Breast Augmentation and Liposculpture are usually done at the same time

Usually we do these two procedures together. However, if you're doing them separately leave about three weeks between the two. But you're probably a lot better off doing them together.

Simultaneous breast augmentation and liposculpture

In many cases, we perform these procedures together.  However, should you choose to do one at a time, allow enough time for bruising and swelling to subside from the first procedure. That could mean waiting one month. However, meeting in person with a board-certified plastic surgeon will give you the best information. Best of luck.

Liposculpture/Liposuction and Breast Augmentation Safely At Same Surgery


As healing occurs simultaneously and not sequentially most patients have both Breast Augmentation and Liposculpture or Liposuction at during the same surgery. If you wanted for some reason to separate the surgeries I would wait 6 weeks or more between them.

Liposuction and Breast Augmentation?


Thank you for the question.

Generally these two procedures are done together.  If for some reason you need to space them out you should wait at least one month in between operations.

Best wishes.

How Long After Liposculpture Can You Get Breast Augmentation?


Most patients get both at the same time. It adds 30 minutes to surgery time. If you wish to have them separately, then a few weeks is a reasonable wait between the procedures.

One can get a breast augmentation immediately after liposculpture.


These two operations are often done concurrently.  If they are chosen to be done in a staggered fashion, there is no waiting period between the procedures.

Liposcultpture and breast implant augmentation surgery


These procedures are commonly performed simultaneously, However, if you are having these performed separately, I would advise waiting about 3 months. It is common to see the belly swell after breast implants so do not be surprised by this.

Liposcultpture and implants


You can probably get liposuction and have implants inserted in the same operative setting. If you have the liposuction first, you may want to wait until you  heal from the liposuction.
