Diastasis Recti Repair

Diastasis Recti Repair

When a woman is pregnant her abdominal muscles get pushed apart by the baby. Most of the time these close together after the delivery. Sometimes they stay spread apart. That spread can cause a weakness in the abdominal wall and contribute to abdomen projection.

Woodglen Aesthetics offers diastasis recti repair to surgically bring the separated muscles together and prevent weakness and instability in the abdominal wall. It is usually done at the same time as a tummy tuck. Some of the other potential physical complications associated with diastasis recti include:

  • Abdominal protrusion
  • Loss of abdominal muscle contraction
  • Loss of strength in the core area
  • Loss of balance
  • Insufficient internal organ support
  • Back problems
  • Umbilical hernia
