Tummy_Tuck_C_Section.pngBecoming a mother is a great joy and brings many rewards.  A changing body shape, however, is not usually one of them.  For mothers who underwent a C-section, a long desired tummy tuck might seem especially challenging.  In fact, some women ask if they can have a tummy tuck during the C-section itself.

An elective tummy tuck immediately following a C-section is not advised.  Tissues and skin have stretched and hormones are changing as the woman prepares to give birth.  The intra-abdominal uterus needs time to shrink and go back to its normal size.  It is only after birth and recovery that a woman’s shape and elasticity of skin can be seen and a surgical plan created.  It is advised that women wait at least several months before seeking either a mini or a full tummy tuck.

If you have had a C-section or have one planned, please call Advanced Cosmietic Surgical Center in Denver.  Our experts are happy to discuss tummy tuck procedures and review your options.
