I Had a C Section in 2007, a Second One in 2010, then I Had a Tummy Tuck in December 2012, Six Months Later I'm Pregnant Again.

Is it a risk that the baby cant grow correctly? Is it a risk another c section?

Pregnancy after Tummy Tuck?

+1

Congratulations on your pregnancy.

Obviously, it will be best for you to check with your OB/GYN regarding your specific situation. .

Generally speaking, patients are able to have normal pregnancies after tummy tuck surgery.  C-section surgery should not be significantly more “risky” for a well experienced OB/GYN physician.
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.

Best wishes for a smooth pregnancy.
