For a flat stomach a tuck is...
If your goal is a flat firm abdomen then you will need a tummy tuck. The excess skin can be removed and the muscle coverings can be tightened to bring back your tone. Be sure to see a board certified plastic surgeon.
Lipoabdominoplasty and hernia repair
You would greatly benefit from a lipoabdominoplasty or tummy tuck to remove the excess skin. This will also plicate your rectus muscles to correct your diastasis. At the same time you will need a hernia repair because you appear to have an umbilical hernia.
From your photos you look like you would be a good candidate for a tummy tuck with plication of your rectus or abdomuinal muscles.
Tummy Tuck May Help Repair Damage From A C-Section
Thank you for your question and pictures. A tummy tuck which can tighten your muscles and remove excess skin will help your situation. You may also have a hernia which may need to be addressed at the time of surgery as well. Seek out a board certified plastic surgeon with experience to help guide you.
You appear to have very loose skin and most likely rectus diastasis from having children.
I would recommend a full tummy tuck with muscle plication.
The best way to assess and give true advice would an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative surgery.
best of luck!
Would surgery be necessary to correct stomach damage due to 2 c sections?
You are definately a candidate for a full tummy tuck with muscle repair of the rectus (6 pack) muscle . what I can't tell from a photo alone is how much muscle damage exists from your pregnancies. You may require a more extensive abdominal wall repair requiring synthetic mesh material.Only a consult from a board certified plastic surgeon would resolve this issue. best of luck!
#Tummytuck can help repair the #abdomen after childbirth/C-sections
As always, an in-person consultation is necessary to give you definitive recommendations but for patients of mine that have complaints like yours, I offer a full tummy tuck with muscle repair. When we have babies, our rectus abdominus muscles (6-pack muscles) will separate from the midline to allow room for the baby to grow. Although they return somewhat to a more normal position after birth, in most women they don't completely return to the middle. This leaves women with a weakness in the abdominal wall which causes the pouch commonly seen and also increases the width of the waistline. In addition, the vast majority of women also have loose skin after birth as well. A tummy tuck not only removes the excess skin but also tightens the lax muscles like an internal corset to help flatten the tummy and trim the waistline. The scar can be positioned fairly low in most cases so as to hide it under garments/bathing suits and with time they typically fade and are not too perceptible. I put all of my patients on a post-surgical scar program as well which can include scar massage, taping, sun protection, and a series of laser treatments. Please make sure that you consult with board certified/eligible plastic surgeons for best recommendations. Good luck!

Would surgery be necessary to correct stomach damage due to two cesarean sections?
Based on your photos but without an examination, you appear anatomically to be a candidate for a full tummy tuck with repair of the stretched abdominal wall musculature t is
difficult to tell whether you are a good candidate without a physical
examination and complete medical history. It would depend on your anatomical
findings, motivation, realistic expectations, and whether you are finished
having children. Breast surgery could be performed whether you decide to become
pregnant again or not. An abdominoplasty, either a full “tummy tuck” or a
shorter incision modified procedure should be delayed until you have finished
all of your pregnancies.

member of my family underwent these procedures, they would be performed by an
experienced plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of
Plastic Surgery and a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic
Surgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. If you are serious about
undergoing these procedures, you should have a thorough consultation with a
plastic surgeon having those credentials, who will fully explain what is
entailed in the procedures, including both the positives and potential
problems. You should be complimented on the fact that you are seeking valid
information before jumping into any procedure.
