Multiple Procedures at the same time
Thanks for your
question. There should not be a problem
to have liposuction done on your back and abdomen during your breast
reduction. I would recommend doing your
back liposuction prior to doing your breast reduction just so you don’t have to
lie on your tummy after your breast surgery has been completed. Best of luck.
Liposuction During Breast Reduction
It is safe to have back and abdominal liposuction during the same procedure as a breast reduction. I suggest consulting with an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Breast reduction with tummy and back liposuction - is it safe?
Thank you for asking about your breast reduction and liposuction.
- Assuming you are healthy and the breast reduction will not take longer than usual, it should be reasonable to do these procedures together.
- The usual guide line is to keep elective surgery at six hours or less.
- These procedures should be possible in that time.
- It will be a bit uncomfortable since lying on your back will be uncomfortable afterwards and you won't be able to lie on your stomach either - but that is not a safety issue.
Always see a Board
Certified Plastic Surgeon.

How safe is it to have back and abdominal area liposuctioned, during a breast reduction?
Thank you for your excellent question. Though a full series of photographs, or an in-person examination, would allow for the most definite advice, in most instances both these areas can be liposuctioned at the same time as a breast reduction without compromising your results. See a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation.
