Aesthetic Center Jan van Goyen is regularly featured in the media. This month you can read Sarah's experience online on the website of For You Magazine.
Sarah underwent a tummy tuck with drs. Gijs van Selms because she suffered from diastasis. A diastasis is the deviation of the straight abdominal muscles and occurs during pregnancy. The abdominal muscles give way to make room for the baby growing in the belly. Under the influence of pregnancy hormones, the connective tissue becomes more flexible and therefore the muscles can stretch to 2 to 2.5 cm to create space for the baby. After childbirth, the opening that has formed usually heals after about six months. Doesn't this happen automatically? Then various complaints arise such as posture problems, stability problems and back pain.
These complaints do not always disappear through sports or physiotherapy. Surgery is then required to revive the abdominal muscles. That's what they call it when the loose parts of the tendon leaf are stitched back together. In addition to reducing the complaints, the abdominoplasty provides a good result.
