I had Vaser Liposuction last year in my hips, thighs, and lower part of my butt. I don't think that I'm a good candidate for a Brazillian Butt Lift due to limited fat but I have some loose skin in my back thighs and some sagging from my butt that I want picked up. I also want breast implants; can I get both done at the same time? What is the recovery time for them? I only have 2 weeks off.

Tough times ahead with Breast Aug and Butt Lift
Yes you can have a Butt lift and Breast Implants during the same surgical encounter. I would caution you as to the discomfort and difficulty during the immediate post operative period. Patients are usually required to avoid sitting or lying on the buttocks for a period of at least 2 weeks after the Butt Lift. Not being able to lie on your back makes recovering from the Breast Enlargement difficult as far as being in a comfortable position after surgery. I have frequently suggested my patients lie on their sides with a large body pillow between the legs for support. Many patients have found that position to be uncomfortable but acceptable. And remember if liposuctin is done as a component of the Butt Lift those areas (possibly the abdomen and the flanks) will be affected as well. So yes it can be done and you can return to work in 2 weeks. If you could possibly arrange it you might find the recovery easier if you could do the procedures separately. Either way the results should not be adversely affected. Good Luck.
Breast and Buttock surgery can be performed at the same time
BBL and breast augmentation
Breast augmentation can be done at the same time in suitable patients, but it can make your recovery much more awkward and uncomfortable. Remember - you won't be able to sit on your butt after a BBL, and you can't lie on your front because of your breast augmetnation.

Think long and hard about Buttock Lift
My best advice for you: go ahead and get your breasts done but think long and hard about any buttock lift the scar is significant and likely not a good trade-off for the degree of improvement you would get.
Breast Implants and Traditional Butt Lift vs Brazilian Butt Lift
Thank you for your question. Yes, it's possible to have a traditional butt lift (more commonly known as a body lift) with a breast augmentation, but be sure that is the route you want to go. It is very different from a Brazilian Butt Lift, which will leave you with little liposuction scars. A traditional butt/body lift will leave you with a significant scar across the top of your butt.
Although both will reduce the looseness of your buttock skin, the results look different. Whereas a Brazilian Butt Lift will fill out your butt, a traditional butt/body lift will make it look flatter. So make sure that your expectations are in line with the results. Speak with an experienced plastic surgeon who has performed plenty of both to help you decide.

Breast augmentation and a butt lift at the same time
A butt lift is an effective way to change the position and contour of your butt. This can be done at the same time as other procedures including a breast augmentation. If receiving this combination, be sure that you discuss the recovery process at length with your plastic surgeon. They may recommend certain positions that you should avoid to prevent placing too much tension onto the incisions. Think carefully about recovery process and if it seems too difficult or inconvenient, consider receiving these procedures separately.
