After 3.5 years would it be possible for muscles to come apart after a Tummy tuck?

Muscles after tummy tuck

Frequently, surgeons use permanent suture to place the muscles back together.  Even if they don't, theoretically, the muscles should scar back together at the midline.  It is possible to stretch them back out.  If you had a forceful pop and then a bulge, you may have broken the suture/scar.
