Tummy Tuck

While doing a tummy tuck, can an umbilical hernia be repaired at the same time for men?

I have had a really bad back problem for the last month. Using morphine to control pain. Have had an MRI and waiting for results.

In general, a small umbilical hernia can be repaired during your tummy tuck. Your question presents a great issue. You have several things going on right now. Your situation is best coordinated by a knowledgeable primary care doctor. They can see that you get an appropriate evaluation for back pain and possibly the hernia (depending on its size and symptoms). They can refer you to an experienced plastic surgeon for examination and consultation. Afterward you and your doctors can plan a course of care to best help you. Best Wishes.

The tummy tuck involves some work on the abdomen muscles, so at the same time the umbilical hernia can be repaired.
