Hello and thank you for your question.


This is a topic that is best discussed with a board certified plastic surgeon. There are many factors that determine a patient's risk for surgery. One would have to take a thorough medical history and physical to determine your risk for multiple procedures. Generally speaking, the risks of complications increase with more than 5 hours of surgery.

Good luck to you.

In healthy patients a tummy tuck can be part of multiple procedures.

It is impossible to comment on your particular situation but the combination of operations you lift is referred to as a mommy makeover. If you are in good health they can be performed concurrently.

I prefer not to do a TT and arm lift at the same setting. Many (rather most or all) patients need to use their arms to  get up from bed or chair after a TT, and this is way too much stress on healing arm incisions. The BBL could be done at the time of either procedure. 

All the best.
