Surgical Correction for C-section Scars

The excess skin created by a C-section may be corrected by a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty procedure. As with all other aspects of plastic surgery, proper treatment comes from making a proper diagnosis.  There are three factors which contribute to the bulge: a tight band of scar tissue underneath the original C-section scar, excess fat in the lower abdomen, and loose skin.  I educate my Chicago patients, about the relative contribution of each of these factors that will determine the best treatment.
