Had an ultra sound lower abdomen just below c -section scar and results came back stating the lump I felt was fat. Could this become cancerous?

Had an ultra sound lower abdomen just below c -section scar and results came back stating the lump I felt was fat. Could this become cancerous?

No: There are tumors (sarcomas) which are cancers of connective tissue (which is type of tissue, along with fat, that's under your scar). Lumps under cesraean section scars are usually scars that can take years to dissolve and go away. The chances of this lump under your cesarean become cancer is very very very close to zero. Doctor can inject with steroids if causing you pain, but time will heal. ...Read more

Why do I have a loose stomach after caesarean section?

Why do I have a loose stomach after caesarean section?

Loss of muscle tone: During a c-section, the long muscles of the abdominal wall are cut by incision. By cutting the muscles, nerves to the muscles can be damaged leading to atrophy of the muscles. Repair of the incision involves sutures. The surgical repair of the incisions can only approximated 80-90% of the original strength of the original tissues. Thus over time the wall may bulge or herniate. ...Read more

What can I do to address the stomach scars after a c-section?

What can I do to address the stomach scars after a c-section?

Revision: When undergoing a c-section, the priority is not to make a good skin closure, but to present you with a healthy baby. Frequently I see c-section scars that have not had all the layers of the abdomen repaired, sometimes even with the scar stuck to the outer covering of the muscle. Any good plastic surgeon is able to revise your scar and restore the proper layers. ...Read more

I've had a C-section and I heard the scar stops you from being able to get a flat stomach again. Is this true?

I've had a C-section and I heard the scar stops you from being able to get a flat stomach again. Is this true?

Nope.: A "postpartum potbelly" is usually the result of laxity of the abdominal wall and separation of the rectus abdominus muscles after pregnancy and childbirth. The treatment is an abdominoplasty, in which the muscles are repositioned in the midline and excess skin and fat is removed. This should only be undertaken when you are finished having children. The scar has nothing to do with it. ...Read more

How to reduce my post natal abdomen after c section. I have started using post natal belt after 6 weeks but still I can't get flat stomach.

Exercise: You will need to exercise to achieve a flat stomach after having a baby. Once you have been cleared by your doctor/midwife you should start a regular program. It is not necessary to focus only on your abdominal muscles. Once you are finished breast feeding, start a lower calorie diet if you haven't returned to your prepregnancy weight. Persistance and time will help you get your body back. ...Read more
