    Is open neurectomy or laparoscopic for genitofemoral and iliohypogastric more invasive. Can either result in abdominal muscle atrophy?

    Not necessarily. Open neurectomy usually causes less risk for atrophy than laparoscopic neurectomy, which is done more proximally and therefore has a higher risk of cutting nerves that are more than just skin nerves.
