Tummy Tuck

You will be fine to fly by March, a mommy makeover is basically the procedure you had and after 3 months you will be fine for normal travel.  Consult with your PS before taking the trip.

Flying after Surgery

It depends a lot on the surgery of course.  After more extensive surgery such as yours I would recommend flying be put off for at least 2-3 weeks due to the risk of blood clots in the legs.  So you should be good to go by March.
