Diastasis recti is a condition that typically affects women after childbirth, but can also be seen in men as well. It involves a separation of the abdominal muscles, resulting in an unsightly pooch. With a tummy tuck, Dr. Hovsepian can tighten, tone, and generally correct this issue.
Say Goodbye to the “Post-Pregnancy Pooch”
Eating healthy and working out on a regular basis are the cornerstones of a healthy body. In plenty of instances, however, problem areas can remain stubborn, refusing to respond to even the most consistent of healthy lifestyle choices. If you’re feeling frustrated by the presence of what some refer to as a “post-pregnancy pooch,” Dr. Hovsepian might very well have the answer for you.
An abdominoplasty procedure—also known as a tummy tuck—can correct the issue known as diastasis recti, enabling you to enjoy a tight and toned abdomen once more. If you’re ready to learn more about how this procedure can help you, reach out and set up your consultation at our Beverly Hills location today.
How a Tummy Tuck Can Correct the Issue
Separation of the abdominal muscles is commonly seen in women following childbirth, but it can occur in men as well, and can be caused by a number of different factors. In most cases, it appears as a bulge, located anywhere between the top of the abdomen to below your belly button.
Dr. Raffi Hovsepian can address this issue—which is frequently only cosmetic in nature—by expertly tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall, closing this gap, and relieving the presence of any unsightly bulges or “pooches.”
Your Tummy Tuck Procedure
A Customized Treatment
No two patients are the same, which is why we never adopt a one-size-fits-all approach. We work closely with each patient who comes through our doors, and Dr. Hovsepian will learn everything there is to know about your personal cosmetic aspirations. Together, you’ll develop a customized treatment plan that sees you meeting your goals.
This procedure is performed under general anesthesia, and typically takes between two and four hours. You’ll be able to return home once it’s over, after a brief stay in our recovery area, though you will need a friend to drive you. During your consultation, Dr. Hovsepian will walk you through procedural details, such as incision placement.
The Recovery Period
Your recovery period should last between four and six weeks, and Dr. Hovsepian will ensure that you know exactly what to expect from the experience. We’ll give you specific aftercare instructions, and we’ll set up follow-up appointments to make sure you’re healing up nicely and to keep an eye on your progress.
