C-Tucks: Genius Idea or a Scary Trend?

Genius Idea or a Scary Trend

Women gain quite a lot of weight during pregnancy and they are eager to lose it right after the child birth. It is now possible for women to get their pre-pregnancy body shortly after giving birth. A procedure called C-Tuck has made it easier for women to get rid of the weight gained during pregnancy. C-Tuck basically means undergoing both a caesarean delivery and tummy tuck at the same time. It means you wont have to undergo two separate surgeries and you will achieve both the goals with one-time anesthetic administration and a single recovery period. Therefore, c-tuck seems to be an ideal choice for pregnant women.

C-tuck is not a very common procedure but many women consider it a better and convenient idea to undergo both treatments at once. Let’s understand the procedure in detail.

How is a C-tuck Done?

C-tuck includes performing both the surgeries on the same day in the same timeframe. Firstly, a C-section is performed to deliver the baby. When a baby is born through a caesarean surgery, your plastic surgeon would be there to perform a tummy tuck procedure. The excess skin and fat are removed from the abdomen and stitches are made. It may take up to one or two hours.

What Makes C-tuck a Great Idea?

The benefits of a C-tuck include;

  • You will undergo all the pain and discomfort at one time
  • You will not have to deal with nervousness of a separate surgery
  • You will get your pre-baby body back right after the delivery
  • There will be one recovery period for both caesarean delivery and a tummy tuck
  • You will have to take off from work for once

What Makes C-tuck a Scary Trend?

A C-tuck procedure is not very popular and some women consider it as a scary trend. Very few women have the courage to undergo C-tuck, here’s why;

  • It can be more painful
  • The recovery period will be lengthy and uncomfortable as compared to a tummy tuck
  • It is recommended that you undergo a tummy tuck when your weight is stable
  • The results of the C-tuck are not as effective as a simple tummy tuck. You might get disappointed by the results.
  • There are a lot of changes that a woman goes through during pregnancy period which is why it is recommended that you delay a tummy tuck surgery for a few months after the delivery.
