Painful hernia and tummy tuck?

I have 3 children. I developed a hernia with my second pregnancy tho not painful. I just had the 3rd child and its extremely painful do do anything. Its on my bellybutton. I have been to three doctors and all say I have diastatis. The last surgeon I saw will do both the hernia repair and suggested a tummy tuck. My husband keeps asking if they can just repair the abdominal wall without cutting the skin making it a tummy tuck? I was under the impression that its only one surgery to do all of it. Is this even possible?
