Every bride wants to look bomb on her big day, sure. But if your plan is to schedule a quick tummy tuck right before your wedding day, think again. Still tempted to give last-minute plastic surgery a try? Check out these three super good reasons to plan ahead or wait till after your honeymoon.
1. You’ll Get #Swole
Seriously, you’ll probably look and feel bigger than you did before your tummy tuck for the first few weeks afterwards. Swelling is a totally normal effect after plastic surgery, but it’s not exactly what you want while saying your “I dos.”
2. Do You Really Wanna Limit Physical Activity?
A tummy tuck is an extensive surgical procedure, so you’re gonna have to limit your physical activity for a while after. Unless you feel like hobble-walking down the aisle and getting zero action on your honeymoon, you’ll probably want to hold off on your tummy tuck until after the wedding festivities are over.

3. You Won’t See Results in Time, Anyway
It’ll take 3 to 4 months for your tummy tuck results to even begin to develop, while your final results coming in around the 9-month mark. So if you don’t have this kind of time before your wedding to wait around for results, all that stressing out and last-minute running around isn’t going to be worth it at all.
Plus, your tummy tuck recovery should be anything but stressful. If you’re running around like a madwoman trying to get things ready for your big day, the last thing you want to worry about is staying off your feet and nursing yourself back to full strength.
