Plus, the uterus is still at the level of the belly button at the time of delivery and it would be impossible to get great results. I'd say that if a care provider was advertising this, then run. OBs are not trained in this sort of surgery and that sounds like a marketing gimmick.
well it doesnt sound like an old wives tale to me if its actually be done! and its NOT a tummy tuck its like a skin tightening thing or something. Logical sense would tell me that a "tummy tuck" would not be good timing during a c-section!
Im still going to talk to my doc about though and although Im very thankful for all my children, I still would not mind getting a little help with my tummy as long as it doesnt interfere with anything else and there were no other complications.
