Tummy Tuck and Lap Band Port Repositioning
It’s seem weekly that I am performing tummy tucks on patients that have undergone gastric bypass surgery with lap bands! In fact we had 3 last week in surgery. It is important to have a board certified general surgeon in the operating room to assist with the port!
As safety is our number one issue , it is vital that the lap band port remain uninjured during the abdominoplasty surgery and be repositioned to a usable new site if necessary.
Thank You, Dr. Stuart A. Linder
