I have dreamed about having surgery since I was 18 after i had my first child, 21 yrs later I’m ready to jump in head first. Im in the nyc, long island area.
I attended a consultation and was told i had a hernia, a went to a specialist to get a second opinion and was assured ….its a hernia. Can anyone recommend a surgeon that performs surgeries in a hospital , since my coverage covers the hernia , I would like an abdominal (tummy tuck) reconstruct and tighten my tummy, a non mesh procedure would be great, since i hear the mesh can cause more pain. someone who does more of a muscular tummy not flat , breast augmentation, smartlipo/fat grafting for bulges around my waist, bra back area,under arms a little. the smartlipo/fat grafting would not be major as i weigh 145 lbs and pretty fit.( a mommy make over). my question … since my coverage covers the hernia and for the plastic surgery i would be paying out of pocket 1. how many surgeons are allowed to operate on you in a surgery room 2..is it possible to find a surgeon who can do the entire procedure 3… since the procedure is being performed with my hernia surgery , how much money should i expect to save? also 4….lol how do you find an american board certified surgeon in nyc, that also does surgeries in other countries example in the dominican republic since the cost is 50% more attractive then doing it anywhere else? as for the hernia surgery i would have that done in nyc hospital? I know this is long but i really need your help.
