Pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and just the natural aging process all takes its toll on your body. If you want to look the way you did before becoming a mother, then a Mommy Makeover in Malaysia is a great solution for savvy patients looking to keep costs down.
If you are seeking an affordable, high-quality alternative to the high prices as home, you may wish to consider joining the thousands of women heading to Malaysia each year for surgeries like this. Keep reading this concise Medical Departures guide to Mommy Makeovers.
First things first: it's always a good idea to finish having all the babies that you want, even if they are several years apart, before choosing a Mommy Makeover. This is because you don’t want to have repeated surgical procedures for the conditions associated with childbirth.
Typically, new mothers do try and get back into shape as soon as they can, following a strict diet and exercise regimen to lose weight and regain toned muscles. However, loose skin and flab can be difficult to dislodge. You can have a complete or partial Mommy Makeover that consists but is not limited to:
More than ever before, the emphasis is on looking young and feeling young; and why not? Just because you have babies and are a mother, you need not look matronly. A Mommy Makeover will not only make you look good but also boost your self-esteem.
As with any other major surgery, cosmetic surgery has its own risk and possibility of complications. You have no doubt read many of the horror stories on the net about botched surgeries and worse.
When you book through Medical Departures, you can be sure that we have carried out checks before listing clinics and hospitals on our website. We establish a personal interaction with clinic staff; investigate doctors' qualifications and facility accreditations, the amenities at the hospital, international services offered, and other criteria. We conduct post-surgery patient interviews and never list clinics that don’t meet our high standards on our website.
Plastic surgery is an expensive procedure and, if you already have kids to take care of, you probably don't want to take on extra expenses. Having the procedure performed in Malaysia means you'll be paying far less without having to compromise on quality either as doctors in Malaysia's best clinics and hospitals are well-qualified and certified (locally and internationally).
Plus, you can choose to combine a holiday in Malaysia along with your surgery. Recuperate in a relaxing hotel or resort and be away from the responsibilities of family and house, while getting well looked after during your recovery. For those who wish a pre-op getaway, Malaysia is also a popular holiday destination with great climate, food and dining options, shopping, entertainment, affordable luxury lodgings and more.
If you have all three procedures together, the surgery can take as long as seven hours. If elect only one component, then surgery can be completed in an hour or two. However, if you opt for more than one procedure, it makes sense to combine the surgeries as you will be under anesthesia once and won't need multiple surgeries and recovery periods, so there will be less downtime involved. You may spend a night or two in the hospital.
You can plan on at least two weeks' downtime for a Mommy Makeover. You will be in discomfort, have to wear special garments and take antibiotics and painkillers. Full recovery can take up to eight weeks. On the flip side, you may look even better and younger than you had before your pregnancies; with all surgeries combined, you need only to endure one, albeit longer recovery period.
The cost of a Mommy Makeover will vary according to the procedures you are seeking. For example, in Australia, you can pay between AUD 10,000 and AUD 25,000 for this kind of extensive surgery. In Malaysia, you will pay a fraction of the amount, with savings of at least 50% to be had.
