How long after pregnancy must I wait before having a tummy tuck?

Surgeons usually recommend that you wait at least six months after pregnancy before having an abdominoplasty. This is because it can take around 6 months for the stretched abdominal muscles to recover after childbirth. It's also worth noting that during tummy tuck recovery you will not be able to lift infants so you may want to consider that when planning your procedure.
