I had a tummy tuck 3 years ago and am pregnant again. Can I have another tummy tuck after this baby? What should I do now to keep the damages to a minimum?
Second tummy tuck after childbirth
It is certainly possible to have a second tummy tuck if it is needed.
Women who limit their weight gain often find that a second tummy tuck is not needed, and their first tummy tuck holds up well.
Obviously make sure you are done with children before contemplating a tummy tuck otherwise you might be asking whether a third tummy tuck is possible.
Second tummy tuck possible
A second tummy tuck is certainly possible. There is no reason to be concerned about your eventual abdominal contour as this can be addressed when the time is right.
Your focus now should be on eating right and taking care of yourself and your developing baby. Follow your obstetricians recommendations and have a beautiful healthy baby.
See your plastic surgeon 6 months after your delivery to begin evaluating your abdomial contour and discussing your contouring options. You may be pleasantly surprised. If not there is a solution to your problem so rest easy and enjoy the experience.
All the best.
Secondary tummy tuck
You can have a second tummy tuck although your surgeon should customize the procedure to your particular situation. There are many variations of tummy tucks so what you had the first time might or might not be similar to this time around. Also, depending on what your options are, the operative report from the first tummy tuck might be important especially as concerns how the umbilicus or belly button is handled.
In general, each change in your body, whether it is from pregnancy or weight shifts, should require a careful assessment of your current anatomy.

This question is really one for an in person evaluation, not over the internet. At the in person consult you will be examined and evaluated if you have enough skin, tissue to preform the excision and closure again.

Second tummy tuck possible
It will be possible to have a second tummy tuck, however the fact that you are pregnant again does not indicates that you will need one after your pregnancy. You have to wait until months after delivery to know the damage this pregnancy caused to your prior muscle repair and your abdominal skin.
To answer your second question, be sure to follow a good diet and pregnancy checks, and be sure to keep a good moisturizing lotion on your abdomen at all times.
Second Tummy Tuck
Congrats! Yes, you can have a second tummy tuck. 3-6 months after you deliver you should visit with your plastic surgeon to see if you require a second tummy tuck. The only response I have to keeping the damages to a minimal would be to follow the advice of your OB-GYN concerning appropriate weight gain.
Repeat Tummy Tuck is possible if you experience pregnancy following your first tummy tuck
While the details of the procedure may be different than your first operation, a second body contouring procedure should help restore your body to your desired contour.
Once your baby is delivered, you have lost your "baby weight", and you are no longer breast feeding, pay a visit to your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an evaluation.
