Can one have a mini tummy tuck, umbilical hernia and Prolapse uterus repaired via the abdomen?

Doctor Answers 2

Consider umbilical float for umbi hernia repair with mini tummy tuck

The umbilical float procedure uses a mini tummy tuck where the belly button is detached from underneath, giving exposure to the upper abdomen where for example a rectus separation could be repaired. An umbilical hernia could also be repaired without an external scar on the belly button.

Hello, it is technically feasible to do all of these operations at the same time but your plastic surgeon would need to determine whether it is possible in your situation, and collaborate with a gynecologist and possibly general surgeon.
