c-section after tummy tuck

Hello, I have had a tummy tuck 5 years ago. The surgery was performed abroad and I have been unsuccessful at getting the Dr's notes. I now require a C-section since my Dr. wants to remove a large ovarian cyst at the same time. She says without the Dr's notes she will most likely need to make a vertical C-section incision. Is there any way to know if she could go through the TT incision without the Dr's notes?

Yes it is very possible to do the C-Section through the Tummy Tuck incision.
If your OB is not sure, she can ask a Plastic Surgeon to open and close the wound for her. (more)
