A 27 year old, mother of two  had developed a paraumbilical hernia post pregnancy. She visited us desiring not just the hernia repair but also an abdominoplasty.

In such cases, surgical repair always leads to the loss of umbilicus. Though a vestigial body part, removal of umbilicus leads to an unnatural appearance of the abdomen and has negative psychological effects on the individual.

In this case, we treated the hernia with meshplasty, removed the excessive hanging abdominal skin and fat along with the umbilicus and reconstructed a new umbilicus to restore the natural appearance of the abdomen.
