It depends on what kind of hernia repair that you are having. Ask your plastic surgeon re the specifics of your particular surgery.

As a general rule, Plastic surgeons do not perform hernial surgery unless it is associated with a tummytuck. This is a question you need to ask of your hernia surgeon.
