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.
It is not sage to do any kind of tattoo but I respect to everybody opinion, it may be transmitted an infection by this tattoo. Dr. Navarro
