Questions Needed for Consultation with Senior Resident Surgeons at a Teaching Hospital
Byon 30 Jan 2012
Hello all! I am having a tummy tuck/lipo consultation this Thursday, 2/2/12, with two senior residents at a local teaching hospital in North Carolina. I have had one other consultation with a Charlotte plastic surgeon that performed my breast aug in 2004. He did great but I simply cannot afford to get what I want to have done with his practice. I have also looked into having the procedures done out of state, for a lot less money and out of the country for even less. My fear is that if I did have complications afterward, I would like to be able to go back for help and that would be impossible with that much distance. I originally had only been thinking about getting liposuction, in my abdomen and flanks for the muffin top, an also on my lower back to create a better butt. When I was pregnant with my second of four children I gained weight above my butt and it never went away. I ended up with little to no definition there - a flat butt basically. After talking with my previous P.S. and scouring the boards on here, I now agree that I will ultimately be happier if I go for it and have a full tummy tuck plus lipo of all three areas. I have written down several questions to ask the surgeons but if anyone has some good ones, please let me know!
