Tummy Tuck after C-section Delivery
An abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure in which excess fat and skin are removed from the abdominal area and weakened or separated muscles are tightened. This cosmetic procedure is intended to flatten the abdomen and restore a more toned and youthful appearance. If you have had a C-section and want to restore a flat, firm stomach, Maia Plastic Surgery offers tummy tuck after C-section delivery plastic surgery at our clinic in the Washington, DC metro area.
Tummy tucks after C-section deliveries are very common, especially if the child that was delivered is expected to be the last child. A tummy tuck can rejuvenate the tummy area and have the additional benefit of lowering the C-section scar to the top of the pubic region. Dr. Maia can discuss the best timing on when to undergo a tummy tuck procedure after C-section delivery and the right procedure to ensure you get the results you desire.
Tummy Tuck with C-section
A tummy tuck with C-section, or a C-tuck, is a fairly new phenomenon that combines the two procedures. In this procedure, abdominoplasty is performed in conjunction with the cesarean delivery. A tummy tuck incision is larger than a C-section incision, but it is near the top of the pubic bone to make it more discreet. The abdomen muscles can be tightened, excess fat removed and the skin tightened right after delivery. The advantage is only one surgery and recovery; plus, the patient has the benefit of restoring her tummy to flat and firm much quicker after pregnancy.
If you are planning a C-section delivery or already have had a C-section, a tummy tuck can rejuvenate your abdomen for a firmer, flatter stomach after pregnancy.
