Is it safe to under go a full tummy tuck & breast implants at the same time?

I am booked to have a full tummy tuck combined with lipo AND breast implants all in one surgery operation. Has anyone had this? If so what can I expect in terms of pain from both top & bottom @ the same time? Is it safe?

Hi TNYC,

The surgery you describe is fairly common and it's also known as a "mommy makeover" since it targets areas commonly affected by pregnancy (whether or not you're a mommy, I don't know). In fact, the mommy makeover is the #1 rated procedure on RealSelf right now (95% of patients deemed it "worth it") so you're in good company. :)

Check out our Mommy Makeover reviews to see how other RealSelfers feel about doing all of these procedures at once.

Best of luck to you!

I had two C-sections too and have had hanging skin for over 13 years. I weigh about 130 lbs. I want to get a full tummy tuck and a breast augmentation with a lift but I am scared. Is it worth it? Do you look great when you are done? Would you do it again?

After five pregnacies with two c-section deliveries; I had breast augmentation with tummy tuck two years ago. I am very pleased with the results. I regret not doing this sooner. I had a lot of excess skin that hung from below my belly button and a lot of stretch marks. It does look much better and my clothes fit much nicer. I would like to have my right breast "twicked" as the surgeon created a deeper pocket for the silcon implant on that side and there is a visible difference. The recovery was very intense. I thought the tummy tuck recovery and pain would be very similar to a c-section recovery. It wasn't. Once the drains were removed I felt that I finally started to heal and feel much better. The drain removal was another very painful procedure. I was not prepared for how they were to be removed. I would have preferred that the surgeon prepare me for what was going to happen instead of avoiding my line of questioning. Any further procedures I will search for another surgeon.
