More details to this question:
I had a pannanconectomy done a few months ago due to medical issues. I gave consent for this surgery to be done also my insurance did. I was told by the surgeon and insurance company that they will not cover a full tummy tuck. Well the doctor did it anyways and put permanent sutures in me since then I been having stabbing constant pain I asked him why did he do it he says he didn't want his work to look bad. This has affected my life in a major way.
