TT, BL, and BBL...Which procedure to do first?
Doctor Answers 12
Planning mommy make-over
- Congratulations on your new baby!
- Planning ahead is wise - surgery should be done either 6 months after the baby or 3 months after you stop breast feeding - whichever comes last.
- It is best to operate on the area that bothers you most.
- Generally after pregnancy, that is the tummy and breasts.
- The liposuction and BBL can be done later.
- Some surgeons do all 3 together but it is a lot of surgery, a much harder recovery and risks are higher.
- Be sure you have someone to help you with your children for at least 3 weeks after your tummy tuck and breast lift if at all possible.
Hope you found this answer helpful. Best wishes
Scheduling Multiple Cosmetic Procedures Post Pregnancy
It's suggested to wait at least 6 months after pregnancy to undergo a Mommy Makeover. Additionally, your weight should also be stable for at least 6 months. Also, such #combined operations are often performed with our Gynecology colleagues. Tubal ligation is a common post pregnancy procedure which is done at the time of many of the surgeries included with Mommy Makeovers. Therefore, if you require a gynecologic operation or study (laparoscopy) and are considering a plastic surgery procedure, discuss these issues with your doctor.
#Combining these procedures decreases anesthetics, costs, and recovery time. Most importantly, your procedures should be performed by a #PlasticSurgeon who is board-certified and has a great deal of experience specializing in cosmetic #surgery. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire, and, without the need for a revision surgery. It is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.
All surgical procedures carry some degree of #risk. Always discuss your issues and concerns with the Plastic Surgeon during and following your consultation. Information that you read online may not apply to your personal situation.
All the best,

Multiple procedures, some advices:
First of all is good for you to know that if you want to breastfeed you have to wait until you finish breastfeeding to perform this procedures. If you are not going to breast feed you have to wait at least 3 months after birth to perform them.
On the other hand In my practice I usually perform those procedures you want in the same day. For safety reasons, to be a good candidate for tummy tuck+ breast lift+ Brazilian butt lift 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.

Contouring right after delivery
The idea of having elective body contouring right after delivery is controversial at best.
I would urge you to wait until at least 6 months. I would want your milk to be dry for at least a couple of months to reduce complications.
Remember that multiple procedures will increase risks and may make recovery harder. You have kids to care for and that is something to consider.
Also, I would suggest that you are sure that you are not planning any more children.
Always remember, safety first.
Timing and staging of multiple procedures
Following buttock augmentation, I recommend being off of your backside for 3-4 weeks. This gives the fat grafting a better chance at survival and an improved outcome in my opinion.
Similarly, I encourage people to stay off of their abdomen and breasts following tummy tuck and breast lift (which I perform at a single stage).
As far as which to do first, I would recommend the buttock augmentation first so that you can take advantage of the excess fat present prior to tummy tuck. In addition, following liposuction, you can be left with excess skin. By doing tummy tuck at a later date, the excess skin created during BBL can be removed.
Good luck in getting the result you desire!
