Muscle Repair Vs. Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck and muscle repair
- Muscle repair of the diastasis recti is routinely done with a tummy tuck.
- It is not clear what operation you had. Incisions for tummy tucks and mini-tummy tucks are usually hidden in the groin crease.
- Ask your surgeon for a copy of your tummy tuck operative notes. Review what you paid for and what was done.
- Before doing more, get a second opinion from a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. What has happened so far is not a standard approach. Best wishes.

With a minitummytuck is quite difficult to reach all the way up.
I also notice a small vertical scar on your lower abdomen, why?
Sorry to say, but for correcting this you would need to go through a Tummytuck again, and while you are at it I would recommend you do some lipo on your waist to improve the final result even further.
Hope this helps.
