Incisional hernias occur when a weakness in the muscle of the abdomen allows tissue to protrude through the muscle or due to an incision made during abdominal surgery. The condition is most common in obese and pregnant patients, as well as those with a history of past abdominal surgeries.

In severe cases, they may even involve portions of organs moving through the hole in the muscle. 

At the Beverly Hills Hernia Center, Dr. Towfigh is able to diagnose an incisional hernia upon a thorough examination, as the condition is usually evidenced by a soft bulge underneath or next to the scar site. Her unparalleled experience has led to a level of expertise that is unmatched within the field.
