Endoscopic diastasis recti repair?

I am about to undergo and endoscopic umbilical hernia and diastasis recti repair. I am having no skin or fat removed. I will only have incisions around my navel. Will I be hunched over and required to sleep sitting up during recovery like a full abdominoplasty.

Umbilical hernia

Without skin excision there really is no reason for you to have to be flexed.. I flex my pTients after a mini or full TT to take tension off the skin closure not the facial closure
