I had a massive baby (4kg and I am, or used to be, little), put on a massive amount of weight in the pregnancy (25kg+) and had an emergency c-section. Pregnancy resulted in a massive stomach separation (I could get my whole hand in there easily). No flap here, not sure how I avoided that.

Like a PP my stomach is not quite what it used to be but that is mainly due to cupcakes (or in my case biscuits).

2 c-sections no flap. I do have a bit of pudge on my lower belly that wasn't there before, however I had two 9 pounders in under 3 years and as I am losing weight it is firming up. The scar is barely visible, 18 months after my second baby.
Good luck!

2 giant babies (4kg and 4.6kg) on my scrawny body, 2 vaginal  births, and my tummy is very flappy. That's probably more because I like cake than anything else. When I went off sugar my flappiness reduced a lot.

Yep, I've had one c-section and I have a flap/overhang thing going on. It's going away though. I think it's partly genetics too, my mum had a c-section and has an overhang.

2 c sections and no flap either. Have some dimpling and stretch marks and tummy definitely looks different but still fairly flat.

I have a muffin top. It's nowhere near the incision. There's no flap where the scar is.

What is this flap you all speak of? Are you talking about your abdomen? Don't most people have their c-section scar quite low (in the pubic hair)?

I have a massive overhang, kind of looks like a reverse shelf.  I'm not very big but have always had a flabby stomach due to being chubby as a teen.  

No amount of weight loss will remove it in my case,  I think it would require lipo and a whole lot of other work.

1 cs twin birth but had massive polyhydraminos so was the size of full term triplets at 27 weeks.  

Great scar can hardly tell but abdo muscles are split and have a “pooch” not too bad but definitely a shelf.
