Diastasis RectiPosted on June 12, 2017
For most pregnant women diastasis recti is a term that they are unfamiliar with even though this condition can apply to a lot of pregnant women out there.
Diastasis recti is as known as abdominal separation. What does it entail? Basically the muscle that makes up the front wall of the abdominals, otherwise known as the six-pack muscle spreads apart in the middle.
Most of the time the separation occurs because of the uterus pushing against the abdominal wall. This is why it is most common in women who are pregnant. Also the fact that during pregnancy the hormones in the body can soften the connective tissue and allow it to separate more easily. It can also occur in women who have an overabundance of abdominal fat.
Generally, woman who have this condition can get rid of it by talking to a plastic surgeon and having tummy tuck surgery done.
For more information about diastasis recti or having a tummy tuck procedure done please contact Dr. Kim or a plastic surgeon in your area.
