I agree with all of Dr. Kraft's points. You will get the most improvement from the Tummy Tuck being performed first. Then your breast reduction size can be more accurately chosen. However, I would recommend that you lose at least 20 lbs. or more first before undergoing a Tummy Tuck.
From your profile photo, you appear to have a significant amount of internal (bad omental) fat. This fat is not removed with a Tummy Tuck since this fat surrounds your stomach, bowel, and other internal organs. You would get a more slimming result if you lost this weight first.
Then, after losing this weight and after undergoing a Tummy Tuck (which also removes more weight), you might be able to get your breast reduction covered by your insurance since your BMI will have decreased, making you more likely to meet your insurance requirements. Wait at least two to three months before undergoing the second procedure.
Good luck with your goals. Realize also that losing the weight and reducing the size of your abdomen and breasts will improve your overall health!
Wishing You the Best!
