The ASPS would be a good starting point to identify qualified, board certified plastic surgeons. Consult with 3 - 4 experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons to explore your options.

Tummy tuck performed with hysterectomy

+1

There are many patients in Florida who have had  a full hysterectomy  performed witha tummy tuck if the patient is in good health  and the hysterectomy is being performed for non cancerous reasons.   This type of surgery can be performed very safely  for the patient , but the patient has to be prepared to stay in the hospital for several days( this is usually required for the hysterectomy anyway).  The recovery would require the patient to remain in Tampa for two or more weeks and would be released to travel only with the approval of the OBGYN and the Plastic Surgeon.  You may be able to find someone closer to home who has had  experience in performing this type of surgery, however.  As always full surgical and medical evaluations are mandatory before this could be recommended.

Good luck.
