Get your pre-pregnancy body back in just one session with a mommy makeover in Thailand. As hard as we may try with a strict diet and exercise regime, it can often virtually impossible to get back in shape after your body has gone through childbirth.
Significant changes after pregnancy, for some, can be noticeable all over the body, particularly the tummy and breast areas; this is why a mommy makeover usually comprises a combination of breast enhancement surgery, tummy tuck and liposuction – although this decision will ultimately be up to you following your surgeon's advice.
The important thing to consider about a mommy makeover is that it involves normally three rounds of surgery, so you’ll have to be prepared to take it very easy afterward as you recover. Thailand is a great destination for rest and relaxation, with stunning beaches, indulgent wellness retreats and luxury resorts. Having said that, you may be restricted to your hotel room (or under the shade by the pool), for a number of days immediately following surgery. Your surgeon will give you advice regarding exactly what you can and can't do.
Thailand also has some of the best medical facilities in the world; it's not considered the number one medical tourism destination for nothing. The Thais seem to think of everything when it comes to making your stay as comfortable as possible, and this is also true of their medical facilities.
There are many new facilities offering a modern, state-of-the-art environment for your healthcare. In fact, some don’t even look like medical clinics – instead resembling boutique hotels and delivering a luxurious experience that many of us just don’t get from our medical services at home.
Everything is designed to provide a truly relaxing patient experience; this means less stress, which will aid in your recovery.
Medical facilities don’t just look the part, but are the real deal. Thailand has a decent amount of Joint Commission International-accredited facilities and was the first country in Asia to be awarded accredited status.
Sadly, not every clinic and hospital in the country is on par with what you'd expect at home. With Medical Departures, you can be confident when searching for a reliable clinic and surgeon, as we perform background checks on criminal and dental records, as well as confirming the qualifications, professional memberships and experience of our doctors. You can - and should - check out our real patient reviews and our clinic photos and virtual tours, giving you the opportunity to look before you book.
The cost is another important factor for most patients who travel to Thailand for a mommy makeover – and with savings of around 60% it’s definitely worth the trip for most people.
