Can a tummy tuck and breast reduction be done at same time?

Thank you for your question.  In my practice, I perform this combination surgery on young healthy individuals with a body mass index of 30 or below.  Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon.  Good luck!

Can a tummy tuck and breast reduction be done at same time?

Generally speaking, combination surgical procedures are done routinely. However, you are wise in being concerned about the safety of combination surgery; risks/possible complications do increase with increased length of surgery… In my practice, the combination of breast  reduction and tummy tuck surgery is done routinely for young/healthy patients.

It is best to evaluate each patient's suitability for combination surgery on an individualized basis. During this consultation process, after a complete history and physical, the SAFETY of combining these surgical procedures becomes of paramount importance. Plastic surgeon, anesthesia provider, duration of surgery, surgery facility all important considerations. Your best bet: choose your plastic surgeon very carefully; everything else including good judgment/advice/planning, anesthesia provider and safe surgery facility will follow. Best wishes.
