I am 37 male athletic 5ft 6 inch, 143 lbs. I had a small laparoscopic Ventral hernia repair with 10cm x 15cm Ventral Light Mesh, August 2011, Since them I had 2 small bowel obstruction and abdominal weakness remains. Note, I also have a small diastasis recti and 2 early stages hernia in the groin. I think my body has a problem with this mesh. Is it possible to have abdominoplasty to remove the mesh, repair ventral hernia non mesh, repair diastasis recti, and repair 2 hernia in groin all at once?

Abdominoplasty with Ventral Hernia Mesh Removal
Given your history and given that a large (10cm X 15 cm) mesh graft was used, I am not certain that an abdominoplasty with removal of the mesh would be in your best interest. Before proceeding with this surgery I would suggest you notify the surgeon who placed the mesh and have him/her speak with the surgeon you are considering for the abdominoplasty. Your's is a more complex case and requires good communication between your surgeons. Best wishes.
Yes, a tummy tuck would allow access to remove the ventral hernia mesh.
