My insurance approved a breast reduction, and I was given a discount to do the tummy tuck at the same time (I would be paying cash out-of-pocket) Dr Siwy told me that because of pregnancy I could do all the sit-ups in the world but my stomach muscles were tore apart and needed repaired. She also explained the hip to hip procedure with liposuction needed for the "back fat, muffin top". Directly after the surgery Dr Siwy was vacationing out of the country for 2wks; therefore she wouldn't be checking on me during my hospital stay or removing my drains the following week to 10days. Once I did see her for the follow up visit, I expressed my dissatisfaction especially with my belly button that wasn't healing properly. At that point I was informed she didn't sew the stomach muscles back together or perform the liposuction!! She said she "made the call and it would've only made a margin of a difference" THIS MARGIN IS EXACTLY WHAT I PAID FOR!!! She said nothing could be done until I healed atleast 6mo-1yr. So, I go back a month or so short of a year and she agrees that my sides are unproportioned and need fixed but wants ME to cover the cost!! When I tell her I won't and she needed to make it right she offered to cut the extra "chunk" off in her office!!! OMG nightmare!!!
