    Oh the poor thing! Right down to her vagina?? Yes that would have to come under mental health, especially if she's trying everything including starving herself to get rid of it. I think things like this should be covered. Thankfully when i was at my skinniest, my skin was tight but kinda sagged still and and a slight lip/bulge at the crease.....now that I've had 2 more kids I really don't know if it's worse until I lose the weight again (which I'm at the process of doing....no sagginess yet becasue the fat poofs it out LOL. I couldn't imagine being your friend....I'd seriously look into it for her the poor thing - that's just not right, seems like genetics played her a really bad card there to have it sagging that much

    I do agree that whether it's a c/s or vb, if it's effecting your mental or physical health you should be at least partially covered. I didn't realise it was common from natural births as well so I've learnt something. All the mums I know IRL who have had vb's don't have the apron but the c/s mums do so I guess I based it on that.

    Maybe it's more common for c-sections mums delirium? Or maybe c-section mums wouldn't use their stomach muscles as quickly as natural mums? Although I don't know how that would affect the skin...hmmm One of those mysteries I guess.

    God I've had 3 Ceasars and no tummy tuck here - I have alot of flabby skin left over! :-/ you think that by the third they'd just cut the excess skin off anyway wouldn't you? There's no feeling in it, it's gone numb, and so stretched it flags down... Oh god how I hate what c sections do to your body but is there much point in sewing up the skin when it's stretched and floppy iykwim anyway wouldn't they get a Better stitch and result if the skin actually fit to size to sew it back together instead of being so stretched out???

    It does seem rather odd doesn't it....but then maybe the reason they don't do it is because the skin is a lot floppier just after birth and they don't know how much it would retract. It'd be awful if they cut it off to fit, sewed it up then it all started retracting.....ouch!

    Perhaps because plastic surgeons don't deliver babies and ob's don't do plastic surgery.
    I would also assume they would want to wait until the uterus was it's normal size before doing a tummy tuck.

    As for a breast lift, my friend who's had 5 children wanted one after BF all of them and she had to pay the whole amount herself. The surgeon said her's wasn't medically necessary.
    Yup, just have to be necessary, and within 6 years of your last child with NO more kids on the way)
    My tummy tuck is needed for medical reasons (I have a bad abdominal separation) and my boob lift is needed for my mental health, as I have a body image disorder and history of eating disorders.
