Thus, these muscle disorders are responsible for abdominal bulge that can be corrected by muscle plication mentioned. This circumstance of excess skin and abdominal wall relaxation usually occurs in patients who have had weight gain and subsequent loss or primarily in women who have had multiple pregnancies.
