Multiple Procedures together safe? If not, how long between procedures? (photos)

Multiple surgeries at one time.
Be careful and be sure that you're combining these procedures for the right reasons. Each one of these procedures could easily take up to three hours or more if performed separately. Safety as well as doing the best job that one possibly can should be the number one concern, not how fast one can perform a procedure. Aggressively harvesting fat from the abdomen and then performing a tummy tuck can lead to vascular compromise. Can the two be performed together? Sure, but why take the chance for procedures that are purely elective? There are also logistical reasons for not combining a tummy tuck and a bbl. That being said, talk to 20 plastic surgeons and you might receive 10 different answers. Good luck with your decision.

Thank you for your question. In my opinion, a TT may be combined with the BBL, and in some situations, a TT may be necessary to achieve the desired contour and shape. In similar situations, I have chosen to do either a TT or a breast reduction/lift, not both, at the time of the BBL. You'll always find differing opinions among plastic surgeons. Perhaps a second visit to the two surgeons you most comfortable with help you clarify your choice. Best of luck.
