Tummy Tuck and Breast Uplift – The expectations
Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures
Believe it or not, it is fairly common to combine various surgical procedures into one for those who are considering numerous cosmetic alterations. For example, a breast uplift with augmentation is a fairly common procedure, one that is carried out quite frequently here at Sthetix Clinic in Liverpool.
Another great combination is the breast uplift alongside a tummy tuck, and you can find examples of both of these combined surgical procedures by following the links to our gallery.
The Procedure – Tummy Tuck And Breast Uplift
This procedure is ideal for women who have had a body change from pregnancy or those with a post-weight loss body that they would like to restore to its once youthful appearance. This procedure aims to change the shape of the breast to a more natural position and remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen.
Certain factors can affect your suitability, but we personally assess each of our patients here at Sthetix. As stand alone procedures, a breast uplift can take around 1-3 hours depending on the method used, and a tummy tuck takes about 2 hours. Therefore the combination procedure will last for a sum of both of these. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved such as swelling, scarring, bruising, infection and others of a higher severity. We will only consider this combination if we determine it to be a safe option for you.
The initial recovery period for this procedure is around 2-3 weeks but may take up to 6 weeks, after which our surgeons would advise you can comfortably return to work.
We will provide a recovery plan; you should wait at least two weeks before exercising the upper body, but we advise that you do not begin exercise until you feel ready as each person is different – it is imperative that we ensure that your body recovers properly. Throughout your recovery there will be things that you need to do to ensure you heal well, including wearing compression garments and taking necessary medications.
Your surgeon will discuss all of this with you and follow up appointments should be made to check your progress.
