Body lift and arms/breast augmentation in one possible?
Doctor Answers 5
The answer to your question depends on what procedure(s) you will need, you overall health status, and the preferences of your chosen surgeon. Combined procedures are quite common. But recovery and potential risk factors need to be addressed.
Multiple procedures can be done safely, but it depends on your health status (past medical history), your anatomy, and the amount of surgery/type of procedures to be done. In some cases, an overnight stay may be recommended.
If you are coming from out of town, I would separate the two procedures. If you are staying local, I would have the surgery in a hospital
Body lift plus breast augmentation and arms
Thank you for asking about your body lift, arm lift and breast augmentation.
- A lot depends on your health, your fitness and the estimated length of surgery.
- It would be a good idea to plan on two procedures - but your surgeon may be able to do it at one time, depending on the assistance s/he has at surgery as well as all other factors.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

Thank you for your question. It is not uncommon to do combined procedures. It depending on your health and other factors. Also depending on how much we need to handle your tissues. I limit myself to 7-8 hrs at one session, if we can not achieve during this time safely we stage them. I recommend you consult with a board certified PS for evaluation and to discuss your goals.
