Diastasis repair and loosening
Generally speaking, the tightest time of a muscle repair is immediately after surgery. When we are doing a tummy tuck the fascia ( the layer over the muscles) is brought together with sutures. We tighten this as much as possible. Over the first six months after surgery the repair stretches a bit and then stabilizes. At the same time, the swelling of the skin and fat decrease so the shape takes on its more long-term appearance.
