Every mom knows the unspoken trade-offs of motherhood: the stretch marks, the altered body shape, and the countless other physical changes endured out of love. While many wear these marks as badges of honor, there’s often a longing for their pre-baby bodies. Take Kristin, for instance. A dedicated mother of two, Kristin remembers the frustration of failing to shake off the physical reminders of her pregnancies despite her best efforts at the gym and careful eating. No matter what she did, the deflated breasts and stubborn belly overhang defied her, a testament to her devotion but also a silent thief to her confidence and self-image. Then, she met Nashville’s Gentleman Surgeon, Dr. Michael R. Burgdorf.

Kristin’s journey began with a comprehensive consultation at Dr. Burgdorf’s 12,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art clinic and surgical center, where she was introduced to the concept of the Mommy Makeover. This bespoke package, designed to restore a woman’s body post-pregnancy, often combines breast augmentation or a breast lift (mastopexy) with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction and even labiaplasty. 

For Kristin, the Mommy Makeover started with a tasteful breast lift with conservative augmentation, utilizing the latest in breast implant technology. She also got a tummy tuck complemented by Vaser Liposuction and MicroAire Liposuction techniques. Dr. Burgdorf, known for his meticulous approach and innovative technologies like Renuvion and Galaflex, assured Kristin of natural-looking results that align with the “Nashville Natural” aesthetic.

Dr. Burgdorf’s authority and expertise are not just rooted in his technical skills but also in his deep understanding and empathy for his patients. “Moms are truly special. They sacrifice everything for their children, including their bodies,” Dr. Burgdorf shares, echoing the sentiments found in his #1 Amazon Best Selling Book, The Mommy Makeover: Restoring Your Body After Childbirth. Having witnessed the journey of motherhood through his wife and his deep respect for his own mother, Dr. Burgdorf lives to help women reclaim their bodies and, by extension, a part of themselves.

“After all the sacrifices she (a mom) makes in her life for her family, she deserves something for herself,” he asserts. “To be a part of that change is awesome.” Understanding the costs of plastic surgery and the downtime of a Mommy Makeover are critical concerns for many women. Dr. Burgdorf addresses these transparently, ensuring his patients are well-informed and comfortable with their decisions. Kristin, like many before her, found solace in the clarity and honesty Dr. Burgdorf provided. The investments in herself were not just financial but also an investment in her well-being and self-confidence.

Post-surgery, Kristin’s transformation was remarkable. Not just in the physical changes that were evident—a more youthful breast profile thanks to the boob job and mastopexy and a firmer, flatter abdomen courtesy of the tummy tuck and liposuction—but in her renewed spirit. “Kristin was one of the happiest patients I have ever had,” Dr. Burgdorf reflects. “When I saw her in a follow-up visit, she had a new confidence and new vibrancy. Her self-image soared.”
