Combining breast reduction with liposuction
Thank you for your question about combination cosmetic surgery, e.g. breast reduction and liposuction, tummy tucks with breast lifts or enlargement.
- Most of my breast reductions include liposuction of the side of the chest since most women have excess fat here when their breasts are large.
- Most of my tummy tuck patients also have a breast lift or other breast surgery.
- The surgeon to be able to advise you about risks and minimize blood clots. At times, single procedures are best. Hope this helps. Best wishes.
Performing Multiple Procedures?
Thank you for the question. Combination surgical procedures are done on a routine basis. However, it is best to evaluate each patient on an individualized basis. During this consultation process, after a complete history and physical, the SAFETY of combining these surgical procedures becomes of paramount importance. Factors such as selection of plastic surgeon, exact procedures planned, estimated blood loss, duration of surgery, recovery considerations, anesthesia provider, duration of surgery, surgery facility are all important considerations.
Almost 95% of the patients have multiprocedures in only one time , this depends on specials conditions of each patient such as weight , comorbity( wich is presence of illness) Condtions as overweight ,smoking , Asthma , Anemia and some others limit the number of procedures that que can be perform in a patient at the same time

Multiple procedures at one time
It is quite popular to have multiple procedures at one time. I would say more than 1/2 my patients combine procedures.
Combined Breast and Body Contouring Procedures
Breast and body contouring procedures are safely performed in one surgical setting in certain candidates. Patients must be of normal weight, nonsmokers, and free from medical problems. Your surgeon must also be able to perform the procedure efficiently to keep operating room times within safe limits. Mommy makeover is a term that describes breast surgery combined with waistline contouring which may involve tummy tuck or liposuction. Breast surgery can involve augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction. In my practice, "mommy makeover" surgery is very common. So to answer your question, a high percentage, provided the patient is a good candidate.
