Hello my wonderful doctors, I just want to explain my situation and then i need your advice. I've lost 130 lbs and i have too much of excess skin. I feel healthy. I had my MGB surgery in Aug, 2010. I had my tummy tuck May, 2012. Since i am an international student here in the USA, and i am graduating this. I was thinking about doing Thighs Lift Surgery and Gynecomastia Surgery at once before i leave to home country. Do you think it is a good idea? I trust my surgeon. what do you think?

Thigh Lift Surgery and Gynecomastia Surgery at the Same Time
Thigh lift surgery and gynecomastia correction or male breast reduction surgery can be performed together. I am sure that the surgeon you have been seeing can fully explain what is involved and necessary recovery period. Kenneth Hughes, MD thighlift Los Angeles, CA

Gynecomastia and thigh surgery
It is certainly possible to have a thigh lift and gynecomastia surgery performed at the same time but more information is needed to determine if you are qualified and a good candidate.
