Is it Recommended to Get a Total Body Lift and Breast Lift In a Single Surgery?

I'm currently deciding if I want to get a total body lift alone or have it combined with a breast lift. To me, this seems like a lot of surgery and recovery to do at one time. Has anyone ever done this? If so, would you recommend having the procedures together or separately? Thank you!

You can have these procedures performed together, but most doctors will not recommend it. A total body lift by itself can take 5-6 hours of surgery and a breast lift will add an additional 1-2 hours. Putting your body through 6-8 hours of surgery can lead to a very harsh recovery and this is why most doctors avoid it. Other factors that will determine whether or not you can have these procedures combined, will be your previous medical history, anatomy and current health.
