Can I have a mini-tummy tuck during a C-section?

I'm due to give birth to my second child in 6 weeks, and the craziest idea just passed my mind. Can I have both a C-section and a mini tummy tuck on the same day? That would be absolutely amazing.

You could, but it is best to wait until your abdomen is back to its original size for best results.

You could but you wouldnt get the "bang for your buck" you would be looking for.  Your abdomen wont be back to its normal size because your uterus will still be enlarged for a few weeks after birth.   You wouldnt be able to get the abdomen as tight as you would want.  I would wait until about 3-6 months after the baby is born.  Congratulations and good luck!

You will certainly find someone to do it.  Most will recommend for your abdomen to heal from the c-section at least 6 months.  You may be pleasantly surprised how your skin will retract and the muscles "go back to normal."
