Can two procedures be done at the same time?

Q:

I am thinking of having a lower body lift with a breast lift. Can these procedures be done at the same time?

A:

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.

A:

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.
