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.
