What to Do with Excess Skin After Hernia Repair?
I had a major hernia surgery in 10/08. I had 3 major hernias and multiple minor hernias in scar tissue. My surgeon said, "You had the cadilac of all hernia surgeries." That was fine, but now I have this huge mass of sagging stomach skin. I don't feel it's "cosmetic surgery" to get this removed. I cannot wear my clothes because of this extra skin. When my hernias were fixed, the doctor did tighten the top of my abdomen, but left the big sagging mess. What should I do? Is there any hope for me that insurance will pay for this?
