Tummy tuck repair
From your description and your photos, it looks as though your muscles and fascia are stretched and a tummy tuck will repair them. You have a wide diastasis - chances are you should have a nice tummy tuck result.
Here’s hoping you find this helpful. Have a great day!

Your example shows that exercise does not help much if the rectus muscles are separated. Only abdominoplasty with plication of the rectus muscles can do that. You may end up needed some sort of addition support with Strattice or Seri as mentioned by Dr. Lynam. And I agree with him that some contour abnormality is possible because you have so little padding in the way of fat.
Make sure you surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
