tummy tuck and c section

I recently had my first child via C-section and have excess skin from my pregnancy (6 months ago). I am planning to have 2-3 more children and will likely have C-sections then as well. I was wondering if you ever performed tummy tucks in the same procedure as a C-section?

Kenkel: I am not a big fan of combing this with a delivery
It increases your risk for infection and having a tummy tuck at the same time will make it difficult to be a mom.
Finally, you will be at a heavier weight at delivery
As you lose your “baby weight” your skin will sag again so your result will not be ideal.
