Liposuction

Breast Augmentation with Liposuction

My question is how many areas can be treated with VASER liposuction in the same procedure as a breast augmentation. I am 5’8 160lbs and 4 years ago I lost over 80lbs but didn’t lose it evenly. I have several areas I’d like to liposuction to sculpt a more feminine figure but there isn’t too much to suction in each area. I’d like to do my back, abdomen, theighs and arms.

Often , several areas certainly can be liposuctioned at the same time. With an 80 lb weight loss often the skin is very loose and lipo may not be the right procedure. You may require skin excision.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. A number of different areas could be liposuctioned at the same time as your breast augmentation and I would discuss with your surgeon to ensure the timing of surgery does not exceed a safe maximum. Best wishes.

Multiple areas can be treate with liposuction at same operation as well as doing a breast enlargement safely. You should realize though that is you have excess skin, that will not be helped with liposuction, no matter which one is used.

Probably best to obtain a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon near you. They can examine you and discuss treatment options to address your goals. Having lost 80 pounds, you may need a skin tightening procedure and not just liposuction alone.
