Can I do ovary removal and tummy tuck at the same time? I am 66 years old and in good health
Doctor Answers 6
The answer is YES, your Gynecologist can start the surgery first and then have your plastic surgery procedure after. They both have to come to an understanding of what they should do.

Keep in mind that following the advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do based on two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative procedure would not be in your best interest. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
