Following pregnancy, especially after multiple births or large babies, there can be abdominal laxity due to widening of the abdominal muscles. This is called rectus diastasis.
Patients will normally notice a bulge and this can be especially noticeable when doing straight leg raising exercises or sit ups.
The treatment of choice is to surgically repair this widening in a procedure called rectus plication.
This is often done in combination with a mini-tummy tuck or a full abdominoplasty during a muumy makeover. The choices of treatment will be determined during your consultation with Dr Rory.
