Breast and Lower Body Lifts
It's difficult to suggest without a in-person one-on-one consultation. The Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures to bring a woman’s body back to the way she looked prior to pregnancy. Most commonly some variation of a #TummyTuck and #BreastSurgery are performed. Additional procedures can include liposuction, umbilical hernia repair. The most common #breastprocedures include #mastopexy or #breastlift, #breastaugmentation, or #breastreduction.
#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 a #MommyMakeover. If you require a gynecologic operation or study (laparoscopy) and are considering a plastic surgery procedure, discuss these issues with your physician and board-certified plastic surgeon. Also, combining these #procedures may decrease anesthetics, costs, and recovery time.
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.
If you want to stage your surgery (breast first and body lift later or vice versa), that would be fine as well. Many patients prioritize their surgery depending on their needs. Doing one part of surgery before another does not affect the outcome of one surgery. Please get the surgery that you want the most first.
Visit with a board-certified plastic surgeon to find out about your candidacy for the surgery.
Can body lift and breast lift be combined?
I would discuss with an experienced body contouring surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Breast lift and lower body lift all at once?
Recovery time is quite long for the body lift, and I personally will stage even this to make sure the patient has an easier time recovering, and can heal better. These procedures required good health and can be quite taxing to recover from, even for a young healthy person. In the end, your health is more important than just getting it done. You may actually save time in the long run.
Seek a board certified plastic surgeon who has done these procedures, and listen to their reasoning for whether they would do it all at once or not. Typically the places that would consider one stage surgery in the USA are affiliated with residency or fellowship programs and utilize many assistants to improve the amount of time it takes to complete the procedure.
Possible in some cases

- hello, and thank you for your question. As a general rule we recommend staging these procedures. There had been certain instances where they have been performed together in patients that have excellent health and understand that it may necessitate prolonged recovery. I would recommend she seek out a qualified surgeon with expertise in these procedures. Best of luck.
Lower body lift with breast lift
- Depending on the surgery involved, a lower body lift and breast lift can be done in 1 procedure.
- Most of the time, the body lift - a big operation - is enough.
- For a person who is normal or below normal in weight, motivated and completely healthy, the combination can be done.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
