Unfortunately, after having a baby your body does change even in appearences. Vitamin E oil does help for the stretch marks and the scar marks you have from a c-section. But the saggy skin, that is another story. You need to do some exercise to get rid of the sagging part. Also you can not expect to get the body back you had before because so many changes have taken place even if you get the weight back. Your hips have stretched out from carrying a child to term and other areas changed as well. You can not expect things to be like they were before the baby. You just deal with them the best you can and be glad you are back to your pre-baby weight. Not all women get to do that.

It will also help reduce the appearance you have of any scaring from your c-section which is also a plus :)

Yes it is normal and no it won't really ever go back to the exact way it looked before however you can buy liquid vitamin e oil. vitamin e repairs your skin. you use it like lotion and apply it to problem areas over your body. you can buy a bottle for 2 dollars at any dollar general or family dollar store. You will find it in the lotion section and because it is an oil you don't need a whole lot so a small bottle should last you a while
