Watch: Christchurch woman returns home after 'mummy makeover' in Thailand

Last year, Seven Sharp met a Christchurch woman who was heading to Thailand for a plastic surgery "mummy makeover".

The procedure involves nipping and tucking areas of a woman's body affected by pregnancy.

Kacey Louise returned home over the weekend after a roller-coaster of an experience at a Bangkok hospital.

"After surgery, I was like, 'What the heck have I done?'" she told TVNZ1's Seven Sharp. "I was too scared to look. I looked at my boobs and I was like, 'Yeah, mean'.

"The anaesthetic that they give you makes you very emotional, so generally about day four or five everyone has a meltdown."

Once the pain and medication had worn off, was the "mummy makeover" worth it for the Christchurch mum?

She said it was and that the procedure has been a huge boost to her self-esteem.

She offered some advice for other mums looking at taking the plunge.

"Make sure it's for you and not for someone else," she said. "Make sure it's legit for you."
