#FirouzFilms Video: Abdominal Wall Diastasis correction during Tummy Tuck surgery.
What Is Diastasis Recti?
In short, it's a gap in between your right and left abdominal wall muscles that can result in a rounded, protruding belly "pooch." Why Does it Happen?
During the gestational period of pregnancy, connective tissue called the linea alba thins out in response to a mother's change in hormone levels in order to accommodate the enlarging uterus. This is one important way that a mother's body changes to allow a baby to grow in utero.
Once you've delivered your baby, and your hormone levels return to their pre-pregnancy levels, that thinning generally improves. But in many cases the tissues get so stretched out during pregnancy that they lose their elasticity and, therefore, the ability to retract back into position -- kind of like an overstretched rubber band.
How Can I Treat It?
If severe, diastasis may be corrected through surgery, generally done as a tummy tuck with excess skin removal. Surgical repair of diastasis recti should only be done after a woman is sure that she is finished with family building.
