Pregnancy after Tummy Tuck?
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.
