My Third Surgery to Correct my Belly Button - New York, NY

I had my tummy tuck and silicone breast implants...

I had my tummy tuck and silicone breast implants all at the same time,(he put the breast implants through my stomach) after surgery my stomach was burning I had narcosis on my incision and my belly button. I could not stand up straight for months.. Had wound care for months... After one year had my surgery to correct my scars... Just had my second surgery in march for my belly button again. We tried everything laser treatment , steroids injection.my doctor can't fix this he said we can't do anything else. Why did I get nacrosis after 3 sections? What can I do now, my belly button is destroyed. Any suggestion?

Could you be diabetic or have some other chronic condition? People with DM often have terrible healing...it's so unfair. I would get other opinions if I were you. Good luck and thank you for posting. It's scary but we all need to know. My BB doesn't seem to be healing 17 days post op TT. Just hoping the polysporin & twice daily cleansing with hydrogen peroxide will keep it clean so it can heal.
