Has anyone had Dr Connell perform an abdominoplasty with full plication (diastasis rectified) and/or hernia repair? I know he traditionally only performs breast surgery but I'm thinking of having my breastfed boobies done at the same time, which Ive heard is an exception to his rule if you're having breast surgery too?! I've been told my situation is not an easy one given the extent of my diastasis, an existing mesh inserted from previous hernia repair, another hernia present, and not a lot of spare skin to hide behind, possibly not enough to do a traditional TT. Therefore my dilemma is I want the best surgeon for both my surgeries, but would prefer the one surgeon to do both at the same time. My stomach is more important than my boobs but I do love the sounds of dr Connell. Anyone with similar experiences that can comment would be really much appreciated! thank you!!
Hi Ladies, I'm just hoping for some feedback on costs of your Tummy Tuck surgeries and length of stay needed in hospital. Financially I don't want to stay in hospital at all after the surgery...it's just so crazy expensive on top of an already expensive procedure. However, I do actually WANT to stay in hospital (away from the 3 kids) so I can recover properly. Champagne taste beer budget! I am yet to have an initial appointment with any Plastic Surgeons yet (I'm in Brisbane)... but I'm not sure if certain plastic surgeons use more expensive hospitals, or force you to stay in longer etc... I've been quoted roughly over the phone $19,000 inclusive of a 7 night stay. YIKES! I've got pretty bad diastasis recti up to my ribs, an an umbilical hernia so it won't be just a mini tummy tuck either. So would love to hear if you've seen a plastic surgeon and NOT stayed in for more than one night... Was it manageable? Has anyone managed to find a TT for under $13k including several nights in hospital in Brisbane? (after this ridiculous new 'abdominoplasy is not deemed medical' change from medicare?) Also, any feedback on Anthony Kane, Paul Belt, Alys Saylor or Susan O'Mahony? Thanks in advance!
