Restoring Core Strength: Hernia Repair Techniques Unveiled:

  • Rectus Diastasis: This condition involves the separation of the abdominal muscles, often seen after pregnancy or significant weight loss. Surgical correction restores muscle alignment, enhancing core strength and aesthetics.
  • Ventral Hernia: A ventral hernia occurs when abdominal tissue pushes through a weakened area in the abdominal wall. Surgical repair involves returning the tissue to its proper position and reinforcing the area with surgical mesh.
  • Incisional Hernia: An incisional hernia forms at the site of a previous surgical incision. Repair entails repositioning the protruding tissue and reinforcing the area with mesh to prevent recurrence.


Strength and Beauty in Harmony: Hernia Repair and Contouring Solutions:

  • Mesh Placement: Surgical mesh is often used to provide reinforcement and stability to weakened abdominal tissues during hernia repair. It helps prevent recurrence and supports the body’s natural healing process.
  • Combination Procedures: Dr. Prucz offers the unique advantage of combining hernia repair with cosmetic procedures like tummy tucks. This approach ensures not only functional restoration but also aesthetic enhancement.  His unique ability to combine these procedures can also save you time and money with a single recovery!

DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction

A DIEP (i.e. deep inferior epigastric perforator) flap reconstruction uses the patient’s own abdominal tissue to reconstruct the breast.  The skin and fat is lifted off of the abdominal muscle and transferred to the breast.  With this advanced technique, which is performed by only a few surgeons in the Valley, the patient’s breast are reconstructed without implants using her own abdominal tissue.  As an added bonus since the transferred tissue is from the belly the patient gets a tummy tuck! Also, unlike a TRAM (i.e. transverse rectus adipomyocutaneous) flap reconstruction, the abdominal muscles are not removed decreasing hernias and bulges.
