Diastasis recti, commonly referred to as separated abdominal muscles, is a common condition, especially in mothers who have had one or multiple children. This common side effect of pregnancy occurs when the abdominal muscles separate, resulting in a bulge in your abdomen that just won't go away despite a proper diet and exercise regimen.
Thankfully, a tummy tuck performed by Dr. Hall can resolve this issue for good. During a tummy tuck, in which Dr. Hall makes a low hip to hip incision below the bikini line for full access to your abdominal muscles, he can instantly tell by sight if your abdominal muscles are separated. If they are, he can repair them back up tightly to get rid of that belly bulge for good!*
Stitching up your abdominal muscles is good for tummy tuck patients for multiple reasons. From an aesthetic standpoint, it provides patients with a flatter, tighter abdomen without that annoying bulge in their belly. And from a functional viewpoint, it gives men and women the ability to get a tighter and stronger core, allowing them to better exercise and get in better general health.
While most patients may not recognize a tummy tuck for its ability to tighten up separated abdominal muscles, they most likely know it as a solution to rid their bellies of loose, sagging and unwanted abdominal skin. This condition frequently occurs after pregnancy or multiple pregnancies, significant weight loss, or the aging process. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Hall works diligently to remove and excise this unwanted abdominal skin, giving you a smoother, tighter and trimmer appearance that you'll be proud to show off when wearing a swimsuit or tight-fitting clothing.
Being a resident who desires a flatter abdomen doesn't automatically qualify you as a patient of Dr. Hall's. Because your overall health, wellbeing, and safety is his top priority, he carefully screens each potential surgical candidate he consults with to determine if:
