Should I wait for a tummy tuck?
Arlene, Well, that is a great question. The benefit of waiting to have a tummy tuck until you have decided not to have anymore children is that once you have the tummy tuck, you will not need to have it repeated again. If you should get pregnant after the tummy tuck, the worst thing that can happen is the results obtained after the tummy tuck will be gone. When Dr. Kleinman performs a tummy tuck, he not only reduces the amount of skin (the part of the belly that hangs over pants) he also gives you the waist back that you had prior to pregnancy. So you unfortunately are going to have to decide and the good news is that whatever your decision is (have the tummy tuck now or wait to have the tummy tuck until you are finished having children) it will be the correct one. Best of Luck, Noela
