Should I have a tummy tuck, liposuction and fat transfer at the same time? Would it be safe? (Photo)

BBL Tummy Tuck Combo
In Florida where I practice. The medical licensing board has a restriction for maximum of 1000cc of Lipo fat removed if combined with an excision surgery such as tummy tuck.
Past Patients have had more satisfaction with performing liposuction full body and BBL to remove the upper abdominal fat as a stand alone first surgery. Then have a tummy tuck with a thinner result because the upper abdominal skin flap is thinner when stretched down the abdomen to the pubic bone.
Wish you well on your descision and recovery!

Multiple procedures, some advices:
For safety reasons, to be a good candidate for the procedures you want at the same time, your labs and cardiovascular preoperative evaluation must be optimal.
Therefore, you must be a healthy person, within an appropriate BMI and no history of diseases that increase the surgical / anesthetic risk degree.
Finally, I recommend you a skilled certified plastic surgeon in body contouring surgery and experienced in cases like yours where the planned operating time is less than five hours.
