Reconstructive surgery offers medical procedures for addressing functional and structural weakness in the abdomen due to injury, disease, congenital defect, significant fluctuations in body weight or previous medical treatment.
Herniated muscles and belly buttons, open wounds, muscle tumors and hanging fat and skin after significant weight loss can be addressed with an abdominal wall repair procedure.
Abdominal wall repair surgery requires moving and redistributing the muscles and tissue of the abdomen in order to restore support to the midline, provide durable wound coverage and improve form. Procedures include hernia repair, panniculectomy and abdominoplasty (or tummy tuck). If you are suffering from a weakened abdomen due to infection, immunosuppression, obesity or previous medical treatment, reconstructive abdominal wall repair can help.
