Yes, you can have a tummy tuck after Lap-Band surgery.  We recommend waiting until your weight loss has stabilized and to use a plastic surgeon familiar with Lap-Band surgery.  Many times during the tummy tuck I change the prot to a low profile and port and sometimes bury it under the muscles so there is no bulge from the port as well.
