Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
Excess Skin over Tummy Tuck Scar
After I had my last daughter, my doctor found an umbilical hernia. I was scheduled for surgery and decided to have a tummy tuck at the same time. I was advised they would not disconnect my belly button. Doctor decided no drains were needed. I have a lot of numbness in my abdomen. I had all my post-pregnancy belly, but my friends who have had C-section say it's common. I am concerned about a pooch above my scar. I haven't gained a lot of weight and it has been there from the time my surgery was done.
