Q: How can you tell what your abdominal muscle spread is? What spread needs an abdominoplasty?

What our experts say:

The way I can tell separation is when I have a woman relax, if I can feel the space between the two rectus muscles when you palpate up and down the mid portion of the abdomen. As a lay person you may not know what to be feeling for but as a physician I can tell.
