Tummy tuck after childbirth
I generally recommend that post partum patients wait until 6 months after giving birth before abdominoplasty in order to allow their bodies to recuperate from the physical stress of pregnancy and delivery. This is especially important given the length of the procedure and anesthesia. Great that you've lost the weight so quickly.
Before surgery comes the consultation. In order for your plastic surgeon to provide a sound surgical plan you must be at or near the weight you'd like to be. For most won=men that would take several months. if you get there in 2 months that's great. But, then comes the time to schedule surgery. Good plastic surgeons have busy surgical schedules. You can expect a wait of six to twelve weeks depending on the surgeon and the procedure.

Tummy tuck weeks after c-section
Yes, you can have a tummy tuck at this time esp if you have gotten back to your weight. In fact, I have performed a modified tummy tuck at the time of a C-section. You have a lot of loose skin which I would remove and tighten the muscles which are partially causing the bulging. I am offering a temporary price reduction on all cosmetic surgery with excellent financing. Watch my videos!
