Can I Have Children After a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is designed to eliminate stubborn fat and excess skin in the abdomen. When performed by a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon, a tummy tuck can give you a slim toned midsection.

If you are considering expanding your family in the future, you may have concerns about how a tummy tuck could affect your ability to have children. Our experienced plastic surgeons recommend waiting until you finish having children to see optimal results from a tummy tuck procedure. However, that does not mean undergoing this procedure will prevent you from getting pregnant in the future. If you have questions about how a tummy tuck might affect future pregnancies, our expert team at The Centre, P.C. is happy to address your concerns and walk you through your options.

Will A Tummy Tuck Put My Future Pregnancies at Risk?

No, a tummy tuck will not put your future pregnancies at risk. There are no inherent risk factors for pregnancy after having a tummy tuck. Patients who become pregnant after their tummy tuck have an equally high chance of carrying a healthy, full-term pregnancy as women who have not had plastic surgery. However, anyone considering a surgical procedure should express these concerns at their initial consultation where our surgeons will determine if they are an ideal candidate.

Can I Maintain my Tummy Tuck Results After Getting Pregnant?

Those who have had a tummy tuck procedure may wonder how future pregnancies will affect their results. During pregnancy, it is very common for women to experience significant weight gain that leaves behind stretch marks and excess skin. These issues most likely will require surgical correction and revision to restore your initial tummy tuck results.
