Generally Safe: Yes, breast and tummy tuck surgery are frequently performed together.

2-4 hours: Depending upon the work needed to create the result you are looking for, a standard tummy tuck usually takes me 3-4 hours. I usually include some liposuction.

This time includes the time that it takes to put you to sleep and the time it takes to wake you from anesthesia. ...Read more
Age is not factor: Tummy tucks (witch hazel) are done to repair muscle defects or weakness and to remove lax, excess skin. Age not as important as the skin and patient history.

Tucks (witch hazel) are not for weight loss, and are a serious surgical undertaking. ...Read more
