How long should I wait to have a tummy tuck afterc section and what do u tjthink about tummy tucks (witch hazel)?

It depends: I perform a significant number of tummy tucks (witch hazel) each year for my young mothers and feel that this is a great procedure when done by a qualified plastic surgeon with experience in this area. I generally recommend waiting a few months following a c-section so that soft tissue swelling has gone done and your hormones have returned to a more natural state. ...Read more

Yes: After pregnancy, particularly after twins, the skin and fascia of the abdomen have often been stretched beyond their ability to shrink back. Exercising the muscles will tighten them but won't remove the excess skin or separation that may exist between the muscles. A tummy tuck is a reliable way to get rid of the skin and tighten the fascia. See a board certified plastic surgeon for a consult. ...Read more

Possibly.: Removal of stretch marks will require direct skin excision. For example, stretch marks that are present along the lower abdominal wall may very well be removed during tummy tuck surgery. Of coarse, in person consultation with board certified plastic surgeons will be your best option for precise advice. Ask to see lots of examples of their work and communicate your goals clearly. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is it possible to get stretch marks from having a tummy tuck procedure?

Is it possible to get stretch marks from having a tummy tuck procedure?

Unlikely: I have not heard of or seen stretch marks resulting from a tummy tuck. However, some of the stretch marks that were present before the tummy tuck may still be there afterwards but in a different location. Most of the time this improves the appearance or makes the marks smaller because much of the involved skin is removed. ...Read more

How old must you be to get tummy tuck?

Age is not factor: Tummy tucks (witch hazel) are done to repair muscle defects or weakness and to remove lax, excess skin. Age not as important as the skin and patient history. Young people have more elasticity, therefore less excess skin. Following final pregnancy is a common time to begin to think about it. Tucks (witch hazel) are not for weight loss, and are a serious surgical undertaking. ...Read more
