Revision Pannulectomy Under Local Anesthesia?
I had a Pannulectomy (major tummy tuck & muscle repair) in July 2006 while we were stationed in South Korea. There were some bad dog ears on both sides, plus a golf ball size lump left of my belly button. I am having a revision done, and I was wondering if it is normal to do that under local anesthesia? It seems scary. He said he has to go 6 inches farther on the right and 5 inches farther on the left, so basically nearly all the way around to my spine. They said they do them all under local.
