can you get liposuction or a tummy tuck even if you have an umbilical hernia or you have to go with a different doctor to treat the hernia first?

  • A very good question! For the doctor.

  • The plastic surgeon would be able to most likely fix the hernia. Especially since he is already in there. When they do a tummy tuck, they have to pull down the abdominal wall muscles, so I am going to assume that they definitely can fix your hernia.

  • i had an embilical hernia and yes if it had been fixed and is healed, then you can do what you want to, a tummy tuck or lipo, just tell your doc so he can watch for any problems
