Guadelupe, Congratulations on your five children! However, multiple pregnancies can make the abdomen look stretched out with hanging skin. You can read more about abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) if you click "cosmetic" on the top banner of this webpage. There you can look under abdominoplasty, or if you prefer to read in Spanish you can click on "en espanol" . What procedure might be recommended depends on your particular body shape, extra skin, fatty tissue, and whether the muscles are separated after your pregnancies. Please use the "Find a Surgeon" tool at the top of the webpage to find an ASPS-member board-certified plastic surgeon near you and make an appointment to discuss your issues!

"Disfigurement" after five pregnancies is normal. Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) addresses excess skin & fat (liposuction) and tightens the muscle separation to optimize the patient's mid sectional contour. It is performed as an outpatient, under general anesthesia, and, in general requires about two weeks off work. Results can be life changing.

Dear Guadalupe,

Hello and thank you for your excellent question. Yes, it is possible to improve the appearance of your stomach, even if you have had five C sections. It is best to answer your question during a face-to-face evaluation, when you can discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure, and you can have a physical examination to evaluate for that procedure. I recommend that you find a board-certified, or board-eligible plastic surgeon with whom you are comfortable. Be sure to have all of your questions answered during a face-to-face meeting with your surgeon, and review before and after pictures of similar patients whom have had this procedure. If you have any questions, call our office for assistance. Good luck!
