Tummy Tuck and Lipo....
Tummy Tuck With Liposuction In Multiple Areas
It is possible to do all in one surgery. Many procedures can be combined during one surgery. Also, combining these #procedures may decrease anesthetics, costs, and recovery time. However, I look at the risk factors such as surgery time greater than 6 hours, or #anesthesia time, increased risks of DVT, prolonged #healing, #positioning after surgery to name a few, which are a lot to consider. These factors are relative to performing any variety of combinations.
If deemed a candidate, you may benefit from a #drainless tummy tuck with #liposuction. Silicone #drainage tubes are used by trained Plastic Surgeons for many different operations. The purpose is to drain extra fluid that may otherwise accumulate under the skin, fat or muscle following an operation. Patients generally find this annoying and uncomfortable and they can impede mobility and therefore slow aspects of #healing. Over the years, surgeons have improved procedures and found ways to eliminate the need for these #drains in a variety of operations; including #tummy #tuck or #abdominoplasty.
Vaser liposuction, also known as Vaser #lipo, LipoSelection or Liposuction, is an advanced body #contouring procedure that selectively removes unwanted body fat. An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, #Vaser lipo uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently #reshape your body and, yes, it can be done on the #upper #arms. There are three types of #Vaser Lipo. Each benefit patients differently depending on their needs
Some #areas of the body Vaser is applied to include the face, chin, neck, arms, back, abdomen, "love handles", buttocks, thighs, hips, saddlebags, knees, and, the male chest during Gynecomastia surgery. An ideal #candidate for Vaser Liposuction is a person in good health who seeks a minimally invasive way to remove stubborn fat with less downtime than traditional #liposuction. Vaser is ideal for those seeking improved definition of muscles and contouring. Those who seek increased sculpting of are ideal vaser lipo candidates.
The most important decision to be made before performing any surgical procedure is determining whether you are an ideal #candidate. Begin with an in-person, one-on-one consultation to determine if you are an ideal #candidate and which technique is best for you. Most importantly, your procedures should be performed by a #Plastic Surgeon 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.
Yes, it is possible to get a tummy tuck and liposuction of the flanks, back, hips and thighs all at the same time.
To be sure, see two or more experienced, board-certified Plastic Surgeons in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.

The no of procedures that can be combined depends on the comfort of your surgeon. I usually combined the procedures that you have mentioned for someone who has your weight and structure, if you are in otherwise good health. If, however, you planning on a BBL, it may be best to post pone the liposuction of Flanks, Back and Thighs for a second session when you have the BBL. Tummy Tuck and BBL should not be combined at the same time in most situations.
All The Best !
Tummy, lipo, BBL
Vaser ultrasound liposuction will address the difficult hip area. Implants and a breast lift. Tummy tuck with some minor areas. BBL can be added, but I do not perform it at same time as tummy tuck.
An exam and consultation with a plastic surgeon who performs these is recommended to discuss your options and expectations.
