Can I Get a Tattoo Before Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Possible but if you get an infection, then surgery will need to be postponed
Having said that, however, if it's on your wrist and it's small, then it might be okay. But keep in mind that your surgery may be postponed if you suffer from a complication related to getting the tattoo.
The best thing you should do is to ask your surgeon about this. Best of luck!
Getting a Tattoo Before Tummy tuck Surgery
Thank you for your question. If you were my patient, I would ask that you wait on getting the tattoo because there is a risk of getting an infection and if that happens, your tummy tuck surgery would need to be postponed.
Never Rush Into A Decision For Cosmetic Change
Both tatoos and tummy tucks are decisions with long term implications, hopefully good implications. If you have decided to have a tummy tiuck, focus on that and wait a while on the tatoo. Make sure your decision is not impulse driven. You can get it later if it still feels right.
