Is this an umbilical hernia? (photos)
Doctor Answers 1
Umbilical hernia? I think it is too difficult to discern from the photo whether that is an umbilical hernia or not. It could be a very small one, but I would rely more on physical exam then those photos. Either way, doing liposuction in that area would not be of concern if I did not feel the hernia on exam. Did the other surgeons actually really check for it?
