How to Repair Separated Abdominal Muscles Without Tummy Tuck?
Doctor Answers (4)
Separated Tummy Muscls CANNOT be put together without surgery
A tummy tuck with muscle repair of the separation (diastasis) is the ONLY way to bring the muscles together. There are NO nonsurgical treatments or exercises that can do it.
Muscle Separation in Abdomen (rectus diastasis) ALWAYS requires surgery
There is no way to restore a more normal anatomy to the rectus abdominis musculature other than a tummy tuck.
You do not mention why you were deemed not to be a candidate?
Rectus Diastasis Repair
The only way is to open up the skin and plicate the fascia. If you are not a surgical candidate there really is no alternative. Situps and crunches will not affect things.
