What is involved in a tummy tuck with artificial dermis inserted?
I had a mini tummy tuck 21 months ago with muscle tightening. The tightening did not work and my stomach still bulged every time I ate or drank anything. The operation was repeated 9 months ago and I'm still having the same problem. I look 4 to 5 months pregnant every time I eat. My surgeon has suggested having another operation to tighten the muscles by using an artificial dermis (from a pig I believe) as he didn't want to use mesh due to risk of infection etc. Does anybody know anything about this or had it done, any ideas on cost? Thanks.
