Back in the seventies I had gallbladder surgery which left a 10 inch scar on the upper part of my abdomen. Subsequently I had a tubal ligation which left a two inch scar below my navel, and then had a partial hysterectomy which left four tiny scars from the laser surgery. I have lost 60 pounds and have a lot of loose skin that hangs down to my thighs. I want to have a tummy tuck. Can it be done with my extensive surgical history?
Yes, the surgery can be done with no increased risk to you than the average person without your history. Other medical conditions such as diabetes, etc. may interfere with healing.
