How Long Do You Have To Wait To Go Back To Work After Getting A Tummy Tuck And Breast Augmentation
How long do you have to wait to go back to work after getting a tummy tuck and breast augmentation?
I have had tummy tuck, fat transfer, lipo, and breast augmentation June 2nd 2017. I am experiencing extreme leg pain - soreness, abdominal discomfort and pain shooting down the leg. I was only prescribed supradol which I no longer have for the pain.
Ask your surgeon...: Has the postoperative pain been subsiding as usually expected slowly and surely day by day? If not, but worsening, and for running out pain medication, you should report these in detail to your surgeon for possible evaluation and drug refill, not doing so online.

It depends: I perform a significant number of tummy tucks (witch hazel) each year for my young mothers and feel that this is a great procedure when done by a qualified plastic surgeon with experience in this area.

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).

Want to get tummy tuck and gynestomia breast reduction on the same surgery or at the same time. Is this possible and can u recommend someone in ny/nj?
Totally Possible: Yes, this combined procedure is generally well tolerated. Since this multiple procedure surgery can take 5-6 hours in the OR, I use IV anesthesia (instead of general anesthesia) to reduce the risk of pulmonary embolism. Be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. The best way to find one near you is to search the ASPS site at find.plasticsurgery.org. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

For most patients recovery is about a week but heavy exertion should be avoided for at least a couple of weeks. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
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. ...Read moreSee 8 more doctor answers

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. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
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.
