Is it safe to have replacement implants to get a bigger size and a lift at the same time as tummy tuck?

Some surgeons prefer to do a breast lift separate from implants as the implant can cause stress on the incision lines from the breast lift. Your PS will discuss safety with you. Your health and length of procedure will be taken into consideration when discussing multiple procedures.

Combined breast and abdominal surgery

Yes, it is common to combine breast and abdominal procedures. This can involve breast augmentation or implant exchange to a smaller or larger implant and a breast lift can be added if needed. It is best that you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in these procedures

Is it safe to have replacement implants to get a bigger size and a lift at the same time as tummy tuck?

The combination of breast lift with implants and tummy tuck is commonly done and is often called a mommy make over.  If you are in excellent health with no medical problems and would create and anesthetic risk and you should be fine.  In my practice another plastic surgeon and I do these procedures together to keep them under 4 hours of general anesthesia.

Is it safe to have implants replaced and a lift along with a tummy tuck?

     Breast and tummy tuck surgeries are commonly performed together.  It is safe to have a breast implant exchange, breast lift, and tummy tuck at the same time, commonly called a "mommy makeover".   Make sure you have a clear understanding of your post-op routine from your board-certified plastic surgeon. Good luck.
