    What is abdominal rectus diastasis treatment?

    Abdominal diastasis surgery is a surgical procedure to treat a condition affecting the abdominal muscles called "abdominal diastasis". This condition is manifested by a bulge in the abdomen due to a separation of the muscles and a widening of the linea alba (the fiber structure that separates the rectus abdominis muscles). Treatment of diastasis consists of reconstructing the abdomen and improving its appearance by giving the belly a toned shape.

    Symptoms of abdominal diastasis

    Abdominal diastasis causes musculoskeletal and urogynecological problems that result in pain in the abdomen.

    Since diastasis recti occur mainly during pregnancy, the pregnant woman will feel as if she has no muscles left in the entire belly line.

    After delivery, the diastasis may continue and subsequently lead to back and stomach pain.

    Diastasis of the rectus abdominis muscles is also common in people who have gained weight to a significant degree. Transit disorders such as constipation as well as posture disorders may eventually occur.

    Umbilical and abdominal hernias may also occur.

    Diagnosis of diastasis of the rectus muscles in Turkey

    Generally, people with abdominal laxity have a negative body image that influences their social and marital life.

    For this reason, treatment is very important for any individual suffering from this condition. A diagnosis must be made beforehand.

    A clinical examination is essential to determine if it is a diastasis rectus. To confirm its presence, a radiological examination (ultrasound) is necessary.

    The doctor then observes a bulge in the abdomen accompanied by a hernia in the white line of the abdomen or an umbilical hernia at the level of the navel.

    Diastasis must be distinguished from other conditions affecting the abdomen, such as:

    • Venting: protrusion of the viscera through the muscles of the abdomen following a surgical procedure
    • Epigastric hernia: hernia of the white line

    Treatment of diastasis of the rectus muscles

    The diastasis recti are designated by a separation of the muscles of the median line with a spacing of 1 to 10 cm and even more. The treatment is performed using two techniques, physiotherapy and abdominoplasty.

    Physiotherapy treatment

    Consultations with a physiotherapist and a physical therapist are highly recommended. They are used to practicing exercises that focus on pulling the entire abdominal strap to ensure that the diastasis does not increase in size.

    Treatment by surgery: abdominoplasty

    For severe and advanced cases where the diastasis recti persist in such a way as to embarrass the person in question, surgery of the abdomen is therefore necessary.

    Abdominoplasty removes the excess skin and fat that form an abdominal apron, the cause of muscle looseness in the abdomen. To do this, the plastic surgeon makes incisions, applies liposuction to remove excess fat tissue, and then performs sutures to tighten the underlying muscles.

    Other treatments for diastasis

    Diastasis can be treated by placing an abdominal plate in the form of a prosthesis to strengthen the abdominal muscles. This step can be combined with an abdominoplasty to improve the aesthetic appearance.

    Laparoscopy is also possible to correct diastasis.
