Tummy tuck and breast augmentation - how soon before liposuction?
- Thank you for your question about your mommy make-over.
- You will probably feel LOTS better after a breast augmentation and tummy tuck.
- Your flanks (the sides) can have liposuction at the time of the tummy tuck.
- Some surgeons would do back liposuction at the same time, time permitting.
- Further liposuction is usually done 6 months later, although if you are dong well, it can be earlier.
- You may feel so happy after the tummy tuck, breast augmentation and flank liposuction that you lose the rest of the weight - so give yourself a chance to do this.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Best wishes. Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

Your sadness is understandable, but I suspect you were first concerned with your belly which is now flatter. A natural breast lift would address most (if not all) your concerns: "lipo of the neck, the arms, bat wings, and the posterior waist, with a fat transfer to the upper pole of the breasts (with or without a lift)." You spent money wisely, but nothing- not even liposculpture- will rid you of your folds, though your overall shape will probably be pleasing.
If your surgeon was a board certified plastic surgeon, did a ton of lipo sculpture and operated on you at a certified facility...go back for more. If not find one, and please don't be too shy to ask: "how many natural breast lifts and body sculpture proceedures did you do on women like me, who had a tummy tuck and lipo of the flanks (love handles) and bra rolls, did you do last year?" Don't settle for vague answers. Good luck
Best wishes and good luck.
