Abdominal wall reconstruction

Abdominal wall reconstruction is carried out to repair the damage to the abdomens muscles and tissues, often after a previous surgery. Book online today.

This is carried out when the muscles and tissues that support the abdomen are destroyed, typically due to the sequelae of wound breakdown and infection following previous surgery, eg bowel surgery.  This type of reconstruction can also be required following surgery for the removal of cancers, the correction of birth defects and following trauma. 

What does abdominal wall reconstruction involve?

The damaged tissue is removed and healthy tissue is brought into the area using plastic surgical techniques, such as local flaps, tissue advancement and if necessary, skin grafts.  In addition, supporting materials such as artificial mesh material can be used when muscle has been lost. 

What are the benefits? 

Control and correction of massive incisional hernias and the restoration of abdominal wall stability.  Safety profile – good, with appropriate pre and post-operative care.
