At BEAUTY By BUFORD, we take your umbilical hernia seriously, and you’ll find top-notch care. If you're dealing with the discomfort and frustration of an umbilical hernia, you're in capable hands with Denver plastic surgeon Gregory A. Buford, MD, FACS, PCEO.
What Is Umbilical Hernia Repair?
Umbilical hernia repair is a surgical procedure designed to treat umbilical hernias. With this condition, there’s a weakness or a gap in the abdominal muscles around the belly button, allowing abdominal contents to protrude through the weakened area. This results in a noticeable bulge near or around the navel, which can be uncomfortable and sometimes painful.
During the repair, Dr. Buford will make a small incision near the umbilicus to access the herniated area. The herniated tissues, such as fat or intestine, will be gently pushed back into the abdominal cavity. The weakened abdominal muscles are then carefully stitched together or reinforced with a synthetic mesh to create a strong barrier and prevent a recurrence of the hernia.
At BEAUTY By Buford, we understand the importance of treating an umbilical hernia promptly. Our skilled team ensures that every step of the repair process is meticulously handled, from pre-operative preparation to post-operative care, to optimize your recovery and overall well-being.
Why Would I Need Umbilical Hernia Repair?
If you've been diagnosed with an umbilical hernia, surgical repair may be necessary, especially if:
- Discomfort & Pain: The hernia causes discomfort, pain, or aching sensations, hindering your daily activities and quality of life.
- Size & Enlargement: The hernia has grown in size over time or has become significantly large, affecting your appearance and potentially leading to further complications.
- Incarceration: The hernia becomes trapped or incarcerated, causing severe pain, nausea, vomiting, and an inability to push the herniated tissues back in.
- Obstruction: The hernia obstructs the normal flow of bowel contents, leading to bowel-related symptoms like bloating, constipation, or difficulty passing gas.
- Strangulation: In rare cases, the hernia can become strangulated, cutting off blood supply to the herniated tissues, resulting in a medical emergency requiring immediate surgical intervention.
Remember, leaving an umbilical hernia untreated can lead to potential complications. Dr. Buford will thoroughly evaluate your condition, discuss your symptoms, and recommend the most suitable treatment plan tailored to your needs.
