Cesarean section, or C-section, delivery is a common method for childbirth, either by necessity or choice. While it can be a life-saving procedure, the changes to the abdomen resulting from both pregnancy and C-section delivery are often undesired by many women. At Vantage Plastic Surgery in NYC, Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, a double board-certified plastic surgeon, offers a a body contouring option to reshape the lower abdomen after pregnancy through a tummy tuck after C-section delivery.
Dr. Shteynberg’s expertise in performing tummy tuck and scar revision procedures makes him a sought-after specialist in body contouring. The location of the C-section scar is a common concern for post-delivery patients. It might be higher on the abdomen than where Dr. Shteynberg would typically place a tummy tuck incision. A tummy tuck after C-section delivery allows for the tightening of muscles and skin in the abdomen, resulting in a flatter, firmer stomach. Dr. Shteynberg’s goal is to create only one scar during the tummy tuck, strategically placed below the bikini line for easier concealment.
This procedure can typically be performed in the months following childbirth, and Dr. Shteynberg can advise on the optimal timing during your consultation. An alternative option for reshaping the stomach after childbirth is to combine a tummy tuck with a C-section delivery. In collaboration with the OB/GYN, Dr. Shteynberg can perform the tummy tuck after the baby is delivered, streamlining the process and minimizing the recovery period. While this may seem like an ideal solution, there are drawbacks, including a potentially longer recovery period, restricting the new mother’s ability to pick up their child immediately.
If you are considering a tummy tuck after C-section delivery or a combination of both procedures, scheduling a consultation with Dr. Shteynberg is the first step to understanding your options and determining the most suitable approach for your unique needs.
