During pregnancy, the tissues of the abdomen are placed under enormous strain. The rapid expansion of the abdomen can result in a condition known as diastasis recti, where the muscles of the abdomen become weakened and begin to separate. This creates a noticeable pooch, or bulge, in the abdomen.
The only way to correct diastasis recti is through surgery. Abdominoplasty is the ideal procedure for correcting the muscles of the abdomen. The procedure will tightly suture the muscles along the abdominal wall closer together to create a tight and flat abdominal area. Liposuction will also be performed to remove any excess fat in order to ensure your abdomen has a well-toned appearance.
If you are struggling with the appearance of your abdomen due to diastasis recti, contact Holcomb – Kreithen Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation for your abdominoplasty procedure.
