This 37 year old mother of two is an example of a stretched out abdominal wall, without stretched out hanging skin, and in her case, no amount of diet and exercise will move her muscles back together. So because she needed more muscle tightening, I did a "maxi-mini" tummy tuck, disconnecting her belly button from underneath, rather than cutting around it and then doing a full muscle tightening from ribs to pubic bone, then suturing her belly button back down.
