What next? I have a hernia with distastis recti and I was wonder if a tummy tuck is the only way to get the bulge fixed? (photo)

There are numerous questions to be answered
In-person examination will be needed.
Thanks for your question and photo.
Without direct examination, it is difficult to provide a meaningful recommendation.
Tummy tuck is a great procedure if 1) you have reached a stable goal weight, 2) you are medically, physically, and socially optimized, and 3) you have excess extra-abdominal skin/fat without excessive intra-abdominal fat.
Please consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to learn about your candidacy for tummy tuck.
You need a focused plan and determination to follow it
