Tummy Tuck Surgery After Having a Child

I am interested in getting a Tummy Tuck after my child is born to flatten my belly and tighten the muscles in my abdomen area. I’d like to get rid of my excess skin, fat and stretch marks.

Q: How long do I have to wait to get my Tummy Tuck after my child is born?

A: It is best to wait 6 months after your child is born at minimum before considering a Tummy Tuck. This lets your body heal and recover from the stress of child birth.

Q: What is the typical healing time after Tummy Tuck surgery?

A: Healing time can vary between 2 to 4 weeks. This time frame depends on how much excess skin and fat has been removed and if your rectus abdominus (six pack muscles) require any work done on them. Sometimes when a woman becomes pregnant her muscles separate and do not come back together following pregnancy. A Tummy Tuck will also address this situation.

Q: Can I get my Tummy Tuck and Liposuction at the same time?

A: Liposuction may be able to be done at the same time as a Tummy Tuck. This depends on 2 things: a) what type of Tummy Tuck you are having and b) the location where you are having liposuction. For example, the love handles can be done at the same time as a Tummy Tuck.

Q: What is the cost of a Tummy Tuck procedure and is financing available?

A: Cost is dependent upon how much time is required to perform your Tummy Tuck. The length of the surgery is based on the amount of excess skin, fat and size of the area to be removed. It can range from $3500-7000. Yes, financing is available.
