Thank you for your question. Yes, a tummy tuck stays superficial to the deep part of the pubic bone and typically would not interfere with a Urethral Sling. To be sure you can have a tummy tuck, see two or more board-certified plastic surgeons in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery. I hope this helps.
I Had a Urethral Sling a Year Ago. Will a Tummy Tuck Damage That Surgery?

Tummy tuck should not damage your sling procedure
Your urethral sling procedure attaches deeper on the pubic bone, well out of harms way from a tummy tuck procedure. Your suspension should be OK.
Best of luck,
Tummy tuck has no impact on a urethral sling
