Yes, it is safe to be pregnant after tummy tuck. Your body (musce, skin, and fatty layer) will stretch to accomadate the baby; therefore, you may need a revision tummy tuck afterwards.

Pregnancy after Tummy Tuck Surgery
Thank you for your question.
Generally, patients are able to have normal pregnancies after tummy tuck surgery. However, I have heard anecdotally from patients and OB/GYN physicians that the abdominal wall can be very tight and that some OB/GYN's recommend earlier delivery if possible. Check with your own OB/GYN for his/her experience in this situation.
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.
Tummy Tuck and Pregnancy
Yes. Having a tummy tuck does not interfere with having a baby. Expect changes to occur with weight gain, stretching of skin and muscle and then weight loss.

Pregnancy after tummy tuck
We do tummy tucks on women who are done with child bearing. The reason is, that future pregnancy will strech out the abdominal wall again. Sometimes people remarry and/ or decide to have more children after a tummy tuck. It is perfectly safe to get pregnant and have a baby. The down side is that you might want to have a tummy tuck later.
