Mommy Makeover and BBL makes sense for many
Mommy makeover with BBL
Best of luck,
Am I a BBL and mommy-makeover candidate?
However, in my opinion, the best results come with staging the procedures. I like to do the BBL first, as I can liposuction your entire trunk and harvest the maximal amount of fat possible to transfer. Many times that transfer of fat includes some fat to the sides or the hips and buttocks area to shape the area, not just augment. So I ask my patients not to sit and to sleep on their bellies for at least two weeks to maximize fat graft survival. You do not want that pressure on your buttocks for the first couple of weeks after the fat transfer to maximize fat graft survival rate. When you do a tummy tuck you will be sitting and sleeping on your back in a flexed position which puts pressure on your buttocks. So to answer your question, it is highly unlikely that all 4 procedures can be done well within 6 hours total anesthesia time by one surgeon. For the best results, I suggest you do the BBL first followed by the tummy tuck and breast augmentation a few weeks to a couple months later as these have the best post op positioning combinations. Hope this helps and best of luck.

Try to research this to find the surgeon who consistently produces the results you would expect. Look at reviews on this site and see who gets the surgery right every time.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

- Youlook like an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck and breast aug. I don't see any need for any kind of breast lift. Donor sites for a butt fat augmentation may be a bit limited. Assuming your health is good you likely will do well. Seek out an experienced board certified surgeon in your area.
