Is it possible to have a hernia repair and a tummy tuck at the same time?

chiefsugar,

Of course hernia's are fixed at the time of a Tummy Tuck. We do them all the time. Please look at the link here to see if there is someone that looks like you: https://garyculbertson.com/body-plastic-surgery-before-and-after/ .

There are exclucsions such as, patients with LARGE RECURRENT Hernia's or hernia's already fixed with mess that have come back. Consider discussing your concerns with a member of the ASPS. They are experts in Abdominoplasty's and Lipo-Abdominoplasty's.

Best,
