Last year in January I had Dr. Janna Cole repair a major bulge that had occurred in my linea alba. Her method of repair was to do an incision (like that for abdominoplasty) and lift the skin up like a pup tent and sew up the diastasis Recti.
Part of post recovery required me to have two drain tubes that she removed after 6 days because I was very lean & she was concerned about the tubes adhering to my dermal layer.

I know Anchorage limited so please save yourself thousands of dollars and go out of Alaska and find a doctor who gives a cares about the work they do and the follow up care with their patients.
Dr. Cole's bedside manner is very good. She is very good at breast augmentations however she really needs to improve with the work she does on the stomach. Whether it's fixing an umbilical hernia, performing abdominoplasty, or repairing diastasis recti, the belly is not her prime media. 2/5/13 update: she botched a good friends augmentation in bad way! Save yourself time and money, fly out of Alaska to get your procedure done.
