Anatomy of a mommy makeover
01/ Breast Augmentation
Your breast will be lifted and augmented.
Breast augmentations or “boob jobs” have become popular in Thailand and across the world. These procedures involve inserting breast implants which will enlarge the size of your breast or/and change the shape.
04/ Tummy Tuck
Your stomache will be lifted and tightened.
With tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, you will slim up your stomach and tighten the skin around the weight loss. Afterwards the remaining streachmarks will be treated topically over a period of several months.
Your vagina will be tightned and shaped.
A labiaplasty is surgery to reduce the size of the labia minora and the flaps of skin on either side of the vaginal opening. It will return to vagina to its former shape and size.
Removal of excess fat from both thighs and stomach.
Liposuction is applied to remove fat deposits that can be hard to get rid of with regular diet and exercise after a pregnancy. During a mommy makeover this is usually applied to both stomach and thighs.

Why get a mommy makeover?
During pregnancy, the abdomen stretches to accommodate the growing baby. It’s also common for the breasts to enlarge, sometimes gaining an entire cup size or more.
Once the baby arrives, the body bounces back, but the abdominal muscles, tissues, and skin may feel looser or weaker due to stretching.
While exercise and physical therapy are highly effective to help new mothers heal and return to their pre-baby shape, it may not be enough to correct sagging completely. That’s why a Mommy Makeover is an ideal solution to permanently correct these areas.
How much does a mommy makeover cost in Thailand?
The cost of a Mommy makeover in Thailand is between 160,000 to 300,000 baht ($5,400 - $11,000) making it a more affordable option than in most Western countries. But also remember that this is a combination of procedures, so the cost will vary from person to person.
What are the risks of a mommy makeover?
If you’re considering getting a Mommy Makeover in Thailand, here are some important things to note about the procedure.
1. Your length of time spent in the hospital will depend on your procedure, but if needed many hospitals in Thailand provide the option to stay overnight. Recovery time is one to two weeks depending on the types of procedures that have been done.
2. During the recovery period it is normal to experience bruising, swelling, and soreness.
3. Will your family/child/children be with you in Thailand? Plan to have assistance, as you will need help to carry on with regular routines and activities as you rest and recover.
4. You will probably be prescribed pain medication that may alter your focus, so no driving is allowed!
5. Everybody is different, but swelling can last longer than six months. A full assessment cannot be made until the swelling has completely subsided.
6. No heavy lifting (including carrying a child over 10 lbs) or intense exercise for at least six weeks after the procedure.
7. Smokers should stop smoking at least four weeks before the procedure and four weeks after the procedure. Smoking decreases blood circulation, delays healing, and increases the risk of serious complications.
8. For the best results, plan to stick to a healthy diet and exercise routine after you’ve healed.
