Does anyone know if you can have a Tummy Tuck after a C-Section if this is your last child? Since you are already in surgery and have that recover time in the hospital?

I want to say no for several reasons but I am not a doctor but this why I would not think it should not be wise to do it or if it will be healthly to do it doing a c-section operation for these followimg reasons:

1. you are not fully out or under asethsia therefore-not recomended

2. there are other health risks to look after after post c-section (healing) takes about 6 weeks for Post Patrum.

3. too much trauma on the body can cause complications and/or slower healing process

That is why I think it is best to do the tummy tuck perhaps separately maybe 6+ months ? after the c-section BUT after you weigh out the pros and cons and the real reason why you want this surgery. HTHS
I am not a doctor just another woman who had a child via c-section who could use a tummy tuck too. ;-)

My mom worked in plastic surgury for several years, and had a few tummy tucks done. I don't know if you could do it at the same time, or what not, but I would reccomend waiting awhile, for your body to recover 100% and baby is a little older and more independant.

Also, you can't move after its done, it will probably be extreamly hard to care for a newborn. It was about 3 weeks before my mom was walking normally. She also, had the drainage tubes caused her extreame pain. You also can't pick up heavy stuff, like nothing more than say a book, or a fork/spoon, etc.


Ask your dr/drs and see what they say since we arn't drs/etc.
