One procedure

Hello,

I’m interested in looking into getting a breast and tummy tuck procedure, will this be done all in one session ?

And I’m also looking to see about getting into payment plans but with a down payment. Does the first consultation cost , because I have not found a doctor just yet.

Thank you

Procedure: Breast Augmentation
Location: canyon lake, CA

It is quite possible to have breast surgery and a tummy tuck at the save time. It really depends upon your overall health and the extent of the surgery. Good luck

Plastic surgeons will often combine breast and abdominal surgery, which has been called a Mommy Makeover. It is a longer procedure with discomfort in both area, so you need to have a frank discussion with a board-certified plastic surgeon regarding the risks and the benefits of doing both procedures together. Use the Find-A-Surgeon link on this website to find an ASPS member surgeon near you.

In my practice I will perform numerous procedures at the same time. Because I perform only cosmetic procedures and perform close to 700 procedures per year I have become more proficient. So, the time it takes to perform a given procedure is less, allowing numerous procedures to be performed safely. In addition, I perform all of my procedures in a surgical center or hospital, making the process even safer.

That being said, you need to find a plastic surgeon in your area that performs a lot of cosmetic procedures. It assures that the procedures get done more safely.

With regard to financing, most board certified surgeons participate with cosmetic surgical financing companies. The specifics can be answered by the surgeon that you consult with.

Multiple procedures at the same operative time depends on the patient medical history and physical examination and comorbidities., and support structure. It is all dependent on on patient safety. and patient expectations.

Some abdominoplasties need liposuction of the flanks, Bra rolls to achieve what the patient wants. some breast augmentations require liposuction of the lateral chest.

So considering patient safety, not convenience, Both can be done.

one can tell you he/she has done millions of such procedures, is it applicable to your patient safety??

Showing you the best results , pictures wise, any showed you you their worst results??

Once a surgeon takes a patient as his/her patient should be treated as as a family member

Thank you for sharing your question. Yes both procedures can be done in a single operation. As for financing, CareCredit is the largest provider and offers good terms that most practices accept. I would use this website's find a surgeon tool to schedule some consultations.
