Advice on multiple surgeries...
Combination of procedures making a mommy makeover are safe and properly selected patients.
Your surgical plan seems reasonable.
- A tummy tuck and breast reduction are often done together.
- Liposuction of the flanks and mid abdomen is often a part of a tummy tuck
- Liposuction of the sides of the chest is often a part of a breast reduction.
- If you have major medical issues, if surgery will take more than 6 hours or if you want additional areas of liposuction your surgeon is likely to suggest you divide the operations.
Hope you found this answer helpful. Best wishes.

Having multiple procedures
It is often safe to have multiple procedures performed, but it will depend on the extent of what you would like done and your health history. There is a limit to the amount of liposuction that can be done in conjunction with a tummy tuck due to concerns of blood supply and healing. The best advice is to visit with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss your surgical goals and see if one trip to the operating room will suffice, or if you would be wise to stage the procedures.
