Exercise for c-section overhang?
8

paranountain · 01/05/2018 19:31

Any suggestions please?

My last c -section was 9 years ago. I've lost weight and am fairly fit and healthy. I run, swim, gym, go to classes etc.

But I'm wondering if there's anything specific for this please?

I'm trying to drink loads of water, stopped alcohol. Moisturise daily. (This is done with the intention of creating/preserving good skin integrity)

Anything else?

Alas I don't think exercise will reduce it - I think surgery is probably the best option.

If the overhang is mostly due to fat you could try coolsculpting, I haven’t tried it but my surgeon told me it’s one of the few non-surgical treatments that actually works and is worth the cost. If the overhang is skin nothing will shift it but surgery. I had a tummy tuck 7 weeks ago after deliberating for years, bloody hard to recover from but delighted with my result and wish i’d done it sooner.

I think a combination of lowering body fat percentage to around 20% or below and exercise to strengthen the core muscles is your best bet. There's no guarantee it would be totally effective but it would give you the best possible appearance to the area without surgery.

I’m going for coolsculpting next week for this reason. I also exercise every day. If that doesn’t improve it then I’ll have to get saving!
