Mommy Makeover

Multiple surgeries

Hello,

I’m wanting to get lipo on back, hips, stomach, BBL, tummy tuck, and and En Bloc total Capsuletomy all at the same time. Question: any recommendations on who can do all?

Is this safe to do all at once? Thanks!

Thanks for the enquiry. Better not to combine BBL and Tummy tuck together . All other procedures can be combined if your other health parameters are good .

This is a great question. Many surgeons would not take on all of these operations simultaneously. First - you need to have an exam by a board certified plastic surgeon. Are you a good candidate for each of the operations you desire if done separately. If the answer is yes, are you in adequate health to undergo these procedures.

Then you need to find a surgeon who is good and fast so that your total anesthetic time is acceptable. Ask multiple surgeons about their ability to perform your combination of procedures , how long it would take them to do it, and what their experience is with them.

Finally, look at their results to make sure they meet your expectations.

Good Luck

debbiejen36,

Yes, you should have a concern about combining so many plastic surgery procedures in one setting. Consider a visit to your primary care or internal medicine provider to determine is you are healthy enough for the proposed extensive surgery's. Make sure they provide your surgeon with a current list of your medication. Then, approach your surgeon with your concern. Consider asking how, where & by whom you will be monitored in the immediate post operative period ( 24hrs). Best,

Having all these procedures done at the same time may be a bit too much. Often I will stage them. You are best to be seen in person to be properly evaluated.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. In most surgeon's hands this combination of procedures would exceed the amount of time thought to be safe for an aesthetic surgery. I would recommend staging the operations with liposuction and BBL performed in a single setting and the tummy tuck and capsulectomy in another. Hope this helps.

As long as you are in good health with a low BMI than I could do these together. I would need to see photos first to determine if you would need any sort of breast lift. You would need to be in the area for at least 5-7 days minimum.

debbie,

I noted you had asked a question regarding your breast implants and their relation to your hypertension as well. I hope you received a satisfactory answer. With this question lipo of multiple areas is often required for BBL in order to obtain the necessary volume of fat to transfer. BBL and tummy tuck are not a good combination for many different reasons including your hypertension. But it is safe and reasonable to perform liposuction on multiple areas and transfer this to the buttock area.

I am uncertain about the capsulectomy since you did not give an indication to have it done.
