I am having a tummy tuck with a groin hernia repair, my plastic surgeon is bringing in a general surgeon to do the hernia repair. This is a small groin hernia what I would like to know is what the average cost for a general surgeons time is for assisting
Best to wait: No, best to wait especially if you had an open hernia repair. If I see a a patient with a hernia who also has excess skin, then we do a combined procedure with the surgeon as it limits upper abdominal scars, gives a stronger repair as the divarication is repaired first, the hernia is repaired with a laparoscopic mesh, and an abdominoplasty is carried out as well. ...Read more

Is it possible for your bowels to get stuck or caught in your intestines after having a belly button hernia repair?
Adhesions: Post-operative adhesions may result after any type of abdominal surgery. Think of a scar after you get a cut on your skin. The inside of the body will form scars to heal the tissue similarly. Sometimes these scar tissues are "sticky" and may form an adhesion to the intestine, or any other abdominal organ such as the liver, gallbladder, spleen or stomach. Most adhesions do not cause symptoms. ...Read more

Can you have stomach fat or lipo done at the time of hernia repair surgeries? Port site and incisional umbilical hernia?
Bad Idea: Incisional hernia repair is almost-always done with mesh. Mesh infections can be devastating complications.
