Fat grafting and tummy tuck
Liposuction and fat transfer with a tummy tuck
Patients however must be in good medical condition to undergo the extended procedure. The recovery time is somewhat longer but the combined procedure avoids the need of undergoing two separate procedures.

Tummy Tuck and fat transfer can be performed at the same time
The feasability of the procedure depends on each patients anatomy and expectations. Sometimes it is best to separate the procedures and other times it is best to perform them together. Please see a board certified plastic surgeon who performs this procedure frequently and is close to where your live, to provide adequate follow up for this procedure.
Abdominoplasty and BBL
Generally a Brazilian butt lift should proceed in abdominoplasty.
Tummy tuck, lipo and BBL
Tummy tuck lips and Brazilian butt lift at same time
If you have a Tummy tuck and BBL done at the same time, how are you going to avoid lying on your back, face up when the tummy tuck prevents you from lying face down? I recommend that the BBL be done first to utilize the abdominal fat which would otherwise be discarded with the tummy tuck. After a minimum of three months , the patient is brought back and the TT is performed.
Always seek out the opinion of a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with years of experience in liposuction and fat transfers. Furthermore request to see before and after photos of previous patients by that doctor....not a clinic or surgery center. Do your homework......research and verify the doctor's credentials. Have they had problems with the Board of Medicine, disciplinary or otherwise. Any law suits?
How about the center, clinic or facility? Are they accredited by a national organization or do they just have State approval. Understand that at the current time, there are three nationally recognized organizations responsible for the highest levels of patient safety, AAAASF, AAACH and JCHO. You owe it to yourself to position yourself for the best possible results but under the most stringent safety regulations, If you have kids, even more so.
How about anesthesia? Will you have a medical doctor certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology or a certified nurse anesthetist (CRNA)? Understand that there is no substitute for research. Cosmetic surgery, no matter how simple it may be to the patients, are invasive procedures and as such carry certain risks and complications.
In our office we use TouchMD which is a web based program in which patients have the ability to load their picture unto the program. We can accommodate patients from as far away as California. I then evaluate them and can actually draw on the picture to show a potential patient where the incisions would be located and how the procedure is to be realized. It's all done to comply with HIPPA which is the federal law that protects the patient's medical information. Look them up. Good luck
Find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with experience on combined procedures and you shouldn't have any problems.
