Tummy Tuck after Epigastric Hernia Repair

Tummy Tuck

I had a tummy tuck consultation yesterday, and the plastic surgeon informed me that I need to have my epigastric hernia repair first since he is unable to combine both procedures due to the size of the hernia. How soon AFTER having an epigastric hernia repair (w/mesh) can I have a tummy tuck?

Breast lift with augmentation issues- HELP!

Breast Lift

It has been 1 year and 4 months since my initial surgery. The surgeon had to correct his work with a 2nd procedure. My areolas are so scarred and almost look mangled. One implant is obviously larger and lower than the other. The scarring is horrible. I did everything I was told to do during the healing process. What can I do about this if anything? I'm really unhappy with the results.

Failed implant or not?

Breast Augmentation

I had a breast reconstruction with implant under the muscle 7 weeks ago. After week 1 I developed a seroma that drained for 5 weeks. Didn’t respond to antibiotics so culture threw E.coli. Did 9 days of IM Ertapenem to save the surgery. Breast feels that pulls when I use the muscle. Draining stoped but how do I know if I will have to remove the implant or if antibiotics were enough? My PS is abroad
