Ventral repair/tummy tuck: how flat will I be? (Photo)
I am having a ventral hernia repair with myofascial release to bring the rectus midline and plicated with permanent sutures, possibly a partially absorbable mesh for reinforcement, plus playing for a full tummy tuck for the skin and belly button. I am not doing lipo. How flat should I expect my stomach to be? I am 5 foot 6, 175 lbs but fairly muscular. My stomach is pretty flat when lying down. Also, is this a surgery a plastic could do alone? (I'm having a general too). Thank you.
