Tummy Tuck and Laparoscopic Surgery for Hysterectomy? (photo)
My tubes are tied, and my doctor and I decided that a partial hysterectomy is ideal due to treat a uterine fibroid. I had a revised tummy tuck in October of 2010 with a high belly button placement and heavy stitches below my belly button to my incision line, which is very high as well. Can my tummy tuck be affected? I see that a laparoscopic hysterectomy uses the belly button as a port entrance. I'm afraid I have too much scar tissue there as well as the concern of affecting the stitches.
