Our rectus diastasis repair is a minimally invasive, endoscopic procedure performed through small incisions. This technique effectively tightens the internal core muscles without necessitating a long abdominal incision. It’s a specialized option for women who don’t have significant loose abdominal skin but are concerned about separation of the abdominal muscles and the resultant “dome” appearance of their tummy. Only a select group of postpartum women are suitable candidates for this procedure. If you believe you might be a candidate, we encourage you to set up a consultation with us to explore your options.
