Has Pregnancy Left You with a Noticeable Stomach Pooch?

Published on August 18, 2017

During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles will be placed under a lot of strain as the abdomen expands. Because of this, some women will develop a condition known as diastasis recti. Women who suffer from this condition experience a weakening and separation of the abdominal muscles, which creates a noticeable “pooch.”

Dieting and exercising are not effective options for treating diastasis recti, because they cannot rejoin and tighten the abdominal muscles. The only way to properly treat the issue is by surgically tightening the muscles along the abdominal wall using internal sutures.

This is why the tummy tuck procedure is an excellent choice for correcting diastasis recti. During a tummy tuck, the abdominal muscles are tightly sutured closer together to eliminate any bulging so that the stomach has a flat and even surface.
