13. Can I get pregnant after a tummy tuck?
You can get pregnant after having a tummy tuck and have a safe pregnancy. Pregnancy can undo some of the improvements made to the stomach when the tummy tuck was performed. For example, during a tummy tuck the rectus abdominus muscles (two vertical muscles in the central abdomen) are cinched back together in the midline. When you are pregnant these can be stretched apart again and never return to the tightened position after pregnancy.
