possible tummy tuck with TAH?

Hello

I was given a suggestion recently that I am going to check out. Has anyone else had a tummy tuck during a TAH? I am 46 and after years of infertility meds, miscarriages, one successful prenancy, and other medical issues, I have a tummy that looks like I am 7 months pregnant. Really, people ask me all the time when am I due, or tell me to eat more because I am eating for two! I am totally self-conscious about this. I have succeeded in losing and keeping off quite a bit of weight in the last 2.5 years (about 50lbs) but none of the weight came off of my tummy. So I have a consult with a plastic surgeon next week to see if I can combine a tummy tuck with my TAH. My gyn/onc said that this is a great option for me and gave me several referrals.

Anyone have info on this mixed type of surgery?

Thanks, Stasia

Your lucky your GYN is open to that. Mine won't even hear of it. My mom had both done at the same time and it worked out well. I look like I'm about 5-6 months pregnant and would love a tummy tuck but my Dr. keeps saying the longer you are under the more at risk you are. I think she just doesn't want the hassle. So I guess I will get the Hysterectomy done and then see how I look. Good luck 2 you! I would do it if I could!

Hi!

If you do a search on "tummy tuck" you'll find that many other (((sisters))) have done what you're contemplating.

You'll have to pay for a second surgical team, BUT you'll save $$ because you'll only have one hospital stay, one anesthesiologist, etc... I hope things work out for you.

I had a panniculectomy (which is a cousin of the tummy tuck) along with my hysterectomy. I am glad I did it.

I did it too, many others have as well. Though there is more risk involved, unless you have other medical issues, the risk is quite small. I wouldn't let your gyn change your mind...if this is what you want, it can be done. Also, it makes the job of your gyn much easier! The PS is the one who does the incision as well as the closing up.
