Hernias are often repaired with a tummy tuck

+1

Small abdominal hernias are often corrected at the time of a tummy tuck. Check your surgeons credentials and experience. Many plastic surgeons are double board certified in Plastic Surgery and General Surgery and are well experienced with these procedures. Sending a picture to your prospective plastic surgeon prior to your visit is often helpful. Geoffrey Leber, MD

Abdominal hernia and tummy tuck at the same time

+1
It is often possible to repair an abdominal hernia and perform a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty at the same time. This can be determined only after a complete examination. I perform the procedure routinely in my practice located in El Paso, Texas.
