Questions about Brazilian Butt Lift & Tummy Tuck


If my surgeon will combine the two, how long before I can return to my mostly sedentary desk job? If traveling out-of-state: how long should I stay & what to do about post op complications?




 Yes, some plastic surgeons combine the Tummy Tuck with the Fat grafting to the Buttocks or Brazilian Buttocks Lift. These are not minor procedures & often require assistance with recovery. Post operative travel can also be an important safety issue. Consider addressing your concerns with the surgeon(s) you are speculating performing your surgery.  Best,
