Does Mini-abdominoplasty Increase Functional Strength?
I am a 42 yo female - s/p twin pregnancy 8 years - 5"9 145 lbs. I am scheduled for a consult regarding a breast lift but considering adding on a mini abdominoplasty vs. Liposuction. I would expect a good cosmetic result from the procedure but I am wondering if it increases the strength on the Rectus or transversus muscles? I have done pilates for years and simply can't get the strength to do many of the core exercises. I modify exercises and keep trying but perhaps a repair is the way to go
