Tummy Tucks for Severe Diastasis

AbdominoplastyDiastasis refers to a condition where the abdominal muscles on either side of the midsection become significantly stretched, leading to a protruding abdomen. Dr. Leber repairs sever diastasis by folding and suturing excess tissue to produce a flatter abdomen and slimmer waistline.

Recovery and Results

While patients typically return home the same day as their abdominoplasty, a few days of bed rest after the procedure is recommended. Discomfort can be managed with oral pain medication, while a compression garment worn after surgery will minimize swelling. Patients usually return to work and daily activities within 1-2 weeks after the procedure.

Results of the tummy tuck can be seen right after the procedure and continue to improve as the abdominal area heals. As long as a healthy weight is maintained after the procedure, tummy tucks are considered a permanent way to regain a firmer, leaner midsection.
