You can have your Csection scar removed
It is a simple matter to remove your Csection scar when you have your TT. The surgeon can easily put the new incision just below your Csection scar.
When you meet your PS just express your desires to him.
C-section and TT scar
Hello there. Most surgeons remove the C-section scar by placing a longer, low-lying scar to allow adequate removal of excess skin, and fat. Hope this helps. Good luck.
C section vs Tummy tuck incision?
Many patients who undergo tummy tucks have
had prior C-sections. Usually the old C-section scar is removed during the
tummy tuck. The scar from a tummy tuck is longer than that from a C-section. The length depends on individual anatomy and the required extent of the procedure.
I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon
certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the
American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are
comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with the plastic surgeon and
have a consultation to see what is safe and makes the most sense for you.

Remove C-sxn scar
You can absolutely put the incision down low for a tummy tuck scar. The c-sxn scar comes out along with all of the skin below your umbilicus.
I appreciate your question.
I usually put the incision lower than the c-section to remove that and the scar tissue
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!
Tummy tuck incision/scar vs C section
The tummy tuck incision should always go below the C-section scar. That will allow the C-section scar to be removed along with the abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) segment.
Tummy tuck incision
Thanks for your question. It is not necessary to have photos for your type of question. I always excise (cut out) the horizontal C-section scar when doing an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Normally, the scar goes down below the c-section scar and upward on each side as you approach the hip bones.
Best of luck.
Tummy tuck question
Thank you for your question. Your tummy talk incision does not have to go through your C-section scar. The most normal situation in my practice is to place the tummy tuck incision below previous C-section scar, thus removing the C-section scar as part of the abdominoplasty. All of this will depend on your body habitus and the actual location of your C-section scar. Schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon who can examine you and review your options with you. Good luck.
Yes C section scar removed with Tummy tuck
Thank you for the question. In almost all cases the C section scar is removed with the tummy tuck. So the tummy tuck scar will be lower and longer to remove the excess skin.
C section vs Tummy tuck incision
Thank you for your question. Usually we remove c section scar at the time of TT so that they don't have two scars. Also depending on where your C- section scar presently. Pl consult PS for evaluation.
