How safe is a mommy makeover? I need a slight breast lift, tummy tuck and a little liposuction. I’ve heard you can have them all at once, but i’ve also heard about people dying because they had too much done in one surgery. How much do I increase my chanc

However, each patient's “situation” is evaluated individually, with emphasis placed on safety of having the combination procedures. Patient's medical condition and duration of surgery are considered. The safety record of the anesthesiologist and that of the fully accredited surgery facility should be asked about also.

Have had lap band surgery and tummy tuck with breast lift. Starting to gain some weight back can I take an appetite depressant? I am a 49 year old female, married 30 years have 4 children. I have had a lap band surgery 2 1/2 years ago and 16 months ago a

Band: You can take an appetite suppressant but that really isn't the answer. You need to figure out why you are gaining weight. Eating too much food? Eating bad foods? Not exercising? Band too loose? Make sure your band is well adjusted. Maybe you need to see your surgeon. Address all of these issues first before thinking about taking diet pills.

What is the recovery time fafter a breast lift and an abdominoplasty?

Varies.: Recovery will vary from one patient to another. However, most patients and surgeons underestimate the recovery time necessary with abdominoplasty surgery. Most patients achieve 70 to 80% of their strength one month after surgery; it takes several months to fully “recover". Breast lifting, on the other hand is associated with a much quicker recovery period.

I'm wondering how much time should I wait between a tummy tuck and breast surgery?

I'm wondering how much time should I wait between a tummy tuck and breast surgery?

Depends: For healthy low-risk people, the tummy tuck and the breast procedure can reasonably be combined at the same anesthetic (i.e. Breast biopsy, breast lift or breast implant). Otherwise, you can have it as soon as you are feeling well after the tummy tuck - probably about 4-6 weeks later.

Can u breast feed and have more children having gotten a tummy tuck and breast aug?

Can u breast feed and have more children having gotten a tummy tuck and breast aug?

Yes: Most breast implants are now placed under the chest muscles and do not disrupt the breast tissue so breastfeeding is usually not a problem. If not placed under the muscle, then it depends where the incisions were on the breast. Pregnancy is ok after a tummy tuck but it will expand again and likely not return to the way it looked after the tummy tuck.

What is the recovery time for breast reduction and tummy tuck?

Can I have breast implants at the same time as my tummy tuck? Is it possible and/or advisable to have breast implants at the same time as my tummy tuck? .

Yes, but: A given plastic surgeon may legitimately feel the answer is 'no' especially once individual circumstances are considered.

Has anybody had a breast reduction and tummy tuck at the same time?

Has anybody had a breast reduction and tummy tuck at the same time?

Yes: This is a very popular "mommy make-over" combo because women who have children often have abdominal bulges afterwards and the breasts may have enlarged/drooped. The procedures are safe to do at the same time if the patient is in good health otherwise and the doctor has experience with the procedure. Combining the two increases risks slightly so some people choose to do them separately.
