Abdominal wall Reconstruction
Abdominal Wall Reconstruction. During a tummy tuck, a so-called hernia can also feature in the abdominal wall. This can occur after a laparoscapy, as hernias tend to protrude at weak points in the abdominal wall. Hernias can also be the result of other surgical procedures or trauma to the abdominal wall. They are often acquired in the course of life. They may be asymtomatic or cause discomfort an pinching of the intestines, resulting in severe pain. Depending on the type of hernia, a reconstruction of the abdominal wall at the weak point could close the fracture gap. Whether this procedure is carried out on an outpatient, inpatient or day-patient basis will be determined by the results of your physical exam. We will explain this clearly to you at your consultation.
For every operation:
Do not take blood thinning drugs such as aspirin, ASS, Plavix, Warfarin etc, 14 days before the elective surgery!
