I have Elhers Danols Syndrome, want to get diastasis repaired. How can repair be reinforced besides mesh?
Doctor Answers 2
Repair of diastasis
- The risk of mesh is infection requiring removal of the infected mesh,
- It will probably work better than Alloderm as it does not absorb,
- Infection is less common when the mesh is put behind the muscle, not on top of it,
- This makes the surgery longer and more delicate but is probably a good idea.
- Best wishes.
A tummy tuck can be done as a solitary procedure. Many times the results are enhanced by adding liposuction to the hip and love handle area. A tummy tuck is also done in combination with a breast augmentation in a mommy makeover.
Please find an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and member of the Aesthetic Society using the Smart Beauty Guide. These Plastic Surgeons can guide you on all aspects of facial surgery, breast augmentation and body procedures including tummy tucks or mommy makeovers!
