Diastasis Recti and Tummy Tuck Recovery Checklist

Considering a Tummy Tuck

Having twins is a blessing, but the aftermath can be severe on a woman’s body, particularly the abdominal area. The skin and muscles that stretched during pregnancy can remain stretched or even sag after delivery. Many women experience Diastasis recti (also known as abdominal separation or rectus diastasis) is a medical condition that occurs when the left and right sides of the rectus abdominal muscles (the “six-pack” muscles) spread apart at the linea alba (the connective tissue that runs down the center of the abdomen).


A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, can help women restore their pre-pregnancy figure by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the abdominal muscles. This procedure can provide women with newfound confidence and eliminate any self-consciousness they may have felt about their post-pregnancy bodies. A tummy tuck can be life-changing on your confidence.
