Tummy tuck???

Hi Doc
Is it possible to have a tummy tuck at the same time as a caesar? Would the gynae be able to perform it, or would one need a plastic surgeon. Thank you!

This would usually not be a good idea as the skin and muscles are stretched from the pregnancy and any surgery at this time would chnage the appearance when things get back to normal. Plastic surgeons do this sort of surgery and, as it is cosmrtic, most medical aids would not cover it.

Best wishes

i would also like to know if it is at an extra cost and would medical aid cover it, if not, what is the cost involved?
