Tummy Tuck after C-section Delivery
Pregnancy often causes significant changes to a woman’s body, and many of these changes are not welcome. One notable change is a flabby abdomen caused by stretching skin and musculature from carrying a baby. Very often, weight loss and exercise have little effect on this problem area, leaving women frustrated with their post-pregnancy appearance. Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, is often a solution to restore your pre-pregnancy shape after a vaginal or c-section delivery.
The most common scenario is for a patient to undergo tummy tuck surgery about six months after a c-section delivery. This allows time for the body’s natural healing to be accomplished, including any shrinkage of the area. The tummy tuck can then address any remaining excess skin and fat, repair stretched or misplaced abdomen muscles and hide the C-section scar.
Often Dr. Dayan can lower the standard c-section scar to below the bikini line, effectively hiding it for a smoother, scar-free appearance. If you are through having children, call Avance Plastic Surgery Institute for a tummy tuck after C-section consultation with Dr. Dayan.
Tummy Tuck with C-section Delivery
Another scenario is to have a tummy tuck procedure with C-section delivery. Cesarean deliveries are often planned in advance, allowing for Dr. Dayan to be present to perform the tummy tuck procedure immediately after delivery. Combining both surgical procedures into one is a desirable option for some women when conditions allow. Dr. Dayan and your OB/GYN will consult before and at the time of delivery to ensure the tummy tuck procedure is safe.
Before considering a tummy tuck with or after C-section delivery, schedule a consultation to discuss the options, benefits and risks with Dr. Dayan. He is a highly-skilled cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgeon who can return your body to its pre-pregnancy appearance. You will fully understand the procedure and receive answers to any questions before the procedure is scheduled.
