Anyone know about this: Tummy Tuck & Hysterectomy

I've read about some of the ladies here having both at the same time but their post were like 7 years ago. Has anyone else discussed this with their doctor recently? I'm just curious and might ask my doctor about just for kicks and giggles, as they say. Just to see what she says.

I don't think I'll be so lucky just b/c I'm having a DvH. Although it would be a GREAT early birthday present if it was covered by insurance too. wooo too. (and the dream sequence ENDS and reality walks in.)

Re: Anyone know about this: Tummy Tuck & Hysterectomy

A tummy tuck is generally performed by a plastic surgeon, not your gynecologist. You have to find a gynecologist and plastic surgeon who will work together, and then you have to find a date that works for all three of you. Also, most insurance companies do not cover the costs of the tummy tuck.

If you honestly want to have both procedures, it requires time and coordination to schedule both. The tummy tuck can't be added at the last minute so you need to talk to your doctor ASAP.

that's my issue...trying to find a gyno that will work with a plastic surgeon, they're not as "advanced thinking" around here

I jokingly said something to my dr and he recommended the ps and even set the app up so he could get things moving pretty fast

Re: Anyone know about this: Tummy Tuck & Hysterectomy

I go to see 2nd PS tomorrow and 2nd gyno next week. I wish our gyno's here would be more open to the idea of combining surgeries, but I'm determined to get my TT with the hyster. Dreamer, do you know what kind of hyster you're getting?

Re: Anyone know about this: Tummy Tuck & Hysterectomy

I am getting a TAH BOS so the ps is coming in making the first cut and than my dr will do the hystroctomy than the ps will come back and finish up. My dbf told me it was now or never this would be my one shot too have a tummy tuck done since I will be off work healing anyway. I am scared to death about doing this my surgery date is fast approaching 3/26 but will be glad when it's over once and for all.

Re: Anyone know about this: Tummy Tuck & Hysterectomy

Oh, wow - this is real? I joked with my doctor about it, actually, and he laughed and said, you wouldn't want to see it if I did it! I didn't really know they'd do it and combine both operations - how slick for you. Good luck with it all - you're going to be a whole new person.
