How is colostomy reversal surgery done?

During your colostomy reversal, an incision will be made around your stoma (the opening in your abdomen that has been used for waste removal), allowing your surgeon to access the inside of your abdomen and reattach the sections of your colon with dissolvable stitches or staples. Then the stoma is closed with stitches.
