Recovery time between two procedures?

How much time between surgeries?
Best wishes with your upcoming procedures!
Time between surgeries
Congratulations on your upcoming procedures! Yes, eight weeks between the surgeries should be adequate for you to recover from the first and be ready for the second.
Having the two done separately isn't always the popular choice among patients, but is really a wise decision. It allows your body a chance to heal from two lengthy surgeries. Best of luck!

Recovery time between 2 procedures
There are always exceptions, but for the most part, I wait about 3 months between surgical procedures. So 8 weeks is pretty close to that. The main factor is making sure that you are completely healed.
Good luck with your upcoming procedure!

Arm lift followed 8 weeks later by thigh lift is a good plan!
8 weeks should be sufficient if all goes well, which is a reasonable expectation!

Thigh lift following arm lift
Arm lift and thigh lift
An 8 week recovery should be a sufficient amount of time for you to heal from the Brachioplasty and be ready for the next surgery. As far as separating the two procedures, it is probably a good idea. It would be difficult to get around when both arms and legs are bandaged. Although there are patients who opt to have them done together, I think you made the right choice. Give yourself time to heal and get ready for the next operation. Good luck.
Arm lift followed by thigh lift - 8 weeks enough for recovery
- You were very wise to have two operations - the thigh lift has a difficult recovery
- The two operations together might have made surgery too long to be safe.
- Yes, 8 weeks should be enough for your recovery - but be sure your surgeon allows you flexibility to take more time between procedures in case you feel you need it.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
