90 Day Fiancé star Loren Brovarnik opened up about having a condition called abdominal diastasis while discussing her “mommy makeover” cosmetic surgery. After she shared her experience with abdominal diastasis, fans are now wondering what the condition is.

What Is Abdominal Diastasis?

Abdominal diastasis “occurs when the rectus abdominis muscles (six-pack ab muscles) separate during pregnancy from being stretched,” according to the Cleveland Clinic. The condition – which is common among pregnant and postpartum people – “can make a person’s belly stick out or bulge months or years postpartum.”

What Plastic Surgery Did 90 Day Fiance’s Loren Brovarnik Have Done?

The TLC personality underwent a major plastic surgery makeover in September 2023. Prior to the procedure, Loren took to Instagram to explain what work she was going to have done.

“The day has finally come, I’m getting a natural mommy makeover. This is something I’ve wanted for a very long time and did a lot of research on, but it’s a little different. I was referred to @drdevvdo by a childhood friend because he specializes in doing it naturally,” she captioned a selfie with Dr. Dev Vibhakar. “I have abdominal diastasis which is uncomfortable for me, so I’ve opted to do a tummy tuck to bring my muscles back together. We know I’ve been very open about wanting to enhance my breasts, so I am doing a 360 lipo and fat transfer to my boobs. Doing it a more natural approach is the best way to go. Just like everything else, I’m beyond excited to share this journey with you.”

Following the procedure that spanned seven hours, Loren shared several updates about her recovery process. “Thank you EVERYONE for your kind words and well wishes for a smooth recovery!!!” she captioned a photo of herself covered in bandages Instagram Stories after the surgery. “I couldn’t be happier with @drdevvdo and @peaceloveplasticsurgery – truly AMAZING!!!”
