Mommy make over

I am sure you are healed by now so doing surgery will be safe. Judging from your photograph you should have a great result.

Being that far out from your procedure without any mention of problems, then you should be fine to proceed with your cosmetic procedure. It is always best to let your prior surgeon know of your plans to see if there are any concerns, and also there may be some recommendations of how to best protect that area from strain during/after cosmetic surgery.

Timing of mommy make over

You are 9 months after your lumbar fusion. You should be fine to have the mommy make-over in December - if this is the only concern. Best wishes.

I would get clearance from your spine surgeon. Additionally, I would recommend a short scar tummy tuck rather than a minitummy tuck based upon your picture.

Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of mommy makeovers each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
