How long should I wait after having a breast reduction to get a tummy tuck and liposuction of the back area?

Q:

I will be having a breast reduction performed.  I also want to get a tummy tuck and liposuction on my back area.  I was going to schedule the appointments four weeks apart.  I will be getting the reduction done first and then the other two procedures second.  Is the time between surgeries acceptable and safe?

A:

Two major surgeries such as Breast Reduction and Tummy Tuck/Liposuction should generally be scheduled at least 2 months apart to allow your body to recover from the first before doing the second.
