I interviewed Lisa Ryan, a coach and high-level athlete who rehabbed a significant diastasis (was able to do muscle ups and lift heavy etc), yet ultimately chose abdominoplasty surgery to improve both the aesthetic and tension of her midline.

We discuss a lot of what we both expected, and what we were surprised about. This episode is a full disclosure of the good, the bad and the ugly that we wish everyone knew before choosing surgery. This combines both our personal experience and coaching professional take on the before, during and after surgery approach with managing expectations and outcome.

This is part 2 of a 4-episode series on abdominoplasty.
