Get your pre-pregnancy body back with a mommy makeover in Bangkok. With excellent healthcare facilities and quality-checked surgeons, the Thai capital is one of the world’s leading cosmetic surgery centers for your yummy mummy transformation.
Discover what this transformative cosmetic surgery involves and how you can save up to 70% when booking with Medical Departures.
The Mommy Makeover actually includes a number of procedures to target various areas of your body you are unhappy with. It is tailored to your specific needs but does include a number of surgical procedures. For this reason, it is considered to be major surgery, but it does only have one recovery time, which for some is preferable than having multiple surgeries and associated downtimes.
The surgery can comprise a combination of any of the following procedures:
Breast lift, breast augmentation and/or breast reduction
It is, therefore, a procedure that varies from patient to patient, depending on what areas are particularly bothersome to them, and so there is no set time of how long it will take. Your surgeon will be able to give you a better idea.

Firstly, you do need to be in good health, have a good mental attitude and realistic expectations as to what this surgery can achieve.
If you are unhappy with a saggy tummy, stretch marks, the shape of your breasts or pockets of stubborn fat that refuse to budge (even after diet and exercise), then a mommy makeover is one way of fixing all those irritations in one go.
It is worth bearing in mind that as this treatment involves several combined procedures, you will experience discomfort all over your body, and you should be prepared to look after yourself, take it easy and closely follow your surgeon’s instructions.
You may feel apprehensive about having such extensive surgery abroad, but Bangkok really is one of the best places to go. It has facilities that are modern, hygienic and high-tech, as well as having the personnel and systems in place to make your whole experience run smoothly.
Bangkok has internationally accredited hospitals, as well as doctors whose training and qualifications are on par with their counterparts in the West. Very often, many of them have taken specialist training overseas, for example, in the United States, Europe, Australia or Japan.
Cost is, of course, one of the primary reasons people choose to have surgery in Bangkok. For mommy makeover surgery there is no doubt that patients can save thousands, even taking into consideration the expense of a holiday.
However, cost should not be the only reason for choosing a surgeon or a destination; look, instead, at all your options, and examine the pros and cons for each, from making the decision you want surgery, to realizing your expectations and finding an experienced, reliable surgeon.
At Medical Departures, we know from personal experience that there are many, many excellent surgeons in Bangkok, but it’s not so easy trying to find out who they are. How does one with no medical background go about ensuring their prospective surgeon has the right credentials? Searching online can bring up clinic and hospital websites with little to no useful information—and the ones that do sign their own praises can’t necessarily be trusted.
Our quality-checks are designed to give you more information so you can make your own choice. For instance, we:
Pre-check legal and criminal records
Confirm qualifications professional memberships
Collate and publish real patient testimonials and high-definition clinic photos.
Carry onsite visits
These screening processes and publication of useful information allows you to choose your surgeon with confidence and feel at ease with your choice.

One of the plus sides here is that with only one procedure, you only have one recovery time. This can be a real bonus for busy moms who cannot afford to take too much time off. The downside to this, of course, is that you will effectively be recovering from several different procedures—which certainly won’t be too much fun over the following weeks.
The week following surgery you can expect to be sore and stiff. However, during weeks two and three you will be much improved and able to undertake some everyday activities. It may be a few weeks before you return to work and heavy lifting (even lifting up your children) will be out of the question for six weeks until you have healed sufficiently.
Always consult with your chosen surgeon in Bangkok as to how long you’ll need to stay in Thailand. This time differs depending on which surgeries you have.
On average, the cost of a full mommy makeover in Bangkok is around AUD $12,000 compared to AUD $23,000 in Australia. [Please note: these prices are approximate estimates based on international data, calculated at the time of writing.]
