Muscle Diastasis and Hernia Repair: Unlocking the Benefits of Lock and Glue Lipoabdominoplasty

In the realm of surgical innovation, the marriage of both functional and aesthetic concerns has reached new heights with Lock and Glue Lipoabdominoplasty. This procedure not only addresses the desire for a smoother, contoured abdomen but also offers a solution for those struggling with the discomfort and inconvenience of Abdominal Muscle Diastasis (split) and Hernias. 

Traditionally, repairing Hernias associated with Abdominal Muscle Diastasis involves invasive procedures with a scar across the middle of the abdomen . However, our innovative Lock and Glue Lipoabdominoplasty merges elements of Diastasis and Hernia repair with Lipoabdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), resulting in a sleeker, more contoured abdomen while effectively treating the Diastasis and Hernia. The scar is hidden within the bikini line.

The Benefits of Lock and Glue Lipoabdominoplasty

  • The Lock and Glue Lipoabdominoplasty is carried out as a day case involving Twilight Anaesthesia
  • Twilight Anaesthesia results in a quicker recovery with little to no nausea or grogginess
  • Day procedure reduces the risk of hospital acquired infections and the risk of DVT and pulmonary embolus as a result of earlier mobilisation
  • The use of locking sutures and surgical glue (Lock and Glue) to ‘stick’ the tissue down obviates the use of drains and reduces the risk of seromas
  • Repairing the abdominal hernia at the same time as the diastasis reduces the number of surgical procedures and scars.
