Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
More Questions About Whether an Obese Person W/ history of Abdominal Surgeries Can Have an Abdominoplasty?
Last weekend I went to the ER as my abdomen appeared to shift alot in a short period of time. I didn't want to take any chances, given my hx. They did a ct scan, which revealed a large ventral hernia in my lower left abdomen. I forgot to post that my weight is around 360-370. Is it still possible to have this surgery safely? I would think it would be best to fix this now, rather than wait for an emergency. The md who did last year's surgery won't do it again because of my weight. Help!
