Ask OB/GYN to "pull me tight" after c-section?
A friend has been talking to me about a concept I’d never heard of, which is your OB/GYN pulling your skin and abdominal muscles tights instead of leaving it loose to tighten back on it’s own after a c-section. She told me it usually is a more painful healing process for the woman but really helps in getting your old body back. I’m going to have a c-section with the last child we’re having in a few months and I’m on the fence about whether or not I should ask my doctor for this extra tuck. Since he’s not a plastic surgeon, it seems like the women’s stomachs could come out lopsided or just wierd looking.
Has anyone performed a c-section and know the pros/cons to this? Or has anyone had this done before and have any input? I’m interested because our 2 children will only be 18 months apart so my stomach has gone through a lot in the past 2 years! I look better than I expected, but I’d still appreciate a little extra help in that area!
