Breast Reduction And Tummy Tuck Before And After Photos
View before and after photos of breast reduction and tummy tuck at the same time performed by leading plastic surgeons.
Combining a reduction and a tummy tuck is safe for someone who is young and healthy. Doing the two procedures at the same time will likely end up being more expensive than doing them separately for a number of reasons.
Save your out-of-pocket money and have your tummy tuck done at a different setting.
If you are a low risk for surgery and the surgery is not extensive, then tummy tuck and breast reduction can be done at the same time. If you are a high risk for the surgery or the surgery is more involved, then it may be safer to separate the surgeries by 3-6 months. (J. Jason Wendel, MD, FACS, Nashville Plastic Surgeon)
A tummy tuck can often be done at the same time as a breast reduction. Remember hospitals will charge a facility fee for the tummy tuck if the breast reduction is covered by insurance. (Steven Wallach, MD, New York Plastic Surgeon)
If your reduction is covered by insurance, combining procedures will lead to the TT anesthesia and facility being billed at a higher rate than as a standalone procedure in an accredited facility.
Next, the risk of complications is higher in any procedure lasting over 5.5 hours and rushing to beat the clock isn’t necessarily the highest quality surgery. (Robert L. Kraft, MD, FACS, New York Plastic Surgeon)
Breast Reduction with Tummy Tuck
The primary advantage of performing a breast reduction with a tummy tuck is a single recovery period. It is possible to receive discounted anesthesia and facility fee rates by combining procedures. I would only recommend this if you are set on having a tummy tuck at some point in the near future. (Paul S. Gill, MD, Houston Plastic Surgeon)
