You are right, I should have said no fascia/muscle is excised (removed). There are a wide variety of abdominoplasty procedures, as you mentioned. The fascia is oversewn to tighten the abdominal wall in some cases. Diastasis is a common cosmetic problem, but fortunately it is one without significant symptoms or need for repair. (unless, of course, you are paying to have cosmetic surgery)...
