This was, and still is also in the eye category.
It simply has not been answered.
In fact without an exam, I don't think we can tell you why the surgeon is saying this.
If you read the write up I gave you, you will see that there are several precautions and problems that need to be addressed with severe near sightedness in plastic surgery.
I would ask the current surgeon about these, and I would get a second opinion, hands on, with exam.
If the experts in the eye category want to jump in here, they will I am sure.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
