When Can I Get a Tummy Tuck After a C-Section?

After carrying a baby for nine months and giving birth, many women miss their “pre-baby” bodies. One of the most common complaints is that the stomach feels “loose” or “stretched out.” If this sounds like you, a tummy tuck may help. It involves removing excess skin and fat from around the abdomen. After the surgery, women notice their midsection looking more like it did before pregnancy.
