How does a tummy tuck affect future pregnancies?

If I was to get a tummy tuck, could I still have children in the near future or is it best to have kids first?

Having a tummy tuck will not affect your ability to conceive or carry a child to term, but becoming pregnant after a tummy tuck may lead to your needing another tummy tuck! During a full tummy tuck, your plastic surgeon will tighten and repair your abdominal muscles and remove excess tummy tuck leaving you a nice flat stomach. If you become pregnant afterward, your body will still stretch to accommodate the growing baby. You may find you need a tummy tuck again afterwards. You may be left with excess skin and loose muscles after pregnancy. This is why most plastic surgeons recommend waiting until your family is complete before having the surgery. If I know my patient is planning a future pregnancy, I will often perform a J-tuck. This is a tummy tuck I have modified that does not involve repair of the abdominal muscles.

No, thank you. I do not want.
