Brazilian Butt Lift and a Tummy Tuck, are Combined Procedures Recommended?
This is a very common question in my practice. It is hard for most patients to take too much time of work and they want to make the most of their time off. They also just want to get everything done at one time.
When I practiced in Miami, I would call this the Miami Makeover. I would typically make patients do the there surgeries at separate times for several reasons.
- I limit my surgeries to about five hours as it decreases the risks of surgery
- I do not let patients sit for two week after their Brazilian Butt lift to protect the fat that has been transferred.
- When I do the tummy tuck I make their abdominal area as tight and flat as possible, the combination of this and the butt augmentation would not give patients a comfortable position for the first couple of week post-op.
I hope this helps, discuss it with your board certified plastic surgeon.
