How long after a C-section before getting a Tummy Tuck?

One month ago today I gave birth to my third son, via C-section. I do not intend to have any more children and would like to get a tummy tuck asap. Is there a certain amount of time I need to wait to get a tummy tuck after a C-section?

Different surgeons will give you different time frames but you should wait until the skin excess shrinks back as much as it will on its own and any stretch marks present mature. That way your surgeon will be operating on a stable condition rather than one that is in the process of resolving. That could take as long as 6 months from the date of his birth. Certainly, the longer you wait the more reliable your tummy tuck result will be.
