Today we’ll be talking about one of the reasons women decide to have an abdominoplasty and additional benefits that can be achieved with this one procedure.
It is quite common to see patients in our Newport Beach office who present with a chief complaint of either an umbilical hernia and incisional hernia from a prior c-section and/or myofascial weakness. Typically, these patients wish to undergo repair of their hernia and also have their myofascial weakness repaired at the same time. Quite commonly many women have weakness of their abdominal wall from prior childbirth. At the time of hernia repair we can also reconstruct the muscles of the abdominal wall to improve the appearance and contour of the abdomen.
