    Yeah I know women who are super thin but cannot move the overhang from their c/section. The only women I know with a overhang that isn't from a c/s are all overweight.

    Has anyone ever thought about asking your Ob if he/she would be willing to cut a bit of excess skin out immediately after the c-sec?

    I know of one country ob who is willing to do this for my sister with her final baby

    The reason for the 'overhang' on anyone, has nothing to do with using your stomach muscles enough, or about having had a c-section. The reason for the apron is just due to the way a persons skin reacts to trauma (stretching is the trauma in this instance). Much the same as people scar differently when an incision is made, a person's skin regains elasticity differently too.

    I'd be interested whether she'd be paying for it though. As I quoted earlier - Medicare does not cover abdominoplasty when it's performed within 12months of the last pregnancy

    No she doesn't have to pay for it he's willing to do it for free for her last pregnancy. I googled a bit and other Ob's have done this too, like a mini tummy tuck, very conservative, generally not extending the length of the scar and taking about 1 inch of skin either side. It's not a real tummy tuck, but better than nothing!

    My grandma, mum and I all suffer an over hang and all of us had VB.

    My mum still to this day would love a tummy tuck, her over hang has always effected how she felt about herself.

    I am the same about mine, I am currently back to a size 10 and the over hang looks worse than ever, I hate it, I almost look better fat so it fills out.

    And I have also heard of obs removing a little extra if requested so as to help the over hang.
