Submit your question below about any cosmetic procedure to be considered for posting with an answer from one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.
Note: ASAPS cannot give advice about specific medical problems nor should answers provided by responding surgeons be substituted for a complete medical history, work-up and an in-personal medical/surgical consultation. Sorry we can't answer all questions. We try to select questions that have the widest general interest.
Can two procedures be done at the same time?
Sure they can be combined together on condition that this combination will not increase your risk for developing complications. This can be determined by a knowledgeable and experienced plastic surgeon. Please seek the advise of an ASAPS member.

Yes, they are commonly performed together. Usually as a team approach. Start with a consultation by a board certified plastic surgeon familiar with performing these procedures and performing them at the same surgical procedure. I like to keep procedures under 6 hours to minimize complications. With a team approach that is easy to obtain.
