Dear Grey

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

I confirm that you will be able to have a tummy tuck. You should just be careful after the operation, to prevent infection, as being a diabetic, you will not heal that fast. You will also have to optimise your diabetes control. This in turn will assist in rapid wound healing.

Kind regards
