Getting Rid Of C Section Pouch
How normal is it to have a big pouch of skin after a c-section? Is it possible to get rid of this?
Difficult to imagine: What you mean by big pouch. If it is a cosmetic problem, consult with a plastic surgeon.
The only way is to: Drastically restrict your caloric intake, please see a good dietician.
I have a keloid from my c-section. How can I get rid of it, naturally? My c-section was about 9 months ago. The keloid was much larger right after it. But, I still feel a slight pain where it was (left side). I like to heal naturally through lifestyl
Hello.: Hello. Sometimes when people ask about healing something naturally, they mean without a medical provider's intervention. At other times, they are referring to avoiding use of chemicals/ drugs. You already received options from a dermatologist. In medical acupuncture we often perform scar deactivation and scar injections. Scar deactivation involves placing a ring of accunpture needles around the scar to disperse inflammation. The more powerful procedure involves injecting the scar with saline, Lidocaine and homeopathic medication. This allows the scar to become flatter, lighter colored and more flexible. However, the more important issue is that it decreased chronic inflammation from the scar. It can actually impact much deeper body layers, then just the scar that was sutured. The results can be quite amazing.See 1 more doctor answer
Exercise and lotions: "stretch marks" are not a "badge of courage" for most recently pregnant women and represent "breakdowns" in the skni's elasticity. Exercise can tone the abdominal muscles, and "lotions' and creams can minimize but not eliminate the appearance of "stretch marks".See 1 more doctor answer
Had a C-section a week ago & if don't pump every 3 hours my boobs get extremely painful & hard. Is pumping the only way to prevent/stop this? I don't nurse because he wouldn't latch on. Nurse said they were full
Breast engorgement.: Pumping helps. After pumping, use cold compresses and wear tight sports bras to keep them from getting engorged again. Hopefully, this will result in having to pump less often.
After a c-section when can I start to excersice to get rid of this belly? Can I do abdominals and things like that?
4 weeks: Most recommendations are to allow 4 (sometimes 6) weeks before resuming strenuous activity such as abdominal exercises.

What did your doc sa: Say if u are not going to breast feed they should ahve told u that u need to get a tight breast binder and use ice packs and take Motrin and do not stimulate or pump your breasts as if u do your milk will keep coming in, your breasts will get hard for a few days and engorged then they will go down, there used to be meds u could take, but now there are none they should have told u that!See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Always a way to get rid of that fat roll.
I have been raped and abused in the past. If I get pregnant in the future will I be able to choose to have a c-section to prevent PND and flashbacks?
Maybe: I'm not sure how things work in the UK. In the USA, some (but not all)) Ob/Gyns will do a c/section at your request in a situation like yours. However, you should know that not all insurance companies will pay for a c/section without an obstetrical reason. (This is a psychiatric reason, not an obstetric reason.) You will need to ask an Ob in the UK. Best wishes!
Pilates is good: Pilates is a good form of excercise that targets the core muscles. It may help. If you are just recently delivered, make sure you talk to your doctor to see if it is too soon to start working out. Another option is to go to a local health club and get a work out program to help you get back into shape.See 2 more doctor answers
What can I do to get rid of my muffin top I recently had a bby and my stomach is so ugly I had a C-section & my stomach is now hanging over the surgery it frustrates me so much what can I do about it?
I: I think that you can accomplish this with a good diet - eating less. Breastfeeding as long as you can. Getting on a exercise program with a good trainer, and getting proper sleep will work best. Of course getting your schedule in order, so that you have some time available to do these things is paramount. Mothers have a stressful, chaotic, sleep deprived existence. It will take lots of work, planning and courage to get control of this. You can do it. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer

I had tummy tuck 3 years ago to remove flap caused by C-section, what non surgical procedure can get rid of fat trapped in scar tissue causing bulge?
None is effective: Bulge at scar is result of tissue laxity that developed with time and following acute swelling post op. It is exacerbated by density of the scar and adherence of the scar to underlying tissues that causes tissues to bunch up at that level. It is not just fat.See 1 more doctor answer
