Minimum age for most cosmetic plastic surgery is 18. Ideally you should not be planning to have any more children after a tummy tuck as this may compromise your outcome. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for an exam and a comprehensive explanation of your options.

There is no age factor when it comes to having a tummy tuck but it is very rare for someone under the age of 18 to need one.  It doesn't mean there are no exceptions.  It would depend on the circumstances.  Not knowing how old you are and why you are asking this question, makes it harder to answer.  Best advise I can give you is to get a consultation.
