Is a tummy-tuck a breast lift and some work to my Buttocks and thigh liposuction too much for one surgery? (photo)

Can I Have a Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift, Brazilian Butt Lift and Full Body Liposuction at the Same Time?
Liposuction is not an option for you, because you could not remove enough at one time to make a difference. Weight loss is your only option there. The tummy tuck would not be satisfactory because of the excess weight and also because a lot of fat is stored inside the abdomen making it impossible to do a good tummy tuck. Eventually with weight loss and multiple staged procedures you can start working on your surgical goals.
How many procedures at once????
Weight loss and body contouring
Thank you for the great photos. You cannot go wrong with losing weight and getting to a BMI of 30 or less just as some of the other doctors have recommended. In terms of surgery, I would probably just do the tummy and the liposuction first and come back for the breasts at a later time. An extended tummy tuck and liposuction of several areas may take about 5 hours. Definitely look at what you would like to accomplish most and then prioritize from there. I have definitely performed tummy tuck and breast cases together so its possible and it is safe. The question will eventually be how much time will be spent on the liposuction part.
All the best,

I believe that the procedures you've mentioned would be ideal after loosing weight, as of right now my best recommendation to get you started would be a bariatric surgery, followed by plastic surgery.
What is your BMI
The ideal candidate for a tummy tuck has a BMI under 30 -- look up yours, it is a relationship between y our height and weight. Also go talk to a board certified plastic surgeon and see what your options are. I think for you, it is best to loose some weight first and stage the surgery.
Multiple Cosmetic Procedures
One of the other replies to your question made a good suggestion about weight loss. I agree that if you can drop some weight (and keep it off!) then you should do so prior to surgery.
Best of luck!

Based upon your BMI and amounts of surgery desired the issue is one of safety and you surviving the operation/s. I recommend a staged operative events. Stage I full TT, + liposuction with fat transfer. Stage II in3 months after first a full let breasts + more lipo and fat transfer. You cash find a doc to try and do all the surgeries in one setting but very risky....
Think About Recovery...
Also think about your recovery, in terms of discomfort. If you have procedures on the back (buttock work) AND the front (breast work), how are you going to rest? Does your plastic surgeon recommend this? Think about your desire to return to work and how much time you have planned to take off. Will you have help after surgery? Do you have small children? Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon about sitting down after buttock work as well.
Ultimately, this is a decision that you need to make with the help of your plastic surgeon and your home support group. Best of luck!
Staging of procedures for safety
thanks for your question. I highly recommend staging your procedures for your safety. For example you can start with an abdominoplasty and breast lift first, then have your Brazilian butt lift and full body liposuction at your second stage in 3-6 months. This way you will undergo your procedures safely and at the same time allow your body to recover before proceeding with the next procedures. Good luck and take care!
