Another tummy tuck question

I've got to know...will a Gynecologist do a tummy tuck at the same time as a hysterectomy? Even just a little bit of a tuck? Does anyone know? Or do you have to have a plastic surgeon there also? I plan to ask my doctor, but I am so curious to know if anyone has has a gyn that will do a tummy tuck.

Tummy tuck

A plastic surgeon would have to work along with the gyn to do the tummy tuck. Although it would be more convenient if the gyn did both procedures, you want someone who is VERY experienced. A plastic surgeon does tummy tucks every day. A gyn does hysterectomies every day. A hysterectomy goes deeper inside the body than the tummy tuck. Although the two procedures are in the same vicinity, they are really different kinds of surgery. Better to be safe than sorry, go with a pro.

Another tummy tuck question

My GYN surgeon said that he doesn't recommend tummy tucks at the same time as there is too great a risk of infection. He also told me that if it was done at the same time, and there were complications, they wouldn't know which surgery caused them. So, my belly is still the way it was, but, I'm healing and I'm not planning on going in for a tummy tuck. It's not a real deal breaker for me.

We are military and they are very strict on the rules and don't take chances. I know that there was a thread earlier about tummy tucks. If you search for tummy tuck I'm sure you can find it. Some ladies had them done and told about their experiences.
