In brief: Usually

The abdomen and site of the hernia have to be exposed to fix the hernia.
The breasts and genital organs can usually remain covered. Feel free to discuss this with your surgeon, anethesiologist, and nurses so that you can feel comfortable knowing that they will protect your dignity to the fullest extent.
