Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift with Augmentation
I have performed many of these mommy makeover combinations with full breast lift, and young, healthy people do well with these surgeries. Part of this depends upon the time taken for the procedures. In my practice, this sequence takes less than 4 hrs. Kenneth Hughes, MD breast augmentation Los Angeles, CA
Combining or Staging Breast Augmentation/Lift and Tummy Tuck
Thank you for your inquiry.
Many variables are to be considered in order to answer your question.
Usually, both surgeries are of a moderate intensity over the patient's body but without a physical examination, present health history and the results of lab combining both surgeries may not be a safe approach.
It is true that staging those surgeries is not uncommon, hence more financial responsibilities result from doing so. But, surgeons tend to approach such a project differently depending on ones abilities and preferences.
However, at the end of the day it is the patient's decision to choose the surgeon of preference hence the surgical plan offered with this decision.
As a foot note, combining both moderate surgeries is often the choice adopted by patients and experienced surgeons.
That being said, please remember that commendable results require an exceptionally skilled surgeon to perform the surgery and settling for anything less than that increases the chances of additional corrective surgeries dramatically.
I hope this helps and please feel free to check the website below.
The best of luck to you.

Combining Tummy Tuck and Breast Augmentation? #breastimplants
Not at all. You may want to stay in an overnight stay facility though. It can be uncomfortable to have all of that surgery and then go home. It is nice to have nursing staff around to help you get up and down and to bring you medication when needed. If you are healthy you should be fine to proceed.

In our practice we do 2-3 procedures at one time, one anesthesia one recovery. It has a lot to do with how your surgeon feels. We use another Certified PS to help with the suturing to get you out of anesthesia faster and safer.
BAM and Tummy tuck
Most plastic surgeons are quite comfortable doing both of these procedures at the same time. I perform them together regularly. It will save you considerably on operating room fees and other expenses.
Most surgeons will feel comfortable combining procedures
Thank you for the question. Combining a tummy tuck and breast augmentation with or without a lift is considered a safe combination of procedures by most plastic surgeons. Most of my patients choose to undergo the combined procedures.
All the best

Combining augmentation with tummy tuck
There are good reasons to combine these two procedures. These include:
1). One recovery,
2). One anesthesia.
3). Cost savings.
The bottom line is, can the two procedures be performed safely together?
The answer should be yes.
Good luck with your decision,

Combo Tummy/Breast Surgery
If you are healthy this is very common to do at the same time. While there is always some risk, I do not believe you compound it much by doing breast surgery at the same time as a tummy tuck.
Can A Tummy Tuck And Breast Lift/Augmentation Be Done Safely At One Time?
A tummy tuck/lift augmentation is the quintessence of a Mommy Makeover. Board Certified plastic surgeons who routinely do Mommy Makeover procedures would do these two procedures with possibly some liposuction or even a labiaplasty at the same time.
Obviously, these procedures are only safe if done by a Board Certified plastic surgeon in a certified surgery center with a Board Certified anesthesiologist. Your pre operative health is of paramount importance. Having a dedicated team or individual to take care of you post operatively becomes as important as the surgery.
Choosing the right Board Certified plastic surgeon, seeing before and after pictures of combined procedures, and speaking with at least one or more of his or her patients who had the combined procedures, having a plan for post op care which allows you sufficient recovery time are all part and parcel of answering the question of whether the combined procedures are safe or not.
In choosing your plastic surgeon, be sure he or she is able to give you the months of follow up needed to have a successful surgery. Don't forget, surgery doesn't end at surgery. It ends when you have the best post operative scars your genetics will allow.
