Tummy Tuck in Yorba Linda, California*
This patient was interested in an athletic tummy tuck and liposuction over the waist. She also wanted to repair a small umbilical hernia. Umbilical hernias can be repaired at the same time as a tummy tuck. However, performing this simultaneously with a tummy tuck does place the patient at greater risk for wound healing problems around the belly button and even loss of the belly button.
