Although you can become pregnant and carry a child after a tummy tuck, your pregnancy will stretch your abdominal muscles and skin. This can reverse the benefits of your tummy tuck and for that reason, we generally recommend that our Atlanta area patients wait until after pregnancy to have a tummy tuck.

If you have had a tummy tuck and do become pregnant, one of the best ways to help maintain the integrity of your tummy tuck results is to avoid significant weight gain during your pregnancy.

By waiting until you are finished having children, you can combine your tummy tuck with other procedures and have a complete mommy makeover. For example, your breasts will also be affected by your pregnancy, and you may develop unwanted pockets of fat that only respond well to liposuction. With a mommy makeover, you can combine a breast lift or breast augmentation with your tummy tuck and liposuction to restore your pre-motherhood body.
