Breast Augmentation and Liposculpture are usually done at the same time

Usually we do these two procedures together. However, if you're doing them separately leave about three weeks between the two. But you're probably a lot better off doing them together.

How Long After Liposculpture Can You Get Breast Augmentation?

-- Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well.. This is the surgical procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied, it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain. Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery, that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed performing a thigh lift!

Simultaneous breast augmentation and liposculpture

In many cases, we perform these procedures together.  However, should you choose to do one at a time, allow enough time for bruising and swelling to subside from the first procedure. That could mean waiting one month. However, meeting in person with a board-certified plastic surgeon will give you the best information. Best of luck.

Liposculpture/Liposuction and Breast Augmentation Safely At Same Surgery

As healing occurs simultaneously and not sequentially most patients have both Breast Augmentation and Liposculpture or Liposuction at during the same surgery. If you wanted for some reason to separate the surgeries I would wait 6 weeks or more between them.

Liposuction and Breast Augmentation?

Thank you for the question.

Generally these two procedures are done together.  If for some reason you need to space them out you should wait at least one month in between operations.

Best wishes.

How Long After Liposculpture Can You Get Breast Augmentation?

Most patients get both at the same time. It adds 30 minutes to surgery time. If you wish to have them separately, then a few weeks is a reasonable wait between the procedures.

One can get a breast augmentation immediately after liposculpture.

These two operations are often done concurrently.  If they are chosen to be done in a staggered fashion, there is no waiting period between the procedures.

Liposcultpture and breast implant augmentation surgery

These procedures are commonly performed simultaneously, However, if you are having these performed separately, I would advise waiting about 3 months. It is common to see the belly swell after breast implants so do not be surprised by this.
