    a special type of tummy tuck can fix the hernia or weakness. What type of bleeding disorder do you have and can that be treated to make the surgery safe?

    An abdominoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that removed excess skin and fat and tightens the underlying muscle. Since it is a surgical procedure, risks are present and an individual with an underlying know bleeding disorder poses greater risks. Consultation with a plastic surgeon as well as your hematologist would help understanding what those risks are.
