the goal of Mommy Makeover surgery; in fact, Dr. Bogdan recommends you reach your realistic, maintainable goal weight before having body contouring surgery. Many patients do, however, drop 2 to 3 clothing sizes after the surgery because they no longer have excess, lax skin around their midsections.
