BBL after tummy tuck

I think you need to heal from the tummy tuck first, This may take 3-6 months for the majority of the swelling to subside. Good luck.

I recommend waiting at least 3 months to my patients as long as you have no issues with their prior surgery and no major health issues.

Good afternoon,

In my professional opinion I suggest you wait 3 months after your tummy tuck in order for you to be completely healed and your energy fully restored. Make sure you see a board certified plastic surgeon.
