Body Procedures » Combination Body and Breast Contouring Procedures

There are a couple of reasons to combine  breast procedures and body contouring procedures.  First of all, combining procedure saves a little bit of money and an anesthetic but the most important reason is the second reason. Combining procedures consolidates recovery time. It’s much more time efficient to have a single recovery than two or three.

That being said, combining  procedures requires careful planning and judgment. In general, I like to keep the “skin to skin” time of surgery under 6 hours. It’s just not smart to subject a patient (not to mention the surgeon, the nurses and anesthesiologist) to a much longer operation. Super long operations can result in hypothermia, excessive blood loss, electrolyte and fluid imbalance not to mention surgeon fatigue.

I can usually do a breast and body procedure and maybe a one area liposuction in one setting – if I sew really, really fast. Or maybe a breast reduction and a brachioplasty – if I sew really, really fast.

So if a patient shows up with a laundry list of desired procedures, I will help them determine where to start and what procedures can be done safely during the same setting. Don’t ask me to “push the envelope.” If it is out of my comfort zone, it’s probably out of your safety zone.
