Tummy Tuck and Hernia Repair After 3 C-sections - I Get a Lot of Compliments

I had three c-sections resulting in an umbilical hernia that needed repairing. When having the ultrasound for the hernia I was diagnosed with diastasis recti; this condition occurs when the main abdominal muscles (called the rectus abdominus) begin to pull apart. The left and right sides of this muscle separate, leaving a gap. I wanted that repaired as well.
I was excited to have my figure back, but nervous to have surgery. I had a young baby and was hesitant because I would not be able to pick him up for 6 weeks.
I used Dr. S because I was told he had experience with this type of surgical procedure. He was an excellent surgeon. He explained all of the procedures ahead of time and my post-operative care was excellent. I feel great!
