Breast Implants and Traditional Butt Lift at the Same Time?

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

Breast and body surgery can be combined together at the same operative setting.  One to two weeks recovery should be enough.  If you are doing fat transfer you may want to consider placing fat in the buttocks and breasts and avoid implants all together!!!

Good Luck!

BBL and breast augmentation

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
When you don't have a lot of fat on your body, you can consider gaining some weight before your surgery to have the supply. I recommend seeing plastic surgeon to determine if you have a brazilian butt lift before deciding on butt implants. 

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.

You appear to be a good candidate for a buttocks lift.  Implants may be done at the same time.  Most patients return to work in one week so two weeks off should be fine.

Think long and hard about Buttock Lift

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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.

Far more important than the technique is the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Choose your surgeon rather than the technique and let them explain why one technique may be better than another.  Please visit my page on finding the right doctor at on some suggestions on finding the most qualified Plastic Surgeon for a BBL Always insist on a board certified plastic surgeon. 

Candidates for Buttock Augmentation surgery desire an enhancement in the buttock area to offer a more balanced, defined or shapelier contour to the body. There appears to be two different groups of patients seeking the procedure. One group of patients is younger and has goals of transforming their bodies into more curvaceous figures, like popular Hollywood stars, J. Lo or Beyonce Knowles. The other group of patients is women that have aged and would like to restore a more youthful backside with buttock fullness to replace now sagging areas. Men have also been requesting buttock implants as well.

Breast Implants and Traditional Butt Lift vs Brazilian Butt Lift

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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 Implants Combined with Buttocks Lift

You can absolutely combine a breast augmentation with a buttocks lift.  In general, I would plan for approximately 10 days off from work.  Best of luck!

Can I have a but lift and breast augmentation at the same time

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Yes it is reasonable to plan on having both procedures done at the same time. The longer recovery will be for the but lift. Assuming that your recovery process is uncomplicated you should be able to return to most forms of employment after 2 weeks. It will be very important to follow your surgeon's postoperative instructions to make sure that your recovery is uneventful. Good luck
