Mommy Makeover in Kuala Lumpur

The Ultimate Guide to Mommy Makeover in Kuala Lumpur

Last fact-checked: 14 December 2020

A Mommy Makeover in Kuala Lumpur enables you to rediscover your slim and trim figure after childbirth.

Not so long ago, this combination of cosmetic surgeries was normally only associated with celebrities and women in the public eye; while women have always wanted to look and feel their best, it's only recently that a Mommy Makeover has become a more viable option thanks to affordable prices now available around the world. 

What Does a Mommy Makeover Involve - And Is it for Me?

A full Mommy Makeover normally involves several cosmetic surgeries all carried out in one session, depending on your body type and what you wish to achieve. You may have stretched skin across your abdomen, your breasts may have become larger or smaller or even deflated, or you may want to firm up your bum.

For example, the procedure may include:

  • Breast reduction
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction where required (for example, thighs, arms, butt)

A Mommy Makeover should only be sought if you have finished having kids for this lifetime. It makes sense to have the surgery if you don’t want to have a matronly figure for the rest of your life, especially since exercise and diet can only do so much post-childbirth. For slim patients, this treatment can target sagging and stretched skin that you wish to remove.

Why Consider a Mommy Makeover in Kuala Lumpur?

Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, is well worth a visit in its own right and has become one of the leading tourist destinations in Southeast Asia. Visitors can expect museums, wildlife attractions, the incredible Petronas Towers, superb shopping options, delicious street food, temples and pulsating nightlife.

These should all be on your list of things to do before your Mommy Makeover; after, you'll need to spend time recovering in and around the comfort of your hotel room before flying home.

KL, as it's known for short, is also a great medical tourism destination with modern hospitals and clinics, well-qualified doctors and state-of-the-art amenities. As it is a tropical country, most places are air-conditioned and you won't have any problems getting around the city since it boasts excellent public transport in the form of tourist buses, trains, a monorail system and taxis.

Why Book My Mommy Makeover Procedure Using Medical Departures?

Because you are electing multiple procedures with a Mommy Makeover, it goes without saying that you want only the best possible care available in Kuala Lumpur, preferably at a clinic or hospital that has affiliations with an internationally recognized body, such as the Joint Commission International

When you book through Medical Departures, you can be confident knowing that we only list reputable, quality-checked facilities on our site. We always conduct our own investigations on the qualifications, training, experience and accreditations of the doctors and other staff. We also conduct on-site visits and past patient interviews. 

How Long Does a Mommy Makeover Take? What Is the Recovery Period?

The length of this surgery depends on how much work is required. You will need to first consult with your surgeon, who will assess your present condition and goals, then recommend a treatment plan.

For example, you may need only a tummy tuck if the rest of your body is fine; or you may want a breast reduction or lift or augmentation using implants. Or your surgeon may feel that multiple procedures carried out simultaneously is the best course of action. In this case, the surgery will take five hours or more and you may have different surgical teams simultaneously working on your body.

Following surgery, you will experience pain and discomfort; however, it is worth remembering this is a one-time procedure—once your recovery is out of the way, many patients find it has been worth the alternative of undergoing each procedure separately. 

The initial recovery period can take as long as two weeks as bruising takes time to settle down. You should be able to carry out light activities after the first week. A full recovery can take several months, depending on the complexity of your surgery. 

What Is the Cost of a Mommy Makeover in Kuala Lumpur?

Depending on the amount of work needed and which facility you choose, you can expect to make savings of between 50% and 70% in Kuala Lumpur. This should equate to savings of several thousand dollars compared to surgery back home. For instance, a Mommy Makeover in Australia can set you back as much as AUD 25,000.
