Tummy Tucks and Pregnancy- What You Need to Know

Babies are cute and cuddly, but getting them here can certainly take a toll on your body. After pregnancy many women look at their loose, stretched out abdomen and start dreaming of their future tummy tuck. Turn that dream into a reality by scheduling your tummy tuck consultation with top plastic surgeon Dr. Sajjadian. He is triple board certified and is a highly skilled tummy tuck surgeon. Call to schedule your personalized consultation with him today.

Can a Tummy Tuck Reverse Pregnancy Related Changes to My Abdominal Area?

If you have loose skin or stretched out abdominal muscles, a tummy tuck may be right for you. The procedure is a very common addition to a mommy makeover and is a favorite of patients after massive weight loss. The procedure can restore a tight, toned appearance to the tummy and can dramatically improve contours across your midsection. It can even remove some stretch marks (typically those beneath the belly button, removed when the excess skin is removed). Having a baby doesn’t mean that your bikini days are done. Get a tummy tuck and love your middle again.

I Want Future Children. Do I Need to Wait for My Tummy Tuck?

Do you want to reverse pregnancy related changes to your body with a tummy tuck, but hope for additional children down the road? You may want to wait for your tummy tuck. Dr. Sajjadian generally recommends that women wait until after they’ve finished bearing children to schedule a tummy tuck. The dramatic results you’ll receive from your tummy tuck can be quickly reversed by a subsequent pregnancy. Wait until you’ve finished having children and you can enjoy your results for a lifetime.

What Happens If I Get Pregnant After a Tummy Tuck?

If you do have a tummy tuck now and find yourself pregnant in the future, don’t worry. Many women have safe pregnancies and deliveries after a tummy tuck. You may experience some sagging and stretched out skin after your pregnancy. In some cases a tummy tuck revision will be needed to correct these changes and to restore your abdominal appearance again.

A tight, flat tummy is possible after baby. Call and schedule your tummy tuck consultation with Dr. Sajjadian, one of the top plastic surgeons in California.
