Baby Pouch Gone
The problem and feelings you have are very common after childbirth. You are probably an excellent candidate for mini or full tummy tuck surgery. The choice would depend on the amount of excess skin present and your abdominal muscle tone. In either case your old C-section would be removed and every attempt made to hide your surgical scar in your bathing suit line. To find more make an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon.
Mommy Makeover or tummy tuck after pregancy
most women who have had several babies are usally good candidates for a tummy tuck. abdominoplasty removes loose excess abdominal skin while tightening the muscles. when a tummy tuck is combined wiht a breast augmentation surgery, it is called a mommy makeover.

Thank you for your question. Although it's difficult to tell without a photo, it sounds like your problems would be well-addressed with a tummy tuck. Tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen, tightens the abdominal wall muscles and supportive tissues, and shapes the waistline. I would, however, recommend holding off on surgery until you are sure that you are finished having children. Good luck!

How to get rid of right baby belly pouch after a C-section?
Excess skin won't improve with diet/exercise.
In the vast majority of cases abdominoplasty or mini-abdominoplasty are indicated to correct these problems. Although it’s difficult to make a specific recommendation in any particular patient without a physical examination or pictures, your history suggest that you would benefit from one of these procedures.
It’s therefore important to consult a board certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing these procedures. This surgeon should be able to formulate a treatment plan that addresses your anatomic findings and aesthetic goals.

Tummy Tuck Surgery?
Thank you for the question.
I see many patients like yourself who are very frustrated in that ,despite aggressive diet and exercise, they are not able to get rid of the abdominal wall “pouch”. Unfortunately, sometimes there is no alternative other than acceptance or tummy tuck surgery. Liposuction, in these cases, only leaves patients disappointed.
I was just consultation with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon after you have completed pregnancies.
I hope this helps.
