Hernias are a fairly common concern, affecting tens of thousands of people in the United States each year. Although the cause of a hernia is sometimes clear, many people develop them for no discernible reason.

At Cosmetic Surgery Institute, Palm Desert-area patients may undergo hernia repair surgery either on its own or in conjunction with tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty). Hernia repair does not have any effect on the recovery time or outcome of tummy tuck surgery.
There are 2 common techniques for repairing a hernia: open and laparoscopic surgery. Our surgeons perform the open technique exclusively because it allows them to more effectively tighten weak, loose tissues and increases the chances of long-term success. They also prefer to repair and reinforce the hernia using a patient's own tissue rather than surgical mesh, which has been linked to long-term discomfort and other complications.
