post trans flap hernia

I live in New York State and am 2 yr post op Trans flap.  Because of adhesions on my muscle on my right side, the muscles on my left side were used to reconstruct my left breast.  I now have a 2 large hernia's, one in the lower abdominal and 1 mid drift between the belly button and left breast.  I also have pain and tightness all over my stomach. I consulted with 2 surgeons, one who did the original operation and they both told me they could not do the repair surgery.  They said they were unable to perform the operation because there was no where to anchor the mesh.  How do I find a top specialist to help me as the hernia's are getting larger?
