Q: “I do have a cesarean scar from child birth. This scar was also used when I had cancer surgery. Will another surgery affect this area? Right now it appears the area about the excess skin and above my belly button has a bulge, is that because of the excess fat? I work out daily for 90 mins at the gym and then walk another 3-5 miles most days. I am short and over weight I would say about 25 lbs. What is your recommendation?…

Dr. Yovino’s Answer: You’ll likely benefit from a tummy tuck but I’ll need to see some photos. The c-section / cancer surgery scar is almost always removed with the procedure. The abdomen is flattened from your breast bone to the pubic bone.
