NO,  BAD IDEA !

Use of any heating device is both dangerous and will at the least increase swelling and at the worst will burn your skin and perhaps cause ares to of skin to slough (die).

3 weeks after tummy tuck is too early for infrared saune or any heat, you can burn the skin . Your skin is still sensitive to heat. Check with your plastic surgeon.
