Tummy tuck umbilical hernia correction

Hi, this is Dr Hourglass. Today, we are going to show  you the repair of an umbilical hernia during a tummy tuck.

I discussed about the umbilical hernia and the surgical implications of an umbilical hernia repair in the previous videos.

When doing a tummy tuck, I make an incision in the lower abdomen. I then perform the dissection towards the belly button and the belly button is detached from the surrounding skin. I will go ahead and repair the hernia and try to protect the integrity of the belly button. The first thing that I will do is to cut the base of the belly button to expose the hernia. I will make a cut that is big enough for me to see the defects on the belly button. The edges will be clean surgically. I will close the defect using very strong sutures.

Once I close the defect, I will assess the blood supply to the belly button and if there is no issue, I will continue doing my tummy tuck, tightening the muscles, cutting the excess skin, and closing the abdominal wall. The belly button will be recreated through new openings in the skin and closed with interrupted sutures. During a tummy tuck procedure, it is important to fix the hernia to avoid problems in the future. By understanding the anatomy and blood supply of the belly button, it is possible to protect the integrity of the belly button.
