Babies after Tummy Tuck Surgery?
Thank you for the question.
Generally speaking, patients are able to have normal pregnancies after tummy tuck surgery. Depending on the weight gain/loss, changes in skin elasticity, genetics etc. revisionary surgery may be necessary after the pregnancy. This is a situation where only time will tell.
The “ideal” patient for tummy tuck surgery is one who has completed pregnancies, is psycho socially/emotionally/financially stable, has an excellent social support system surrounding him/her, is capable of arranging enough recovery time and who has reached a long-term stable weight.
I hope this helps.
Babies After Tummy Tuck
In general, I would recommend a tummy tuck for patients after they have finished with pregnancies. However, if there will be a gap in the pregnancies, then a tummy tuck is not unreasonable. A tummy tuck may have to be revised given the dynamics of future pregnancy. The ability to get pregnant and maintain pregnancy should not be affected by a properly performed tummy tuck.

You can have children after a tummy tuck. I would highly recommend waiting until you have had your children and do not plan on having any more. Your best result is when you are at your goal weight and are finished having your children.
Can I Get Pregnant After a Tummy Tuck?
Yes you can. But if that is your plan you may rather wait until you have completed your family before having the tummy tuck.
A pregnancy will stretch your abdominal tissues, and if they don't shrink back down sufficiently, you may be facing another surgery for revision or a whole new TT
Muscle Separation with Tummy Tuck
With pregnacy, your abdominal wall stretches to accomodate the growing baby-- That includes the muscles, the skin and even the belly button. The goal of a tummy tuck is to tighten the abdominal and repair the changes that occurred during the pregnancy. Becuase of this-- and for your investment in time, recovery and of course money- it is advisable to wait until you have completed having babies before undergoing a tummy tuck procedure.

Of course you can have babies after a Tummy Tuck. It is best to have your family prior to this surgery. Otherwise, you will need to have the surgery again.

You can certainly get pregnant after a tummy tuck. However, the muscles and skin that were tightened will be stretched out again. For that reason, you are best off waiting until you are sure you are not going to have any more children. Best of luck.
Pregnancy after tummy tuck
There is nothing about the tummy tuck procedure that prevents pregnancy. However, pregnancy will probably stretch out the skin and muscles that were tightened with the tummy tuck and may leave you right where you were before the tummy tuck. So it is advisable to finish having your family before the tummy tuck. I hope this provides you with the information you need.
