Combining tummy tuck and C-section surgery

While having a tummy tuck right after a C-section is possible, we do not recommend it. Many women visit Dr. Sawan wanting to have a tummy tuck at the same time as their C-section or almost immediately afterward. His advice is to wait.

Why wait to have a tummy tuck?

Although it seems convenient to have both surgeries at once, it’s not advisable. A women’s body undergoes a lot of trauma during natural birth and a C-section is no exception. The timing is simply not ideal for Dr. Sawan to perform a tummy tuck. Bottom line, it’s a matter of safety. During a C-section, there is a highly trained team of medical professions in the room to safely deliver your baby and monitor your health throughout the entire process. Undergoing an elective procedure at the time of a medically necessary one involves greater risks of serious complications. It’s not worth putting yourself or your baby under unnecessary risks that can be easily avoided altogether.

When can I get a tummy tuck?

Dr. Sawan usually recommends that women wait at least 4 – 6 months after their C-section to consider a tummy tuck. The goal is to make sure your body has had ample time to heal prior to undergoing another surgical procedure. This will mitigate complications, such as blood clots, infection, fluid accumulation, and poor wound healing.

The benefits of waiting

Waiting will actually help provide better results and allow you to safely combine another cosmetic procedure, like liposuction, to help complement your outcomes. Giving your body enough time to recover is key to the success of your tummy tuck surgery.
