A tummy tuck is one of the most effective ways to achieve a more toned, flat stomach. When performed on a good candidate, a tummy tuck can achieve dramatic body sculpting results. However, there are several factors you should consider before deciding to move forward with the procedure. One of these is future pregnancy plans.
Your tummy tuck procedure will not impact your ability to become pregnant at a later date, and it won’t jeopardize the health of your or your baby. But future pregnancies will stretch the muscles of your abdominal wall as well as the skin in this region. In most instances, this will negatively impact the results you achieved during your procedure.
Make sure you discuss any future pregnancy plans with Dr. Corey during your initial conversation. While these plans won’t rule you out as a tummy tuck candidate, Dr. Corey will most likely recommend that you wait to undergo the procedure until you are finished having children. This will help you preserve your tummy tuck results as long as possible and reduce the likelihood that you may need a revision procedure down the road.
