    Yes, additional pregnancy can negatively impact the results of your tummy tuck. It is best to wait until you have completed your family.

    Yes, it is usually recommended that you complete having your children so as to maintain your tummy tuck results after surgery.

    It is medically safe to have children after having had a tummy tuck, so if you have had extensive weight loss, and have extra skin, you might find it worth while. However, pregnancy will of course stretch the skin, and you will lose some of the benefits. In general unless you think it would be worth it to you to risk having to repeat the procedure, it is best to wait until you have had your children.
