C Section pouch?

Does anyone have the "pouch" left by a c-section? The thing that hangs there regardless of exercise and sit ups? What do you do to get rid of it?

  • I had two C Sections. I'm 45. I have been in a size 3/4 pair of pants afterwards and can't get rid of the pouch. I'm now in a size 8. Age and menopause equals no metabolism. Anyhow I was told by a plastic surgeon the only way to get rid of the pouch is to have the excess skin removed. You can do sit ups til the cows come home and that skin will always be there.

  • Yes, I do. I suspect it will only get worse as I lose weight. Since there isn't really anything you can do to tighten up loose skin, I may consider having at least a partial tummy tuck.

  • Yes! Oh my, I HATE it too. One day I'll save up enough money and get a tummy tuck. I don't know if there is anything that can be done outside of surgery.....

    I am right there with you, Mama. Three c-sections for me. I sooooo feel your pain.

  • I'm the same way, I had two of them and I was thinking of getting a mommy make over, just the (tummy tuck part of it:) People say walk and work out, I've done all of that and nothing will get rid of it , not to mention when my husband thinks its cute to just grab it, I'm like are you serious?????I will keep trying before actually doing the surgery, but man it sounds great, wish I had a c-section eraser....Good luck dear!
