I just had a tummy tuck three weeks ago. I am breast feeding. I'm reading here that tummy tucks should not be done until after breast feeding and nursing is impossible after one. Why is this?
Why Do Some of the Experts Here Say Nursing is Impossible After a Tummy Tuck?

Nursing after tummy tuck
Nursing is possible after tummy tuck
We cannot figure this one out, but what tummy tuck would do to prevent breast feeding is beyond us. You should pump for a short time after general anesthesia until the drugs are through your system and out of the breast milk.
