Tummy tuck while pregnant
It is quite likely that neither you nor your physician was aware of the pregnancy, and that the procedure was appropriate for your abdominal wall at the time of the surgery. As with any pregnancy, the abdominal wall will stretch, and then recover. Many women have pregnancies after a tummy tuck with no adverse effects on the pregnancy, but some will have a relapse of the laxity and may wind up considering a secondary tightening procedure.
Pregnancy and Tummy Tuck
Congratulations on your pregnancy. Tummy tuck surgery is not done on patients who are known to be pregnant for several reasons. The first reason is the risk of fetal injury or demise related to anesthesia. The second reason is that the cosmetic results of the tummy tuck will be altered by pregnancy. The skin and tissue that were tightened by the tummy tuck will be stretched by pregnancy and will not completely return to the tight result obtained from surgery. In addition, the abdominal wall muscles that were tightened will gradually stretch out as your baby grows. You should be able to deliver by any method your OBGYN feels is safe for you. Remember, you can always redo or "touch up" the results of your tummy tuck in the future. I wish you all the best for a healthy pregnancy!
