The normal tummy trimming package can only be done after 5 month as hard technique massage is employed around the tummy area. Doing the massage after the 2nd week, with proper care, gel and binding, would definitely help as tummy is still "soft and manageable". Doing it any later than 5 week, very little result can be seen as tummy is already "hard" which require harder stroke which is not possible due to the layers of cuts underneath. The advise given by gynae is to be on the safe side as not many therapists know how to handle c-sect effectively. Some therapist who dare to do, dont even wrap cos they dont know the proper technique hence not achieving the result required. Great care should be given to the type of binder used, the oil and technique are all very important.
