Hi, you can have both procedures done at the same time, but I recommend that the tummy tuck portion be done by a board certifed plastic surgeon, working with your gynecologist.

Tummy tuck can usually be done together with ovary removal.

You just need to have a gynecologist and a plastic surgeon who are comfortable working together.
