On the other hand, it almost always involves extraction of fat deposits from different areas of the trunk with conventional suction techniques, or the use of adjuvant technologies such as VASER, retraction, etc. Very frequently, abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is also required, from short scars to very extended towards the back.


Recovery time after a Mommy Makeover can vary depending on the procedures performed. Most patients need at least two weeks to recover properly.
