Abdominoplasty is not advisable with
caesarean section because of high incidence of complications. We have changed
the technique of proper abdominoplasty to ultrarapid limited dissection
abdominoplasty in 25 women undergoing caesarean section successfully and found
that there was no incidence of any complication usually described with proper
abdominoplasty, and we recommend
that limited dissection abdominoplasty can be combined with caesarean section.
