Tummy Tuck HobartPregnancy can change a Munster woman’s body, often in ways she does not like, leaving her with a body in which she may feel is unrecognizable. Tummy tucks after a Munster woman has decided not to have any additional children are a popular procedure. But, what if you had a C-Section? Is it safe to get a tummy tuck after a C-Section? Yes, it is! Continue reading as Munster board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frank of Robert Frank Plastic Surgery discusses the safety of tummy tucks after a C-Section, the benefits they provide and how long you have to wait after your C-Section to get a tummy tuck.

Tummy Tucks After C-Sections Are Perfectly Safe, and Common.

The great news for Munster women is that tummy tucks after C-sections are perfectly safe and extremely common. In fact, many Munster mothers choose to have a tummy tuck after a C-Section to regain their pre-pregnancy body and reduce the scarring from their C-Section procedure.

Tummy Tucks After C-Sections Can Give Munster Women Many Benefits.

Tummy tucks offer Munster mothers a variety of benefits, and this is especially true if you have a C-Section scar. When you get a tummy tuck after a C-Section, you can:

Remove C-Section scars

Repair separated abdominal muscles

Eliminate leftover pregnancy fat

Remove loose or sagging skin

Get rid of abdominal stretch marks

Contour your belly and waistline

Regain your pre-pregnancy body

Regain confidence in your body

How Long After a C-Section Do You Have to Wait for a Tummy Tuck?

While tummy tucks after C-Sections are perfectly safe, you do have to wait a bit before undergoing the elective plastic surgery procedure. Dr. Frank recommends that you wait 6-12 months after your C-Section to ensure that you have properly healed from that surgery. Wait until your post-pregnancy weight has stabilized, as weight gain after a tummy tuck can also negatively impact your results.

How Do I Know if I’m a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

There are some factors that make a Munster mother a good candidate for a tummy tuck, including women who:

Are done having children

Are in good overall health

Are non-smokers, or quit smoking at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after surgery

Can take time off of work and have assistance with childcare while recovering from a tummy tuck

Have realistic goals for the tummy tuck

Are in good psychological health
