  • I was totally thinking about this when I had my c section but I was too jittery from nerves to joke with him! lol It's worth a try right?

  • i have had 3 c-sections. Although it sounds nice to have the tummy tuck included in the procedure, I was told that it would increase the pain by at least 10 fold.

    I am however going to be able to have a tummy tuck after i lose another 40lbs due to the access skin over lapping my scar. (it will be considered a medical necessity and my insurance will pay for half! YAY!!!)

  • i had to get an emergency c section. so i had no choice. i ate healthy and gained a normal pregnancy weight. so i didn't have any extra skin when my son was born. i wouldn't have cared if i did have extra layers as long as he was healthy.

  • Actually if you schedule it in advance it can be done. But I don't have that kind of $$$ like the Hollywood actresses do. My OB joked about it during my c-section.
