It's Up to You
Staged Procedures Have Lower Risk
However, the risk of complications increases when surgery lasts longer than 5 hours and when multiple procedures are performed together. These risks include infection, wound problems, and most notably deep vein thrombosis (blood clots). The risk of blood clots when tummy tuck only is performed is about .3%. When you combine a tummy tuck with additional procedures, the risk goes up to around 1%. This is still a low number, and still is considered safe, but it is three times the risk doing the combined procedure.
I generally prefer to stage a tummy tuck and Brazilian butt lift, for example, in order to reduce this risk, and I make every effort to ensure that cost is not a barrier to safely staging complex procedures.
