Are there added risks when combining surgical procedures? Ask Dr Ellen
The straight up answer to your question is:
more procedures at one time = more complications and risks
There are no guarantees.
Thanks for asking! Dr Ellen
Doing tummy tuck with butt lift and breast augmentation/breast lift at the same time
It's possible to have all these procedures done at same time but there are increased risks associated with prolong surgical time and anesthesia duration. There are several considerations for determining whether these combination of procedure should be performed at the same time. One concern regarding tummy tuck, breast augmentation and Brazilian buttock lift is how are you going to position yourself during the recovery period after the surgery. I like my patients to be in supine position after breast augmentation and tummy tuck. I like my patients to be in prone position after BBL. You may find it to be very difficult if you had BBL and tummy tuck/Breast augmentation at the same time. How are you going to rest after your surgery without possibly affecting the result? Yes, with a healthy patient and today's technology, you can have all of the above procedures all at once. But why? Especially with higher risks.
Regarding safety of combination plastic surgery procedures including tummy tuck, brazilian butt lift, and breast lift/augment
Thanks for your question!
When procedures are combined, the potential for complication increases. This is largely due to the amount of time spent under general anesthesia with the increased risk for developing deep venous thromboses (blood clots) and pulmonary embolism, a potentially fatal problem. The other less threatening problems such as infection, bleeding, hematoma, seroma, and wound healing issues, also generally trend upwards when combination procedures are performed.
In general, I try to break up long procedures into smaller ones when my operative time exceeds 6 hours. If concerned, I will often admit the patient overnight at the hospital for monitoring and this has given me and the patients peace of mind and an additional layer of safety.
One last tip; start with a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in your desired surgery. It is okay to ask the doctor directly and also ask for before and after photos. Investigate the doctor to make sure that he is board certified by checking his/her properly spelled last name at abms.org
Good luck with your decision!

Breast Aug, Full Breast Lift, and Tummy Tuck at the Same Time
I think that if you are otherwise healthy and if your breasts are not grossly asymmetric, the likelihood is that all can be performed at the same time in a safe manner. The tummy tuck may take 1.5 hrs, the augmentation 15 minutes, and the full breast lift 2 hrs (if you only need a circumareolar or vertical this may only take 45 minutes or an hour).
Multiple Procedures can be performed at the same time
Mommy makeover procedures take a lot of time to perform. A safe time limit is 6 hours, if your surgeon feels that the surgery can be performed in this time frame than you should be OK. Otherwise I would separate the procedures and stage them 3-6 months apart.
Combined procedures and safety
There are couple considerations for multiple procedures done at the same time. Obviously, the safety should be our number one concern. With several procedures, the operative time could be very long. As operative time gets longer, complication rate (infection, bleeding) becomes higher. In addition, your recovery will be tougher with so many surgeries all over your body. Some patients may want multiple surgery in one session to avoid multiple recovery. However, it will be best to limit surgery so that the operative time is less than 6-8 hours.
Risk of multiple procedures
I think that you have to consider the location of the incisions and whether they will be pulling against each other. Longer operations have a greater risk of complications such as infection or blood clots. I would discuss this carefully with your surgeon.
Is It Safe to Have Tt Bbl and Bl with Ba at the Same Tiime?
My inclination would be to do the TT and breast surgery as a first stage, then proceed later with the liposuction and BBL. Part of this would depend on the nature of the breast lift and how long that would take, and that can vary a lot depending on what is needed.
I prefer to keep outpatient OR times to 4 hours, many others will go to 6. Many operative risks increase with longer OR times. The usual standard is that for surgery longer than 6 hours, patients should be observed (admitted) overnight, and that can prohibitively add to cost.
Each surgeon will have a slightly different opinion, but safety is the primary consideration.

Mommy makeover with Brazilian Butt Lift, Abdominoplasty, and Breast Augmentation
My guess is that you are pushing the envelope for the number of procedures that can be safely accomplished in one setting. The downside of combining brazilian butt lift with any procedure is the positioning. The factors to consider are 1. what are the donor sites for the fat going to be 2. how long does your surgeon take to perform the procedures and 3. are you going to be spending the night in the hospital to recover.
I personally do not like to perform brazilian butt lift in combination with any procedures that require you to be supine. If I were going to split up your procedures, I would go with BBL first so that I could harvest the fat from your abdomen. Three months later you could get the TT and Breast Augment.
Good luck with your surgeries
This sounds like a lot of surgery to be having at the same time. I think it is insane and to do all of these at once
