Tummy tuck with hysterectomy?

Hey everybody. I'm new here. I love the site! I have a hysterectomy with rectoceole and cystoceole repair scheduled on the 23rd. My random question is, has anyone heard of doing a tummy tuck at the same time? It seems logical and it's something I've been looking into. I wonder if there's some way to get insurance to cover it since I will hit my deductible with the hysterectomy and after that everything is covered 100 percent. Thoughts? TIA!

I didn't have a tummy tuck but my dr did some "fixing" of my previous scar. Took about a inch and a bit.

Great idea!
Unfortunately, gyn's are not plastic surgeons.
If they were smart, they would figure out how to learn to do tummy tucks, and get certified to do them.
Right now, I think that the gyn does the hysterectomy first, then the plastic surgeon comes in to do his/her job with the tummy tuck.

Maybe the insurance covers this in other countries, but not in the U.S.

There was actually a sign in the washroom at my old gyno office saying if you were having abdominal surgery you could get a tummy tuck for $800. Guess they just coincide with the plastic surgeon.

You can email me the information if you like.
Thanks!

Re: Tummy tuck with hysterectomy?

Hehe... I would love it my doctor would take out some of the fat cells and give me a tummy tuck while she's got me open. I can ask, but she'll probably just grin & say no.

Grins,

Re: Tummy tuck with hysterectomy?

Thanks for all the replies ladies! Oh, and Misty, I also wouldn't mind knowing where that office is located that has the $800 tummy tucks.
I'm calling the plastic surgeon tomorrow to see if I can at least do the procedures one right after the other. Gyn's would certainly be smart to learn the TT procedure. Thanks again ladies!

Re: Tummy tuck with hysterectomy?

I doubt my gyn would do it. When I asked how much my uterus and ovaries weighed (they were quite large, as he described it), he laughed and told me that removal of body parts was not an effective weight loss strategy. Dealing with lots of women (and don't we all have some sort of body image issue?), I'm sure he gets that stuff all the time.

I'm pretty sure it's ok to post on here? But I'm in BC Canada.
