Struggling with a hernia can be painful. Many people struggle with abdominal hernias due to issues like pregnancy, obesity, straining during bowel movements, and more. Hernias can be both prevented and repaired, but often going through surgery simply to repair a hernia is not on everyone’s top priority list. We find that often our patients who have abdominal hernias elect to have tummy tuck procedures at the same time. We are based in Newport Beach in Orange County, serving all of Southern California. Please call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation.
Hernias can be very problematic. They are often painful, possibly dangerous, and recurring. Hernias can be caused by (or lead to) a weakening of the abdominal wall, which is one of the reasons that hernias continue to come back and plague you even after you have lost weight or had a baby.
Though unrelated to hernias, a tummy tuck incision can provide a great, hidden, and low incision that can provide a great access to an abdominal hernia. Instead of having an incision on the central abdomen, the tummy tuck incision can be used by a qualified plastic surgeon to expose the abdominal wall, the abdominal hernia, and the defect location. The hernia is then repaired through this incision and the rest of the tummy tuck is completed.
Dr. Agha is a Board Certified plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a member of the American Society of Plastic surgeons. He is not only one of the top rated tummy tuck specialists in Southern California – he is also trained in abdominal hernia repair. That is why we are proud to offer a combination tummy tuck/abdominal hernia repair procedure, so that you can avoid having two surgeries and address two separate issues at the same time. Do you have more questions about Abdominal Hernia repair or Tummy Tuck surgery?
There is more than one type of hernia. Dr. Agha at Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center can repair many different types of abdominal hernias, including:
Both abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and abdominal hernia repair are major surgeries, so it’s important to note that hernia repair can affect the recovery time after the surgery. Incisional hernia repairs, for example, are known to affect the recovery time of the tummy tuck, so make sure you talk to Dr. Agha about the concerns you have regarding the abdominal hernia and tummy tuck combination procedure, as well as what your complete health history.

Whether you are coming from Orange County or Los Angeles, San Diego or Riverside, Dr. Agha and his staff wish to welcome you. Our 7,000 square feet state-of-the-art facility of The Aesthetic Centers that was recently completed in 2018.
Dr. Agha routinely consults with patients who choose to travel internationally or from other states. Many patients desire to take advantage of his expertise and skill but are not located nearby for a consultation. As a result, Dr. Agha offers virtual consultations if you are located outside Southern California. Therefore, don’t delay and call the office for a consultation.
Dr. Agha and his staff truly feel like a second family to me. I revealed my biggest insecurity to him and his team, only to be met with sincere respect and absolutely no judgment or criticism. I had a tummy tuck, lipo on the small of my back and fat transfer from that lipo to my buttocks. I was completely prepared for recovery, as they well informed me of what to expect so there were no surprises. The results exceeded both of our expectations as he is just as excited about them as I am. I have recommended him to absolutely everyone I know, and others who are just beginning their journey with their own self improvement. He is the most qualified surgeon in the state of California (believe me, I have checked), and has even pioneered certain procedures that are imitated in the state and I’m sure throughout the country.
