Hernia vs Diastasis Recti
it's important to differentiate a hernia from a Diastais Recti. That said, I prefer to repair any diastasis recti At the same time as a concomitant hernia as I believe it improves the outcome of the hernia repair too.
If you have a lot of extra loose skin, - tummy tuck by your plastic surgeon may help fix all of that. Otherwise, if not too much loose skin, I choose robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery with hernia and tummy tuck done at the same time. Short recovery. Three little scars.
