Would You Turn a Hernia Repair into a Full TT?

I recently discovered a hernia, and went to see a general surgeon. She felt around my stomach, & immediately talked about the excess skin around my stomach, and consulted a plastic surgeon in the office. The hernia removal is covered by my insurance; however, I'd have to pay the surgeon's fee for it + anethesia costs. His fee was originally $2K, but now went up to $3K, in addition to $1300 for extra anethesia...would you proceed with this??
