how long does a ps care for his patients, for example, a full tummy tuck?


I had a full tummy tuck in March of 2008. I need revisions done on my dog ear (left side) and front pouch. PS told me he would revise them for me when he moves to the new office, which will be equipped with its own OR. It will be a year next month (3/2009). I am worried that he will say he cannot do them. Thanks.
