Are you sick of that maddening, frustrating C-Section shelf?
That extra fold of skin that hangs down over your C-Section scar that’s annoying and embarrassing.
Many women look to additional surgery to get rid of a C-Section shelf but if more surgery isn’t what you want don’t despair, there IS help.
How To Get Rid of A C-Section Shelf?
A C-Section shelf involves addressing two things; fat and loose skin.
To help with fat loss and tightening that loose skin these are the 3 things that work together that will amaze you:
- C-Panty (Incision Shaper)
I know, I know, diet and exercise isn’t what you wanted to hear but there are some specific do’s and don’t’s that actually make these work together for getting rid of your C-Section shelf.
Diet eliminates fat. Fat is not entirely the problem with respect to a C-Section shelf but it helps to trim the area of as much fat as possible.
Now by dieting I don’t mean starving yourself. That rarely works for any body toning and it can contribute to loss of muscle mass, which is a bad thing for toning your shelf.
So never skip a meal.
Instead reduce your fat intake. Eat recommended portions and get into the habit of giving your body time to feel full.
Also consistency is key. Don’t start a diet one week and go off it the next. That won’t work either.
Start with a low fat plan that won’t make you feel deprived. Health magazine has some great low fat sample memus that are a great start and the foods are super appetizing.
Walk, Don’t Crunch
A C-Section shelf is comprised of loose skin. Exercise is important because it strengthens your weak muscles which works to tighten the loose skin around your incision.
I don’t recommend sit-ups and crunches for the first few months after your C-Section. Doing abdominal exercises too soon after surgery are not only dangerous they can also be ineffective if you are not completely healed internally.
No one ever believes me when I say that. They want something more complicated or difficult.
If you think it has to be complicated or hard to be effective, that’s ‘stinkin’ thinkin‘ my friend.
Simply targeting those muscles effectively and being consistent with it is what works.
And walking works for me. Committing to just 20 minutes a day is all you need to achieve positive results.
If weather permits get outside with baby. If you can’t get out use a treadmill. I STILL use my Horizon compact treadmill like the one in the picture. It sits in my office and I use it whenever I’m short on time or just can’t get outside.
I Love, love, love it!
Losing your C-Section shelf won’t happen overnight, so you need to stay motivated. To help you look good in the mean time, wear a compression garment like the C-Panty to give you a smooth, slimming look.
The C-Panty is the best of its kind because it also helps diminish your C-Section Shelf. It provides front pelvic compression with an interior medical grade silicone panel that sits over your incision to speed healing & reduce the appearance of your scar.
That the exact combination that supports and flattens the bulge around your incision.
“C-Panty really works. They’re comfortable, and really help reduce that classic “c-section shelf” as well as help that incision fade” – PW
With CPanty you don’t need scar creams, hospital panties, belly wraps or binders. It’s the all-in-one perfect solution.
C-panty is a comfortable slimming panty and is OB/GYN recommended.
So there you have it my friend.
The combination of diet, walking and compression are what worked for me and my C-Section shelf is gone
Try it, I think you’ll be pleased with the results.
Here’s to a more beautiful, slimmer you – and no more surgery
