Portland, OR area PS's who will do a TT without General Anesthesia?

Hi. I just posted my pics online and both PS's who answered told me that some sort of skin tightening surgery above and below the belly button will be the solution to remove the excess skin. Apparently I don't have any muscle separation so would not need MR. I checked out the websites of both PS's who answered my question and they both only to TT under general anesthesia. Only. Period. I am not a fan of getting general for any elective surgery for many reasons, but the main reason is that there is a family history of complications from it, which means that for someone like me it should be avoided. After a ton of research, I have found only 3 PS's that don't use general for TTDr 1- In Tualatin. Honestly this PS would be my first choice, but after contacting his office i was told that he wouldn't do my surgery because he does all of his procedures in his surgical suite and because of the family hx I would need the surgery done in a hospital.. Super sad about this because he seems like the best.. but i understand :(Dr 2- does all of his TT's with epidural and iv sedation and has great reviews, but he is in the Seattle area, and the thought of traveling for this surgery seems very cumbersome. I'd like to stay in Portland. Dr 3- In Lake O. But has had some less than favorable reviews and seems to have had a lawsuit a few years back which makes me nervous. The research is getting really exhausting. I have to think there are more PS's who would do the TT with either IV sedation or epidural. Can anyone please point me in the right direction?
