Tummy Tuck After C-Section

Tummy Tuck After C-section Delivery

After a c-section, it may be challenging to bounce back into the body you enjoyed before pregnancy. A c-section poses its own set of challenges that are different from a vaginal delivery. Since the delivery takes place through an incision in the abdomen, you will need time to heal before considering a tummy tuck. Dr. Spence can best advise you as to the proper time and body contouring procedure to make you feel comfortable in your body again.

Is a Tummy Tuck After C-Section Safe?

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved with a tummy tuck after a c-section delivery. Six months is the average time recommended to heal after c-section before undergoing a tummy tuck. This will allow the incision from your c-section to fully heal and allow your body to return to normal. It is not advised to rush the decision to undergo a tummy tuck. This could cause undue stress on the body and lead to longer recovery times. Waiting also allows you to get closer to your ideal weight, which results in less skin removal during a tummy tuck. This could help avoid excess scarring. It is also advised to postpone a tummy tuck if you plan to have more children in the future.

The decision to have a tummy tuck is one that needs to be thoroughly investigated. Dr. Kenrick Spence and the team at Hillcrest Plastic Surgery are here to offer expert advice on tummy tuck after c-section delivery, explain the risks and benefits, and give you the confidence you need to make the best decision for you.

I have been a patient of Dr. Spence twice now. I didn't hesitate to contact him when I was ready to move forward with my adominoplasty. It has been a long and, at times, rough recovery but Dr. Spence and his staff have been right by my side every step of the way.
