How to Fix Protrusion Left After Umbilical Hernia Repair?
I am 9 mos postpartum (twins). This was my second pregnancy. They were big (7 lbs) and carried to term. Amazingly, I have not a single stretch mark and only a very, very small (maybe 1/4 inch) of extra skin only visible if I bend over and near the c section scar.
I had an umbilical hernia repaired, and my OB says she put a small diastasis recti back together during the c section. But I still have this protrusion that makes me look about 5 mos pregnant. What the heck is going on and how can I fix it?
I don't want a tummy tuck. Can the diastasis recti be repaired without one, i.e. no scary hip to hip scar?

You may be a candidate for a mini-tummy tuck
Check yourself for a diastasis (muscle separation) after pregancy especially multiples.
