Dr. Otto J. Placik answered:

Will weight gain after a tummy tuck make my belly button hurt?

Not usually

Weight
However if you have gained a significant amount of weight, you may be putting undue stress on your diastasis repair which could be associated with umbilical pain or you may have a hernia. I would discuss with your surgeon, you may need to perform diagnostic imaging.

Can a tummy tuck help a post-pregnancy belly? I recently gave birth to twin girls. Right now, I am five months postpartum, but none of the exercises that I am doing are helping get rid of my saggy belly skin. Can tummy tucks actually get rid of all this e

Yes

Muscle
Tummy tucks or adominoplasty is great at rejuvenating the post oartum abdomen. This procedure will realign your rectis muscles in the midline limiting the diastasis typically created by your pregnancy as well as remove excess skin laxity and unsitely stretch marks. Remember, however, if you plan to having more children this will typically recur.

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.

How long should i wait to have a tummy tuck afterc section and what do u tjthink about tummy tucks?

It depends

Body_weight
I perform a significant number of tummy tucks 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.

I am planning to get prego soon but problem is i had a tummy tuck 2 years ago i wanted to know if its harmful to the baby if i was to wear a girdle most of my pregnancy? i know it sounds vain but im scared to gain too much weight and let my stomach stretc

Ask Obgyn

Pregnancy
Best to run this question by your OB/GYN. Personally, I do not think that the use of a girdle will necessarily prevent you from “gaining too much weight” during pregnancy. Maintaining a healthy weight, under the supervision of your OB/GYN, will be important for many reasons ( including minimizing the chances that additional surgery will be necessary after delivery).

Dr. Daniel Careaga answered:

If you lose weight and exercise can you get rid of the excess abdominal fat called an "apron?" Or is a tummy tuck the only permanent solution?

Not likely

If by the "apron" you mean a redundant collection of hanging skin, then the answer is no, that must be surgically removed. You should lose weight and exercise to get down to your goal weight and then seek out a plastic surgeon to begin the process of contouring your body.

Dr. Tom K. Pousti answered:

What makes a good candidate for a mini tummy tuck? Recently, I lost some weight. I was not huge to begin with, but I definitely have some loose skin especially around my belly. My current height is 5'6" and my weight is 135 pounds. Are they within range f

Rare Patient

Skin
Generally, the mini tummy tuck is an  operation that  produces very limited results and is very rarely indicated. It involves a shorter incision but does not address the majority of the abdominal wall issues present for most patients who present consultation, after pregnancy and/or weight gain/loss. Seek consultation with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons for more precise advice.

Mini TT Selection

Height
It you have limited skin overhang of the lower tummy and you are skinny then a mini-tummy tuck would most likely be worth it. See a board certified plastic surgeon to be sure

Need for examination

Your symptoms suggest that a physical examination along with detailed history and may be some tests would be needed to provide a meaningful opinion. It would be prudent to see your doctor as this forum may not be appropriate for your concerns.
