How Many Hours Would a Breast Augmentation and a Jaw Reduction Surgery Take Done Together?

Hi, I'm planning to get my breasts augmented (underarm incision, dual plane under the muscle, cohesive gel 250cc) and a jaw reduction surgery at the same time. My doctor said this would not be a problem but I don't want to be under anesthesia for too long. How long on average would the surgeries take when done together?

   A transaxillary augmentation typically takes about 30 minutes or so.  Much of the time depends upon whether blunt dissection is used or endoscopic dissection.  Kenneth Hughes, MD breast implants Los Angeles, CA
