That's a question you'll need to ask your Oncologist.  If the cancer is gone, it would probably be okay, but you should really check with your surgical team to see if it is advised.  If you found a plastic surgeon to do the surgery, that doctor would probably want your Oncologist's blessing first.  Who has recommended you do the tummy tuck?

Congratulations on your success!

Best wishes to you.
