The most common way to get rid of a C-section overhang is with a tummy tuck. The procedure varies from person to person, but you’ll be able to get a better idea of how extensive the job could be by speaking to a consultant.

Overhangs after a caesarean section are common and are caused by the scar’s tightness in comparison to the surrounding skin. A procedure MYA offer to remove excess skin, unwanted scars, stretch marks and fat from the stomach and to tighten the muscles, giving a flatter appearance, is an abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy-tuck. This can take up to three hours, with a one or two-night stay in hospital. You need to stay for the extra night if your belly button needs to be removed and repositioned after excess fat and skin is removed.
