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.

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.

How safe is it to have a tummy tuck at age 53. I have no health problems and work out 2 to 5 times per week.

Very Safe: While all surgical procedures have some risks, a 53y/o without any medical problems should not have any greater risk for surgery. An abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, is almost always perfomed as an outpatient procedure. Follow up is at 24-48 hours and you often return to a desk type job within a week. My patients are usually back to full exercise within 4 weeks. ...Read more

Yes it can: I do it on almost every tummy tuck, as my ok league mentioned it depends on what volume you are looking for. If you want much bigger, more aggressive lipo is needed to get more volume, and this is advisable separately. Shape change can be seen with small volumes, but not so much size. ...Read more
