I recently had a abdominoplasty with ventral hernia repair using muscle tightening and permacol.

I had the surgery to correct the massive diastasis rectus after having four very very large babies (over 10 pounds each). I am very fit and active and did not need any liposuction.

I had the procedure here in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. Things are progressing normally I suppose, my belly button doesn't look great though, but I'm seeing the surgeon tomorrow to address this. I'm not sure if I'd recommend this, it is quite a lot pain to deal with.

My belly button isn't healing in my opinion. It's still quite pink and a bit weepy, but doesn't seem to be infected. my long scar seems fine, no pinkness, or weeping. Is this normal?

Dr. Peter Hodgkinson

If your diastasis was as severe as mine, then yes. I didn't have the surgery for cosmetic reasons though.
