Repair of diastasis without full tummy tuck.
It is possible to have a kind of tummy tuck with a limited incision above the pubis through which the rectus can be repaired. Look for surgeons in your area who does this kind of tummy tuck.

Repair Diastasis Without Tummy Tuck?
The traditional way of repairing a diastasis is as part of a tummy tuck. However in your case there is not a skin redundancy problem. A diastasis can be repaired endoscopically (through very small incisions), however it is so rarely done that very few have the necessary experience to do it safely.
In Texas, I am sure this procedure is available. Go to the internet. Just be sure whomever you select has experience with this particular technique.
