Breast augmentation and liposuction

Downtime for a breast augmentation and liposuction varies. If you can do desk work, I would say you probably can go back to work in a week.  But you have to limit exertion for 4-6 weeks.

Breast Augmentation and Smartlipo - Together? Downtime?

The breast augmentation is the more painful of the 2 operations. So go ahead and have the two operations at the same time. Regards and Good Luck.

You can do both at the same ime

There is no reason that you can not do lipo and augmentation at the same time. The down time will be about 5-7 day and it is because of the augmentation.

Breast augmentation combined with Smartlipo can be done

Breast augmentation and Smartlipo can easily be combined together.  Whether you proceed with breast augmentation alone or decide to add the Smartlipo, the convalescence would still remain the same.  For a law-enforcement officer, the convalescence would probably be recommended at about 3-4 weeks.  However, if you would like to proceed with only a Smartlipo, the convalescence is much shorter (about 4-7 days).  Hope this helps.
