Pregnancy is a gruelling process that takes a toll on the woman’s body. Some mummies may find that their tummy bulges cannot be removed no matter how much they exercise or diet. This is especially so for women who have had multiple pregnancies and have excess loose skin around their tummies and separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti).
The abdominal muscles naturally separate during pregnancy to accommodate your growing baby. However, they do not naturally close up after childbirth, resulting in a condition called rectus diastasis, or diastasis recti. Diastasis recti can result in reduction in core strength and stability, and some women find this can cause functional problems.
Repairing the diastasis is an integral part of a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck procedure will also remove excess skin, stretch marks and fat from your lower abdomen.
