Is a Vertical Incision Required for Repair of Diastasis Recti with Umbilical Hernia?
I have diastasis recti and an umbilical hernia that developed post-partum. I am 5'3" and weigh 98 pounds. I am planning abdominoplasty with hernia repair. I saw a surgeon who said that a vertical incision would give the best results for the abdominoplasty because there is not much skin to work wit. Is it possible to correct this without cutting vertically down the abdomen?
