Probably: If you are asking whether or not you can have a tummy tuck if you have von willebrand disease, the answer is probably. I would get you cleared by your hematologist first to limit the risk and get guidance. Bleeding issues should be minimized beforehand.

What?: If you mean, can someone with type i von willebrand disease have a tummy tuck, the answer is probably. You would need to have a preoperative workup, and specific precautions and arrangement may need to be made. If you do not have a hematologist, you may be requested to see one before surgery to help provide the best care possible.

With Clearance: Prior to proceeding with surgery, best to be evaluated carefully by your hematologist. He/she will be able to guide your surgeon with concerns such as appropriateness of proceeding with surgery and/or precautions to take around the time of surgery. Best wishes.

Confused by question: If you are asking can this cause - tummy tuck., then I am not aware of this being a cause of abdominal laxity and diastasis. If you are asking, can a tummy tuck be performed in patients with this condition, he answer is yes albeit with additional risks and additional precautions as mentioned here.
