What is Diastasis Recti?

What is Diastasis Recti?

During your pregnancy, you may be unhappy with how large your tummy appears but still comforted by the fact that once you have your child, you work to restore the pre-pregnancy look of your tummy.

Unfortunately, some women develop a condition known as diastasis recti that prevents them from restoring the flat appearance of their tummy, no matter how much they try.

Diastasis recti occurs when the abdominal muscles become separated due to the rapid expansion that occurs in the area during pregnancy. These muscles are not longer able to maintain the flat appearance of your stomach, which results in a noticeable stomach bulge, or “pooch.”

At Franklin Skin and Laser, board-certified surgeon Dr. Steven Bengelsdorf can perform a tummy tuck procedure in order to tighten the muscles of the abdomen and restore the toned and flat appearance of your tummy. If you are struggling with diastasis recti, contact us to schedule a consultation.
