Diastasis Recti Repair: Restoring Abdominal Strength and Function
Diastasis Recti is a condition that occurs when the abdominal muscles separate, causing a visible bulge or gap in the midline of the abdomen. This condition commonly affects women during and after pregnancy, but it can also occur in men and individuals who have experienced significant weight fluctuations. Diastasis Recti can lead to functional impairments, such as weakened core muscles, lower back pain, and poor posture.
Understanding Diastasis Recti Repair
Diastasis Recti Repair is a surgical procedure aimed at restoring the strength and function of the abdominal muscles. Dr. Karan Chopra, a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, specializes in this procedure and offers it as part of his comprehensive range of plastic surgery services.
During the Diastasis Recti Repair procedure, Dr. Chopra carefully brings the separated abdominal muscles back together, eliminating the gap and restoring a more toned and tightened appearance to the abdomen. This surgery is often combined with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck or liposuction, to achieve optimal results.
The Benefits of Diastasis Recti Repair
Diastasis Recti Repair offers numerous benefits for individuals struggling with the physical and aesthetic effects of abdominal muscle separation. Some of the key benefits include:
- Improved Core Strength: By repairing the separated abdominal muscles, this procedure helps restore core strength and stability, allowing individuals to engage in physical activities with greater ease.
- Enhanced Posture: Diastasis Recti can contribute to poor posture, which can lead to back pain and discomfort. Repairing the abdominal muscles can help improve posture and alleviate associated symptoms.
