Brief Answer:
6 weeks with woman on top

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

What I hear from plastic surgeons is that the recovery after tummy tuck is 2 weeks more than any other plastic surgery.
Going by this, I suggest to refrain from sex for 6 weeks and gradually resume a light activity with you on top(female on top) as it will not put pressure on the tightened muscles. You can have normal intercourse after 8 weeks of tummy tuck surgery.

Hope this answers.
