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