Tummy tuck surgery for hernia repair by Dr. Iraniha
Tummy tuck surgery. There is a lifetime transformation available for patients with abdominal wall hernias.
When it comes to hernia repair most surgeons focus on repairing the hernia and address the functional and anatomical abnormality and in majority of cases there is a very little attention to the aesthetic outcomes.
I’m going to discuss the option of using tummy tuck procedure for repairing the abdominal wall hernias, not only to address the anatomical hernia defect but also improve the final aesthetic results.
Abdominal wall hernias occur when there is a weakness or defect in the abdominal muscles, leading to a protrusion of intra-abdominal structures.
Patients with hernias can present with on and off abdominal pain and discomfort , specially during heavy activity, lifting and straining. Hernia also has potential of life threatening complications including incarceration or strangulation. Said Dr. Iraniha at the Orange County Hernia Repair Center
Abdominal wall hernia surgery techniques
There are many different techniques to repair the abdominal wall hernia but almost all of those procedures only address the underlying hernia defect with little attention to cosmetic results.
The good news is that tummy tuck surgery offers a comprehensive approach to tackle both the hernia and the excess skin and fat. By combining hernia repair with aesthetic contouring, this procedure provides transformative results with lasting benefits and perhaps eliminating the need for placement of a mesh in some cases.
Tummy tuck surgery is done through an incision in the lower abdomen to hide the scar tissue and subsequently the skin is separated off the muscle all the way to the rib cage. This allows Dr. Iraniha Hernia expert to have freedom of repairing the abdominal wall hernia and tightening the muscle laxity for much better post operative cosmetic appearance.
This allows the surgeon to reinforce the hernia repair by tucking the fascia on top of each other and therefore reduce the risk of recurrence and eliminate the need for placement of any mesh implant. At the end, excess skin is excised and a new umbilicus is created.
It’s important to remember that each case is unique, and a personalized evaluation by an Orange County Hernia Specialist is essential to determine if tummy tuck surgery is the right option for you. Consulting with an experienced surgeon who is familiar with all the possible techniques ensures a tailored approach and successful outcomes.
