Can you have other cosmetic procedures with laparoscopic repair of Diastasis recti?
Diastasis recti is a common condition that occurs when the anterior abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy or due to obesity or other factors. Laparoscopic repair of diastasis recti is a new minimally invasive surgical procedure to restore anatomical location of the anterior abdominal muscles and improve the strength and function of the core muscles. While this procedure can be performed on its own, some patients may choose to combine it with other cosmetic procedures to achieve their desired results.
One of the most common procedures that patients choose to combine with laparoscopic repair of diastasis recti is liposuction. Liposuction can help to remove excess fat from the abdominal, flank and back regions which can improve the appearance of the body and help to create a more toned and defined look. This can be especially beneficial for patients who have stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Another procedure that can be combined with laparoscopic repair of diastasis recti is a “mini mini tuck”. This procedure is great for female with lower abdominal incision from previous cesarean section. In this unique procedure, after laparoscopic repair of Diastasis recti, the existing lower abdominal incision is opened and the skin is separated from the muscle. The muscle in the lower abdomen below the belly button is tightened and the excess skin is removed. This procedure has less postoperative pain and faster recovery than standard tummy tuck. This procedure helps to create a smoother, flatter stomach and improve the overall contour of the waistline.
It is important to note that combining multiple procedures does increase the overall risk and complexity of the surgery. Patients should be in good health and have realistic expectations for their results before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, stated Dr Iraniha Laparoscopy Surgery Expert. It is also important to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon who can help to guide patients through the decision-making process and ensure a safe and successful outcome.
