Mini tummy tuck and recti diastasis didn't work, what now?
I am a 5'9" size 4, extremely fit athlete. After my 2nd pregnancy I looked 5 months pregnant if I didn't flex. My surgeon removed a small amount of skin (mini tuck) and closed my recti (3"). More than 6 months later, and with great ab definition WHEN I FLEX, I still look 5 months pregnant when I don't flex and my surgeon says she has never seen anything like it and will have to consult other surgeons. Any thoughts on how to get me back to normal?
Without an examination no real answer can be given. I would recommend you get other opinions. Look for surgeons that perform the surgery regularly.
