Are c-sections in plus size women more complicated ?
Cesareans are usually not lengthy surgeries no matter the size of the patient. They also cause very few problems in the vast majority of cases.
One issue that rarely comes up is when the woman has a lot of fat in the abdominal wall. The thickness of the wall makes it difficult to see the abdomen and have a clear view of what you’re doing during surgery. The patient can experience more blood loss because you are cutting through a thicker layer of tissue with more blood vessels and the bleeding can interfere with the view in the abdomen. However this is the issue for more obese women.
