After pregnancy, excessive weight loss, or just because of age, many women find it impossible to diet away their abdominal pooch. This can be very frustrating for Hollywood and Beverly Hills women after they’ve put so much intentional time and effort into eating healthier.

So why does the abdomen still protrude for so many women, even after dieting? For most, the reason is due to separated abdominal muscles, medically known as diastasis recti. Keep reading, and we will discuss more about this condition and how Dr. Bruno can help you get rid of your pooch for good with a tummy tuck!

What is Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis recti is a separation of the abdominal muscles, and it occurs when the two large parallel muscles in the middle of the abdomen do not return to their original position after being stretched during pregnancy or excessive weight gain. This separation causes the abdomen to protrude. Not only does this pooch lead to aesthetic concerns for women in Hollywood, but it can also lead to pain for a lot of women. The separation of these large muscles creates a weakened core, which leads to back pain or could even result in a hernia – a painful medical condition in which part of the intestine protrudes through the space between the two muscles.

The only way to effectively and permanently correct the separation of abdominal muscles is to carefully stitch them back together during a tummy tuck procedure.

A Tummy Tuck With Hollywood’s Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Bruno

Dr. Bruno uses his artistic eye and years of technical training to make his Hollywood tummy tuck patients look like the best version of themselves. To perform this procedure, he will begin by making an incision just below the bikini line, from hip to him. While this incision is long, it is necessary in order to provide Dr. Bruno the access he needs in order to effectively eliminate the excess skin and fatty deposits from the abdominal area.

Next, Dr. Bruno will correct the weakened abdominal muscles causing a protruding abdomen by using a series of specialized sutures. This step gives his tummy tuck patients extra strength and support to the muscles. This is what gives women a flatter, tighter waistline. If the muscles are not tightened in this way, it is not possible to achieve a truly flat abdominal contour.
