Combining different plastic surgery procedures to offer optimal treatment for post-bariatric patients has been our plastic surgery department’s specialisation for many years now. We have performed such surgeries for more than 10.000 patients to this date. Since weight loss patients often require multiple surgical procedures to address excess skin, surgery planning and surgeons’ experience are very important. We carefully select patients, evaluate each case individually, and only agree to combine surgeries within health & safety limits. Our team of 9 plastic surgeons performs more than 3.000 plastic operations a year, a number that no other clinic in Central & Eastern Europe can match.
A hernia is a protrusion of an organ through the weakest part of the muscles or connective tissue of the abdominal wall. Hernias are provoked by a combination of factors – increased intra-abdominal pressure and the weakness of the abdominal wall muscles or fascia. Therefore, the main risk factors associated with hernias are obesity, pregnancy, chronic cough or constipation, connective tissue disorders, as well as older age, smoking, family history of hernia and physical exertion.
The most common types of hernia include inguinal, femoral, incisional and umbilical hernias.
Inguinal hernias occur in the groin and are divided into two groups: indirect and direct hernias. Indirect inguinal hernia protrudes through the internal inguinal ring to the inguinal canal and follows the course of the spermatic cord. Direct hernias bulge straight through the defect of the lower abdominal wall muscles. Inguinal hernias are more common among men.
Overall, abdominal wall hernias have a variety of clinical presentations depending upon their location. Generally, there are no symptoms except a painless bulge varying in size. However, hernias may cause discomfort or increased pain when standing up or stretching.
Whatever type of hernia a person has, it is recommended to consider a proper and timely treatment. It is suggested to treat hernias to prevent obstruction of the herniated intestine or strangulation of the protruded tissue. There are two ways to treat hernias.
