I had a c section 3 weeks ago and now I have a flap of skin hanging over my incision. It's not saggy... it is tight skin but I'm wondering if this will ever go back? I had a tight flat tummy before I got pregnant. Anyone know if this will go back with lots of excercise?

  • I completely disagree with these answers. While working with many moms who have had a c-section, they're tummy's have again firmed up through proper nutrition and exercise. It's only been 3 weeks since you had your baby, Congrats!, please be patient with yourself and your body!

  • If it's tight skin that is in a flap, I don't think it could go back. Ask your doctor. Maybe a plastic surgeon could take it off for you.
