A: Wait more than three months after pregnancy for Tummy Tuck

In general, you should wait about three months after your pregnancy to consider an elective procedure such as a tummy tuck. You must also consider where your body weight is after pregnancy, as it may sometimes take longer than three months to return to your pre-pregnancy body weight. Once your weight is stable it is reasonable to consider a tummy tuck procedure. There are no definite time lines for this, but you should certainly consult with a board certified plastic surgeon prior to planning your surgery. Also, be sure that you are not planning to have any more children before having a tummy tuck.
