Getting a Tummy Tuck to Correct Diastasis Recti

Published on November 18, 2016 by

Diastasis recti is a weakening of the muscles along the abdominal wall. The muscles will stretch and separate from each other, which causes sagging and creates unwanted bulges in the abdominal area. Diastasis recti is a common problem faced by as many as two thirds of women after pregnancy.

A tummy tuck corrects diastasis recti by rejoining, tightening, and reinforcing the internal structures of the abdomen. During a tummy tuck, the muscles of the abdomen are reconnected and tightened with internal sutures. These sutures provide the additional support necessary to restore the contours of the abdominal area.

Because diet and exercise cannot reconnect the separated muscles in the abdomen, a tummy tuck is the only solution for correcting diastasis recti.
