Tummy Tuck Seattle: Will Pregnancy Affect Tummy Tuck Results?
Patients who seek a tummy tuck are often doing so to repair the separation of muscles and extra skin that occurs after children. Many of these women do not plan on having any future pregnancies. However, some women want a tummy tuck before they have children. A common question is: will pregnancy affect tummy tuck results?
The short answer to this question is yes. Any pregnancy or dramatic change to your body following any plastic surgery will change the look of your results. For example, after breast augmentation women can usually still breastfeed, but their breasts will look larger. While their breasts will likely return to their pre-pregnancy size, changes can still occur due to the expansion of skin.
This same concept can be applied to a tummy tuck. Some patients get pregnant and see some changes to their tummy tuck results, but not ones they find significant. Other patients may require a revision surgery. It is not uncommon to see re-separation of the abdominal muscles and extra skin recur when pregnancy occurs after a tummy tuck.
Every patient’s body will react differently to pregnancy and a tummy tuck. If you plan on having children after your procedure, discuss this with Dr. Sajan so that he can ensure a long lasting and good result. He may recommend waiting until after you have children.
