What you need to know about Mommy Makeover in Bangkok

The Mommy Makeover has become a term used for the combination of breast augmentation or uplift and tummy tuck and is often performed in the years following childbirth. It has been widely adopted in the US and its popularity increases year on year throughout the rest of the world - Bangkok is an ever-popular destination for the mommy makeover now.

With the procedure consisting of breast augmentation and tummy tuck - the combined surgical operation is performed under a general anesthetic and will take between 2-3 hours. Those opting for the mini tummy tuck may be able to leave the hospital on the same day, whereas a full tummy tuck will require at least an overnight stay in hospital.

As the breasts and abdomen are the primary areas of change with motherhood, a mommy makeover will often center on a breast and abdomen procedure. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts will also enlarge, increasing as much as a one cup size or more. However, returning back to 'normal' can mean a significant loss in breast volume and noticeable sagging. Throughout a pregnancy, the abdominal muscles, skin, and tissues stretch to safely accommodate the growing baby. Unfortunately, after childbirth, these layers may not bounce back to their taut, pre-baby shape.

The Procedure

As the mommy makeover consists of multiple different surgeries, each case is unique but generally, the procedure begins with anesthetizing the patient - general anesthesia is used. The rest of the procedure is briefly described below:

  • Tummy tuck: in this, a small incision is given at your pubic bone. Muscles of your stomach are tightened at this point. Excessive fat is removed through liposuction. Loose skin is excised. There various types of a tummy tuck. Which one should be chosen is decided in accordance with the laxity of your muscles. Some require small incisions; hence, fewer scars. While others need a relatively larger incision. After the procedure, the incision is stitched and bandages are applied over it.
  • Breast lift: in this surgery, an incision is given around your areola which extends downwards and horizontally. loose breast tissue is removed to lift them up. Sometimes, nipple and areola are shifted to a higher level. In this way, your bust is restored and given a more rounded contour. Incisions are sewn and the wound is bandaged.  
  • Breast augmentation: an incision is given around your areola and Silicone implants are inserted into your breasts to increase the size. Nipple-areola complex (NAC) is preserved during the procedure so that your lactational ability is not affected. Stitches are given and bandaging is applied.
  • Stretch marks removal: a sudden stretch of the skin due to pregnancy and then sudden loosening after delivery causes the collagen in your dermis to breakdown leaving stretch marks on your skin. Proper moisturization can reduce stretching. Laser treatment is available to fade away stretch marks.

However, patients don't have to stop there; a mommy makeover can also include a thigh lift, arm lift, Butt lift or Brazilian butt lift. Depending on the individual surgeon and the recommended set of procedures, a mommy makeover can be performed during one single operation, or for safety reasons, may be spread out over multiple surgical sessions.

Length of Stay in Bangkok

Still, you have to stay in Bangkok for at least 10-14 days for regular check-ups. During this time, your physical condition is closely monitored and your stitches are removed after 10 days, at which point you're free to travel home.

Recovery Time
