c-section and tummy tuck

Has anyone ever had a tummy tuck after giving birth to their baby via c-section? If so what was your out of pocket expense or did you even have any extra expense?

  • My doctor told me no on this. He said it's dangerous and likely wouldn't be able to make my stomach as tight as I'd want because of the trauma of the C-section...then I'd just end up needing another tummy tuck. He said it was best to wait until after you have healed, at least 6 months out. He also said he'd never actually heard of it done except in Hollywood.
