Tummy Tuck With C-Section Delivery
Many patients have consulted with Dr. Jones about the feasibility of a tummy tuck with C-section delivery. While this treatment option may seem like the ideal way to restore the aesthetics of the midsection, there can be several potential complications. Performing a tummy tuck at the same time as a C-section is possible in theory, but is not recommended. In fact, the procedure could result in damage to abdominal muscles that may have otherwise returned to their natural shape without intervention.
Other potential complications include infection, blood clots and bulging around the midsection. Patients are advised to wait several months after pregnancy before undergoing a tummy tuck. This is in large part due to the effects that maternal hormones have on the abdominal muscles and soft connective tissues.
Dr. Jones has the experience and expertise necessary to provide patients with realistic treatment recommendations. If you have gone through multiple pregnancies or carried a large baby, permanent separation of the abdominal muscles is more likely. A tummy tuck can help to restore the natural feel and shape of the midsection after such pregnancies.

Tummy Tuck Benefits After C-Section
There are several important benefits of a tummy tuck after C-section surgery. The scar resulting from a C-section is often easily noticeable above the bikini line. In some cases, the scar tissue bulges and shows through clothing. New mothers may experience a loss of confidence due to C-section scarring. A tummy tuck can remove obvious C-section scarring and help you regain confidence in your beach body.
The separation of abdominal muscles occurs during the majority of pregnancies and is often permanent. A tummy tuck is used to repair these muscles to restore the natural look and feel of the abdomen. If you have excess fatty tissue after pregnancy, Dr. Jones can provide treatment through an abdominoplasty. The procedure is also ideal for removing sagging or stretch-marked skin.
For women who are experiencing postpartum depression, hormonal imbalance is just one piece of the puzzle. Body image can play a large part in the loss of confidence after C-section surgery. A tummy tuck can help a woman regain a positive outlook about the aesthetics of her abdominal area. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones is a passionate plastic surgeon who offers his patients effective treatment solutions in Atlanta, Georgia.
