Difficult hernias of the abdominal wall can occur after previous abdominal or hernia surgery. Patients seen by our surgeons have usually had several procedures done to repair the hernia. Prior to seeing us, the problem has usually recurred and frequently worsens. Pain, poorly fitting clothing, difficulty with physical activities and intestinal problems are often seen in patients with large hernias.
The privacy of our patients is extremely important to us. Therefore, ‘before and after’ photos appearing on our web site have been used with the written consent of our patients. When you visit our office for your consultation, you will be able to view a full album of before and after photos that further demonstrate our skilled work.
Please note, the photos are clinical in nature and are intended for those interested in learning more about plastic and reconstructive surgery and the types of results that can be achieved. As you view them, it is important to remember that each person’s body composition is different and everyone heals differently. Some images contain medically relevant nudity and may not be appropriate for those under age 18.
The photos below represent Dr. Bruce Mast’s prior abdominal wall reconstruction surgery patients.
