Published

on

Diastase is a condition that also touches men. Doctor Stefano Campa, esthetic and
reconstructive plastic surgeon specialist, explains how masculin diastase maschile can be a
widespread disease among bariatric patients
. The most common symptoms are intestinal and bladder alteration, in addition to various forms of dyspepsia, affecting the quality of life of thos who suffer from it.

Masculine diastase: people affected

Masculine diastase occurs when the abdomen separation is wider than 2,5 cm. «Diastase can
be mild, moderate or severe grade
– explains Dr Campa – in this last case besides aesthetical, the
damage can also be functional
».
Those who live in a condition of obesity have a higher risk of suffering diastase, due to the
increase of intra-abdominal pressure caused by the fat gain.
However, masculine diastase can affect those who practice physical activity without foresight or
who has congenital laxity. «In this case – continues the surgeon – there can be congenital defects
and there is a minor resistance of the abdominal wall
».

The surgery

The diastase correction surgery consists in: «The reconstruction of the muscular wall integrity»
explains Dr Campa. During an abdominoplasty it is possible to correct a diastase at the same
time. It begins by detaching the skin flap to do a plastic of the abdominal wall. «I usually do it in a double layer – continues the surgeon – a deeper one and a superficial layer, then I place a
continuous suture e si usa una sutura continua in order to have a greater tightness
».
In the event of an operation of a patient who suffers from obesity, it is suggested to intervene to bariatric surgery first, on order to normalize body weight. «After six months to a year it will then be possible to begin with the surgical procedures of body shaping» explains Dr Campa.

The rehabilitation

«During the post-operating phase, it is important to be very careful – continues the surgeon –
because anything that increases intra abdominal pressure puts a strain on the rectus muscles». In order to avoid an application collapse that could bring a recidiva, it is important to always wear a sheath for one or two months after the surgery.
«In my opinion, sheaths are crucial – continues Dr Campa – because they reduce deep tissue
edema
». They also provide resistance to the increase of endo abdominal pressure avoiding
rectus muscles to collapse.
It is indeed possible that a recidivism occurs, with a recurrence of masculine diastase, but this
option must be rejected. «During the first days after surgery – concludes the surgeon – it is
therefore very important to avoid making efforts otherwise the sutures might collapse».
