Breast augmentation and tummy tuck surgery are two of the most commonly combined procedures. They often go together in a mommy makeover, a customized procedure that combines two or more surgeries aimed at women who are unhappy with their post-baby figures. But is performing two surgeries in conjunction really safe?
Combining Procedures Does Not Increase Risk
Over the past two decades, combining plastic surgery procedures into a single operation has become commonplace. In fact, recent studies indicate performing two surgeries in conjunction poses no greater risk to the patient than having the surgeries performed separately. However, it’s always smart to seek out a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience performing mommy makeovers.
Patients and surgeons alike have embraced the convenience of combining multiple procedures. Combining procedures means that patients will only have to endure one surgical period and one recovery period, making for less trauma to the body and less time away from work.* For busy mothers, combining procedures can be a convenient way to meet their appearance goals without taking too much time away from other responsibilities.
Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck as Perfect Complements
Breast augmentation and abdominoplasty are so often combined for more than just the convenience of less downtime. The procedures complement each other so well that many patients would prefer to see their complete results all at once. Women often lose breast volume due to age, nursing or weight fluctuations, while pregnancy stretches the abdominal skin and muscles to create a distended appearance. Combining breast augmentation and a tummy tuck can address both concerns at once.*
