Is It Safe to Have Liposuction Performed Prior to Having Umbilical Hernia Repair?
I went to a plastic surgeon for an abdominal liposuction consultation. He told me I have a small umbilical hernia. I am concerned as to whether I should have this repaired prior to further considering the procedure. I had already scheduled a pre-op visit but I would rather be safe and wait if necessary.
I believe umbilical hernias should be repaired prior to liposuction.

I recommend that you get the hernia fixed first before having liposuction to avoid serious complications.
