Can I have a tummy tuck twice?

I had a full tumy tuck with lipo last March. After 3 weeks of this procedure I developed an abdominal wound infection, which required me to have surgery again to drain the infection. Now I'm pregnant and am considering to have another tummy tuck with the next 5 years or so. It is possible to have another tummy tuck? What can be the consequences of this procedure being done again?

Is it possible to have a second tummy tuck

Congratulations on your pregnancy! Another tummy tuck is a possibility, if you even need one at all (which you won't know until after the swelling of the pregnancy has subsided). Most doctors would advise holding off on getting another tummy tuck until you are sure you're done having babies.
