Should I get mommy makeover procedures done separately?

I’m on the fence about getting plastic surgery, but I do have a close friend who got a breast lift and a tummy tuck. She had the lift done a year or so before she had the tummy tuck. She told me that mommy makeovers are common, and can be done at one time. She wasn’t considering a tummy tuck when she had her lift done, otherwise she told me she would have done them at the same time. Is it recommended to have all mommy makeover procedures done together, or separately?

You will get the best answer in a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. sometimes you can combine two surgeries safely, sometimes it is taking on unnecessary risk.  Mommy make over is not an operation.   It is a term referring to breast and abdominal rejuvenation.   It can mean breast reduction, lift, implant or both.   Tummy can be liposuction, tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck.  Your general health also is important.  Remember it is two surgeries, not one and while both can be done the same day, it is often safer to do one at a time to limit the risk of complications.    Glad you are asking this very important question

As long as you are in good health, it is generally very safe, and preferred, to do everything in 1 surgery.  Then it is much more convenient with downtime and cost.  Talk to your plastic surgeon just to verify, but unless you have major medical issues, you should be a candidate.  Best of luck!
