Did anyone get their stomach muscles sewn tighter during Hysterectomy?

My previous surgeries have left me with such a weak core, my surgeon says she can tighten my stomach muscles surgically during my hysterectomy. Is this something that a lot of ladies do? Does it make recovery much worse? I would love to have a flatter and stronger belly but concerned about it causing complications with surgery/recovery. Would love any input! Thanks.

Re: Did anyone get their stomach muscles sewn tighter during Hysterectomy?

I had it done, but not by choice. I had 4 c sections and during my hystetectomy found that I had extensive growth of scar tissue in my abdominals, and they had go cut some of my muscles to get through. The result is I have tighter abs, which I will appreciate once all this swelling goes down, but the internal stitches are layer upon layer and I have to be very careful, and it caused more pain. I was told if I am not careful could end up with an abdominal hernia, which would mean additional surgery. so just know that going in. I hsd TAH on
