Liposuction: Q&AAsk a Question
Lipo or Tummy Tuck for Muffin Top After Myomectomy?
I am 5’5”, 174 lbs, and 3.5 weeks post op from abdominal myomectomy for fibroids. Prior to surgery, I needed to lose 15 pounds and had mild abdominal fat, but I could “suck it in”. I now have the dreaded "muffin top," this excess skin or fat hanging over my C-section scar, in 1-inch shelf-like distribution.
Is 3.5 weeks too early to expect this to be gone? Anything non-invasive I can do? Will I need invasive techniques, is Vaser or Smart Lipo, or would I need abdominoplasty? I’m interested in liposuction, but, I don’t want hanging skin.
There are a few options
You need at least a mini tummy tuck.
Changes after Abdominal Myomectomy
