In brief: Hopefully One

Tummy tuck surgery can be repeated if necessary.
However, best to plan the tummy tuck correctly, in relation to life circumstances such as pregnancies and/or weight gain/loss. In other words, best to undergo tummy tuck surgery once when pregnancies have been completed and patients have achieved a long-term stable weight.

In brief: First is best

Ideally there should only be one tummy tuck after a woman has completed childbearing.
Minor revisions or extensions are occasionally helpful, but a repeat tummy tuck is not usually beneficial.

In brief: Why more than one?

I hate to answer your question with a question, but why would you need more than one? Most of the time i recommend that my patients are done having children before having a tummy tuck.
In that case, one should be sufficient. If a patient has lost large amounts of weight (such as after a gastric bypass) they may need more than one operation to deal with the excess skin.

In brief: Many

You can have revisional tummy tucks (witch hazel).
But if it didnt go right the first two times why get another. There is a point of diminishing returns.
