How soon after TT can I go for round 2?

I am just about 6 weeks post op tummy tuck with muscle repair, Lipo and BBL. I would like to have a breast lift done as soon as possible. How soon should I be planning my round 2? I was thinking about 3 months post op. I have large breasts so I'm sure I will need a drain after my procedure. My suture line is fully closed but no completely healed of course.

Round 2

3 months should be adequate, provided you fell upto another procedure.

Close follow up with your plastic surgeon is recommended. 

How soon after TT can I go for round 2?

How long after a TT, BBL and Lipo  you can undergo a breast lift/reduction depends on the extent of your previous surgeries. I addition your blood count as well as your overall general health are considered. I  would say 3 months would be a good guide but, depending on the above, it may be done a bit sooner or later. You should consult with your previous PS. Good luck!

Surgery Again?

Great Question! I recommend giving your body a full three months to heal before another surgery. Good luck!

Second stage surgery

In my opinion, I usually wait at least 3-6 months to make sure my patients are fully healed from the first and that their repeat blood counts are normal.  Best to discuss with your surgeon.
