Find another surgeon if your original one isn't seeing you

If your surgeon doesn't want to see you then you should find another one that's board certified and reputable. Your muscles may have been tightened too much and not enough skin was removed, but you'll need a physical exam to make sure. You may want to request your surgical records from your original surgeon to show to your new one.

Hi.

You have two different problems.  I don't know about the burning feeling, but the hanging skin should certainly be improved.
