mini tummy tuck.during c section

Has anyone ever had a mini tummy tuck during c section? My cousin had.one and.her stomach is.completely flat but she was tiny to start with. i am pregnant with my 3rd and last baby. i gained almost 90 lbs thr first time and ever since.I've.never.been able to lose the.loose skin.!!  I was going to shoot for a vbac but.if my doctor will perform this.i will do another section in a heartbeat it beats having you vagina ripped in a mile directions (personal experience lol) ..

Mini tummy tucks are a serperate thing over here and can run to 10,000. The mommy makeover seems interesting lol idk if I wanna add more debt to my college loans, but it seemd tempting lol

Holy crap 10000 is crazy!! I'm a stay at home.mom so i don't actually work but.I'm sure some people might actually need it. so maybe insurance covers.some of.it.or something. ill def ask about it.next Thursday when i have my.ultrasound they.might.not even do it where i go. but from what I've read.up online some peoples doctors recommended it.to.them and they had no clue they.did.them either. one girl got 1/2inch of scar tissue removed and another 1/2 inch of fat . I'm def. curious about this!!!

Insurance doesn't cover it. This will be my 4th baby and 3rd c-section. I am already saving up for a tummy tuck. The extra skin hurts its not just annoying.

If.i had to pay for it od get a full blown tummy tuck rather than a mini one. lol

We only had one dr in my town who would do it completmentry. But he's not here anymore. I don't know anything about them but I have heard good amd bad things I would def research it and talk to you dr. If its a good option it would be worth the repeat c section!!

I got a tummy tuck last yr. Only skin removal. Did not need muscle repair. Didn't get lipo. I got it because I've had 2 c sections and gained 100lbs with 1 and 50 lbs with second kid. So lots of extra skin. It was 6 thousand. They have a card with easy payments. Carecredit.com if interested. I am now pregnant with my third and wondering how things will go with a third c section after a tummy tuck. Good luck to you.

Did.you have a.regular full tuck.or.mini?? How was recovery di you have drains and stuff????  
Avatar universal
It was a full. Yes had drains for one wk.What an ugly scar those leave, but hidden. My recovery was about 5 days pain wise. I'm a massage therapist so a very physical job, but was back at it in a week. Just had to wear a wrap and lots of creams.

Yeah I have had a liposuction but not during c-section. I chose a clinic in Toronto to undergo it. Dr. Ronald Levine was my surgeon. He tried his best to get a better result and I’m pretty much happy with my body now. Coming to your case, I don’t think undergoing a tummy tuck (mini or full) during a c-section will be a good option. See, after a c-section, your body will go through several significant processes/changes, that is you will not be stable. So you may not get the result that you expect from the surgery. So what I suggest you is wait few months until you become stable and then undergo the surgery.
