Tummy Tuck with Hernia Repair
Having a baby, as wonderful an event as it is, can certainly do some damage to a womans body. The connective tissue that holds the abdominal muscles together is stretched out by pregnancy and this can lead to several issues including rectus diastasis, ventral hernia, and umbilical hernia. For this patient, I performed a tummy tuck as well as a ventral hernia and an umbilical hernia repair. As you can see from the final side photo at the end of the video, the amount of abdominal wall repair was quite dramatic. This will help not only the patients appearance but it will also provide core strength and reduce back aches.
