Robotic repair of diastasis recti and umbilical hernia? No tummy tuck! (photos)

My general surgeon wants to go in with the new robot to repair my umbilical hernia and diastasis recti! Everything I read says this is not a good way to repair the muscles. He won't do the tummy tuck and said since he can get my Ins. to approve the muscle repair with the hernia to do it this way then do a Mini tuck later. Question 1. Is robotic repair successful for DR? 2. What is recovery time like since not cutting me from hip to hip? 3. How bad is this going to look without the tummy tuck??
