Timing for a Tummy Tuck
I think you should give it at least 3 months. You will be much happier. You will not be back to full activity at 5 weeks.
Timing and tummy tuck
You are certainly cutting it close.It appears you need major muscle plication which requires no heavy lifting for about two months.
Recovery time for intimate relations after tummy tuck
Thank you for your question and photograph. As others have stated 5 weeks after he tummy Tuck is too soon to expect to feel normal about intimate relations after a tummy tuck.I would suggest waiting until after your marriage before having surgery or delaying her wedding to 3 months

Tummy Tuck and Healing before marriage
Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials. You may wish to delay your surgery until after your wedding so you do not have the stress and complexities of a wedding on top of the stress of surgery.
Tummy Tuck Before Wedding
In short, you would be best to postpone the tummy tuck until you have more recovery time available. Although it is possible for you to be recovered enough by 5 weeks, it is unlikely that this will be the case. Should you have any healing setbacks following surgery, it would be a shame for it to affect you wedding or honeymoon. Best wishes.
I would wait
you are certainly cutting it close. i would recommend at least 2 months before someone getting married has a TT. you certainly may be fine but problems, even minor ones, can always occur. if you have already done it, i would just relax and hope for the best.
good luck with your wedding. that is far more dangerous than a TT:)
Tummy Tuck and Marriage-Timing?
First, congratulations on your pending marriage. All of the doctors on RealSelf wish you a wonderful day and many years of happiness. That being said, your plans for having a tummy tuck five weeks before your big day is truly cutting it close. Even without any complications, you will be limited on some activities. Of course, a complication may even force you to postpone your wedding day.
I would recommend rescheduling your surgery until sometime after your wedding just to be on the safe side.
Again, here's to a wonderful and happy life together.
I would hold off on the surgery if you are planning a major holiday.
Thank you for the question. I think that you may not be fully recovered if you are planning a holiday and lots of activities at five weeks post op. If you are having a small wedding and not travelling immediately after and you can limit some of the activities until 6 weeks post op than you should be OK. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding.

From the posted photo a the severe time limitations I would delay the surgery but not the marriage. Best of luck and much happiness.
Tummy tuck and wedding
I agree that you should wait and enjoy being a newly wed before having surgery. Make it a joint decision with you husband. Good Luck !
