It is absolutely safe to have a tummy tuck a month after Botox.  Please let your plastic surgeon know about all of your previous procedures and best of luck with your surgery.

Hi! There is no problem with you having a tummy tuck one month after Botox. Please let the board-certified plastic surgeon performing the surgery know that you had a Botox treatment a month ago though. Enjoy the tummy tuck procedure!

Tummy tuck after Botox?

The Botox you had placed one month ago will not affect any surgical procedure, including your tummy tuck. It remains localized in the muscle of your forehead, and will not affect the rest of your body. Best of luck withyour tummy tuck. Jeff Rockmore

Absolutely. There will be no negative impact on your tummy tuck because you got Botox the month before.

Botox is injected day 1 and leaves your system 24 hours later. However, it takes 10 day for the chemical reaction in your muscle to take effect and weaken the muscle. We tell our female patients they can get pregnant 48 hours after receiving their Botox injection.

Your Botox will not have any side effects with your tummy tuck procedure 1 month later. Once the Botox is done you can do just about anything even the next day.

Botox injections can be performed at the same time as a tummy tuck

+1
Botox injections have no side effects that would compromise a tummy tuck surgery.  In fact, botox injections can be performed at the same time one is having a tummy tuck or other body surgical procedure (liposuction, breast augmentation, lift or reduction).  Best wishes.
