Ventral Hernia Repair and Abdominalplasty? (photo)
I'm revisiting this subject once again. My new surgeon (new hospital) is on the fence about simultaneous hernia repair and abdominalplasty. Her main concern is having too much skin removed. Her advice is to wait after the hernia repair, but she is going to consult with the plastic surgeon about other options such as a component separation and abdominalplasty combined. She says that she can repair the hernia laproscopically, but how would that affect a future tummy tuck? Thanks.
