Is the Tummy Tuck Procedure Possible Through C-section Scar?

A RealSelf user is considering a tummy tuck procedure, and she is still missing some information about the procedure, so her thoughts are still blurry. She turns to Dr. Kevin Tehrani, one of the best tummy tuck surgeons in New York, to answer her worrying tummy tuck questions and help her feel comfortable by the thought of having a tummy tuck procedure.


Tummy Tuck Question asked by a RealSelf User

“I’m in the process of considering getting a tummy tuck and possibly a breast augmentation. I’m not ready (financially) to get it done just yet but I’m looking into several surgeons in my area. I have had two children via c-section. My scar is very low, lower than a lot of post op photo’s I’ve seen of tummy tucks. Can that scar be used to do a tummy tuck? I’m aware that the length of the scar would need to be longer but I want the scar to be as low as possible, right where my c section scar is.”, a RealSelf user asked.

Tummy Tuck Answer by Dr. Kevin Tehrani

Following is what Dr. Tehrani, a top abdominoplasty surgeon, answered.

“Thank you for this very important question. In my opinion, the proper abdominoplasty scar especially in a lateral tension abdominoplasty is below your C-section scar. I am sure you’ve seen a lot of pictures in traditional abdominoplasties where the scar is generally too high. I place my scars extremely low as to avoid this issue and to be able to camouflage the scar within low riding bikinis. Please seek a board-certified plastic surgeon with expertise in this area and could show you before-and-after pictures with similar results as to what you’re planning to achieve.”, Aristocrat’s board-certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S explained.
