Can An Abdomen Be Recovered after Pregnancy?
If there is not diastasis of the muscle or loose skin, the area of fat can be removed with exercise.

Congrats on the new addition. Only time and exercise will tell you if you can get your tummy flat without surgery. Good luck.

Pregnancy 8 years after a tummy tuck is always taking a chance. Still, it will be hard to know how things will sort themselves out until you give yourself a chance to achieve your prepregnancy weight and get back into exercise. Best luck.

Its best to re-establish an ideal body weight following pregnancy prior to contemplating another tummy tuck. Once at your goal weight; you will determine if additional skin tightening is needed. I recommend you see a board certified plastic surgeon for an examination. During your consult, discuss if your muscles and skin need to be re-tightened. If only skin needs tightening clarify the differences between what your surgeon defines as a mini-abdominoplasty versus full abdominoplasty.
Flat abdomen with just exercise?
Hard to answer without a photo. There is nothing to lose by trying, and then seeking consultation if that fails to accomplish your goals.
If the skin is lax, there is little chance of improvement. If the muscles are apart, surgery is more likely to be needed.
A visit to your surgeon and an exam will give you a more useful response than any you will get online.
Thanks for your question, best wishes.

You may have a recurrent diastasis recti, which can be addressed surgically. You may also have fat that is making up part of the contour irregularity. this can be helped by exercise. Where your soft tissue meets the scar may be able to be helped by diet & exercise, or possibly surgery. Best to see your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and together you will make a plan.
