    My friend just had a c-section and they cut away the bit of extra skin before stitching her back up! i thought they did this with everyone!

    I'm sorry to say it, but there is no way to get rid of it, except for cosmetic surgery :(

    i had a c section on my first 9 years ago and it was always there but wasn't too bad after i lost the weight. now though after my son which i had a normal birth it is much worse :cry: i hate it. i'm just hoping that i can lose the weight again and that it won't be too bad.

    Unless you loose allot allot of weigth and get those flat tummies it might go away but you will always have a tiny pouch :(

    You could try reverse crunchers to tone it but I'm pretty sure it doesn't go away

    After my first, I never had that pouch. After Jayden, I had a tiny pouch. I wasn't happy with it, but looking back, I was happier with my body then then I am at this present moment. LOL

    There's nothing you can do about it. It really is excess skin.

    Darn! I wish I would have thought to ask my gynecologist if this could be done when delivering Chase. Too late now.
