The length of time to complete an operation varies greatly from surgeon to surgeon.
As a general statement surgeons who are very slow and to be meticulous but not necessarily better than those to move a little faster.
It's also generally true that the surgeons Who operate the very fastest tend to not pay attention to details and tends to cut corners.
The time of surgery is scheduled often is calculated from the time the patient address the operating room until the patient reaches the recovery room.
Of this 30 or more minutes can be involved in putting the patient to sleep, getting surgery ready and waking up the patient.
The time to complete an Abdominoplasty will very greatly on the size of the patient.
A massive weight loss patient can take twice as long as a petite 95 pound woman
The amount of time will also depend on if the surgeon has an assistant.
The experience of the surgeon also makes a substantial difference.
For example my practice is devoted exclusively pump about suction and fat transfer.
I do these procedures several times a week.
The amount of time for me to do one of these procedures is substantially shorter then it was before I began sub specializing in only these procedures
A full abdominoplasty generally takes between 2 to 4 hours.
A BBL typically takes the same amount of time.
Four hours seems like a short amount of time to do a proper for abdominal plasty in conjunction with a BBL.
There are too many variables to give an accurate answer to your question.
And expedient surgeon with an assistant can accomplish that you stated procedures within four hours on certain candidates and produce good results.
Talk to your surgeon if you have questions or concerns before your procedure.
