Gentle Sex after Tummy Tuck?
Depending on how you define “gentle sex” and whether or not there is any contamination of incision lines etc., you should be okay. As always, as with any specific activity, best to check with your plastic surgeon.
Sexual intercourse after tummy tuck
Any activity that increases your heart rate or blood pressure or that makes you out of breath has the potential to cause swelling and bleeding, which could compromise your result. Also, any unexpected movement could undo the tightening effect from the muscle sutures. It's best to listen to your surgeon's recommendations and invest a few weeks so that you can have the result you want in the long run.
