Wanting a Breast Lift w/ Implants and Tummy Tuck
Wanting a breast lift with implants and tummy tuck in one operation
One of the most important factors in performing several procedures at the same time is the length of surgery. Although there is no universally agreed upon time limit most surgeons would probably agree that the limit falls between 4-6 hours. Many surgeons use 5 hours as a limit. Complication rates begin to rise as the length of surgery exceeds this time frame. In order to safely and effectively perform several procedures within this timeframe it is very important that the surgeon and his or her team are highly trained and routinely perform these combinations in an efficient manner.
Many patients comment that the results of these combinations are truly life-changing. Fortunately today, these life-changing combination procedures can be safely performed as long as it is done by highly trained and efficient surgical teams on properly selected patient's with safety as the primary consideration.
Thanks for your question and photos.
Based on your photos and description, you can achieve a great contour from tummy tuck with liposuction of waists/flanks and breast augmentation with lift. All three procedures can be done well and safely.

Thank you for your question and photos. These procedures can certainly be done together, however Plastic Surgeons have different preferences such as performing a full Tummy Tuck with breast lift, then performing a second surgery to insert implants 6 months later when the breasts have healed and good blood flow is restored.
Depending on the size of implant, the type of lift, your overall health and expected length of time for surgery, your Plastic Surgeon will let you know if this is an option for you.
I recommend that you seek out board certified Plastic Surgeons in your area who specialise in this combination of procedures.
