Thank you for your question. That is an excellent question and yes it would be reasonable to have liposuction of your thighs at the same time as your tummy tuck. It is always best to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon and determine the best treatment plan for you. Best of luck to you!
Thank you for asking about your tummy tuck and thigh ilft.
- Excellent question -
- It may not save mney but it makes sense to do the liposuction all at the same time
- Ask your surgeon which in her/his opinion is the best approach.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
It seems reasonable to do all the lipo at the same time, but it is up to you and your surgeon to figure out the best timing.
Photos would be useful. Personally, I would prefer to delay the thigh liposuction to the second procedure unless there is a question of whether your skin could potentially tighten enough with lipo to avoid the necessity for a thigh lift. In terms of cost, since, in either case, it would be an add on procedure, there should be no cost difference. My feeling when performing abdominoplasties is that the more you are able to use your extremities for support in standing and sitting, the better to separate the procedures. We should not be in a race to see how much we can accomplish in one sitting but should strive to achieve the best possible result.
