Is It Safe to Have a Hysterectomy, Hernia Repair and Tummy Tuck at the Same Time?

Most of us won't do a tummy tuck at the time of a hysterectomy. It is possible to do the TT  at the time of a hernia repair, but that depends totally on where and what type of hernia you have.

The Safety of A Combined Hysterectomy and Tummy Tuck

+1

Combining a tummy tuck with a hysterectomy is common and has been shown to be safe for most patients. But there are many variables that must be considered to determine if this combination is for you. These include your medical health, the availability and coordination of surgeons to do it and the economics of the institution where the hysterectomy is to be performed. Contrary to popular perception, combining an insurance covered and a cosmetic procedure today may not be financially prudent particularly when done in a hospital setting.

Combined procedure

+1

The answer to your question depends on several factors.  First, what is your overall health status?  What are your medical issues? Are you anemic?  Also, we have to consider the size of your hernia and the anticipated complexity of your hernia repair.   A combined procedure can be done, but start with visiting a board certified plastic surgeon to see if indeed you are a candidate for a combined procedure.
