Can you get a plain panniculectomy right after a c-section?

In brief: Yes, but should you?

It can be done, but usually people have so much going on that it is a poor idea.
Although i routinely perform both panniculectomies and abdominoplasties (tummy tucks), i truly believe that giving birth to a child is an incredibly special event. A mother would want to be able to devote as much time to caring for her infant, not necessarily recovering from an additonal elective procedure. Wait.
