Abdominoplasty Technique for Ehlers Danlos Patient
I am three months post-op from a full abdominoplasty and umbilical hernia repair by a board certified plastic surgeon. One month post-op the hernia and diastasis recurred. Although my sutures remain intact midline, the surrounding tissues have separated from them. I have since been diagnosed with Ehler's Danlos syndrome. My surgeon has suggested a full revision using mesh to hold the fascia together. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of revision? I am not sure how to proceed.
