You are planning to have a TT and BBL at the same time. This is quite common and have many advantages. But your height and weight measurements are not optimal for the proposed surgeries. I would suggest losing weight of at least 50 pounds and then be re-evaluated. Surgery with your height and weight usually does not yield an optimal result and is fraught with increased risks.

    In general, the two surgeries can be performed at the same time, but be aware that recovery is difficult.  The two main things in followup will be the time to remove the drains after tummy tuck and the possibility of seroma.  If you wear the compression garment and use the drains appropriately, the risk for seroma is very small.  You should probably stay in the area a few days to a week to guard against immediate postoperative problems.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts and tummy tucks each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

You are significantly over weight, your BMI is 38.3. You are a very high risk for surgery and complications. Loose the weight first, you will decrease your risks and your results will be much better.
