Tummy Tuck hernia repair

Tummy Tuck hernia repair

May 11, 2020

A tummy tuck with hernia repair is a great way to solve two issues at once while giving patients a great outcome. Hernia treatment during abdominoplasty is possible because of the easy access to the abdominal cavity during a tummy tuck operation. Patients can easily remove loose skin and treat a hernia with one surgery.

C-Tucks - Great idea or scary trend?

C-Tucks - Great idea or scary trend?

March 30, 2020

If you are planning to have a c-section birth, you may be thinking about getting a c-tuck. C-tuck surgery is a two-in-one procedure that combines a c-section delivery with a tummy tuck at the same time. It seems like a great idea. After all, why go under the knife twice if you don’t have to?

 

Not so fast. In this video, Dr. Bernard Beldholm, FRACS tells the story about why c-tuck surgery is unsafe.

 

Many celebrities are suspected of having c-tuck surgery. But c-tuck surgery is far less common than you’d think. In fact, most qualified cosmetic surgeons are unwilling to perform the procedure. There are several important reasons for this.

 

Firstly, c-tuck complications and risks are sky high. Studies show that infection rates, tissue death and wound splitting are much more likely than when a c-section and tummy tuck are performed separately.

 

Patients are tempted to think that they are immune to risk. Some new mums want their pre-baby body back so badly, they would do almost anything. The desire to get a flat tummy after pregnancy is understandable. However, safety concerns aren’t the only reason to not get a c-tuck.

 

As Doctor Bernard explains in the video, c-tuck surgery gives a poor cosmetic result. So even for patients that would be willing to accept the higher surgical risks, there is really no point since the results won’t look good. For new mums that want a beautiful, flat tummy after baby, it is best to have the c-section birth and tummy tuck surgery separately.

 

There are plenty more reasons to say no to c-tucks. To find out more, click the link!

But we’re here to talk about the benefits of the tummy tuck as a medical intervention for pain and post-pregnancy recovery.

So, if you’ve ever considered an abdominoplasty after having children, this episode will give insight into how it could help you achieve a tight tone abdomen while also resolving a myriad of health concerns.
