A Caesarean or C-section, is the surgical delivery of a baby through the abdomen.
A C-section operation involves making an incision in the stomach and the womb to deliver the baby. After the baby has been delivered the mother is stitched up and the incision site is closed. An overhang is common after a caesarean and is caused by the tightness of the scar in comparison to the surrounding skin, causing an overhang of excess skin or fat.
The most common way to get rid of a C-section overhang is with an Abdominoplasty procedure, often known as a Tummy Tuck. A tummy tuck procedure with an expert MYA surgeon will remove excess skin or fat, unwanted scars, stretch marks and tighten the stomach muscles, to create the appearance of a flatter stomach.
The procedure varies from person to person, depending on the patient’s individual requirements. The average tummy tuck procedure can take up to 3 hours in surgery and patients are required to rest at home for 7-14 days.
