The famous aesthetician Prof . Dr. stating that some pregnant women want their abdominal fat to be removed along with cesarean section, he said, “This is absolutely unacceptable and inadvisable. Many times we hear that abdominal aesthetics are performed under the name of ’maternity aesthetics’. I want to express that this is extremely wrong. It is definitely a situation that should not be considered,” he said.

Antalya MedicalPark JCI Hospital Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery Specialist Prof. Dr. he made important statements by expressing that it is not right for pregnant women to want abdominal aesthetics during childbirth.

Dr. “Sometimes our pregnant patients say, ’my stomach has grown too big, it has expanded, there will be sagging in my stomach after the child is born, I want the fats to be removed by cesarean section’. This is an absolutely unacceptable and inadvisable situation. We hear that abdominal aesthetics are performed under the name of ’maternity aesthetics’. I want to express that this is extremely wrong. It is definitely a situation that should not be considered. During the birth process, due to hormones, the person’s abdomen begins to grow, making room for the child in the abdomen. The abdominal region, which becomes abundant and full of fat after the child is born, gradually transforms again with a reverse transformation over time. In a significant part of our patients who give birth, it becomes completely normal. In some cases, it may become a little flaccid by relaxing.

If the disfigurement of the body after 1 year after giving birth bothers the woman, then tummy tuck surgery, fat removal surgery can be performed. Otherwise, it is not right to lie on the table thinking about having a proper stomach during the birth event. It is absolutely not scientific, ethical, correct.

Without any intervention, a woman’s abdomen will become old again after surgery with the help of body hormones and exercises performed. The woman has given birth to 3 and comes to us for another reason after childbirth. As a plastic surgeon, I can’t see even the slightest trace on her stomach. I even have to ask if you’ve given birth before. It is necessary to give this chance to the body. After giving the body this chance, 1 year has passed, and if there is still sagging in the abdomen, then abdominal aesthetics can be performed if those sagging are the psychology of the person, lowering his self-confidence,” he said.
