Abdominal Wall Surgery
You might need to consider abdominal wall reconstructive surgery if
- You have a hernia that is causing distress
- Significant weight loss means you are lacking good muscle control, and your muscles and skin are badly stretched
- You have had surgical complications
Abdominal wall surgery can be simple or complex, depending on the condition to be corrected.
Body Mass Index (BMI): A Quick Calculator
If your BMI is 30 – 39.9, you are considered to be obese; 40 – 49.9 is morbidly obese, and 50+ is super obese. BMI can be useful in helping you understand whether you are in a healthy weight range. But it’s only part of the equation. Your initial consultation with Dr Ma includes a thorough medical examination, full medical history and questions about your current lifestyle and weight management history.
