The scars have softened nicely and the shape has evolved.

The loose stomach wall muscles and a large diastasis recti (separation of the abdominal wall (rectus) muscles) were a major cause of this bulge of her abdomen. A large gap can occur between the two rectus muscles during pregnancy. In some cases this never returns to normal.

Only 3 pounds of skin and fat were removed during the abdominoplasty surgery. The patient lost an additional 12 pounds on her own before the 4 week photos. The repair of the diastasis recti played a major role in this patient.
