During pregnancy, the rectus abdominis muscles (abs) stretch to accommodate the growing baby. As they stretch, separation becomes more likely, even in women who engage in core strengthening exercises throughout their pregnancies. This condition, called diastasis recti, can make postpartum toning of the core all the more difficult – and traditional core exercises may actually serve to exacerbate the condition, resulting in herniation, lower back pain, breathing difficulties, and issues with bowel and bladder control.
Orlando plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Greenberg understands the frustrations and challenges diastasis recti can pose. Abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck surgery, can help significantly in these cases by reattaching separated abdominal muscles and producing the ideal foundation for exercises that can further slim, tone, and strengthen the midsection.
You needn’t be an endurance athlete to recognize the importance of a strong core. Your core muscles assist with balance, prevent tension in the back, and keep breathing mechanisms working properly. When they are separated or weakened, all of these benefits can be lost. With abdominoplasty performed at our Winter Park plastic surgery office, Dr. Greenberg can help begin the process of restoration and provide a springboard for a stronger, healthier, and more attractive frame following pregnancy.
