Is It Safe to Do Hysterectomy at the Same Time As Breast Augmentation?

Cosmetic surgery with a hysterectomy
There is an inherent additional risk of infection with combined procedures where one is a hysterectomy. I would recommend that the plastic surgeon go first and perform the breast augmentation and get everything closed prior to the hysterectomy. Even though the surgery is not in the same area, there is still a risk of transient bacteremia that can cause problems.
Combined Hysterectomy & Breast Implants
There is no medical reason why you should not have BA at time of hysterectomy provided your gynaecologist and Plastic surgeon are happy to work together. There should not be any increased risks with these procedures. I routinely work with our gynaecologist performing combined procedures. Best of Luck.

Is it safe to combine breast augmentation with laparoscopic hysterectomy?
It probably depends on the reason for your hysterectomy. If it is NOT because of cancer, it may be possible to have a breast augmentation at the same time. The first step is talking to your gynecologist. Combining the two surgeries does increase your risk for complications - including infection.
