Please help! Mommy makeover question!

Hello! I am having five procedures done. Tummy tuck, BBL, Breast lift w/ implants, BodyTite & lipo inner thighs, and Labiaplasty. My surgeon wants to do the TT, BBL & labiaplasty first. Then 6 weeks later come back and do the breasts & inner thighs. The more I research the more I really don’t want to the BBL and TT at the same time. Would it be possible to do the surgeries like this instead - BBL, labiaplasty, inner thighs then come back 6 weeks later for the tummy tuck and breasts.

Thanks!

I don't see why your sequence wouldn't work. Finding adequate fat for the BBL can be the tricky part. Your surgeon should be able to explain their rationale and why yours might/might no be possible. Best of Luck!

The best advice is to address your concerns with your surgeon and find out why he/she has made the recommendations that they did.

Discuss your concerns with your surgeon. He/She may have reasons that you are not aware of as to why they want to proceed with surgery as indicated. Good luck,

When planning a lot of procedures to be done at the same time there is a lot of things to consider. The order your surgeon is suggesting makes sense for two reasons. It works in terms of the areas of the body having procedures, and it keeps the time for surgery at a reasonable amount for each procedure. The order you're asking for makes the time needed to do the second operation a lot longer than the first. Of course, that all depends upon the amount of work involved with your tummy and breasts. You should have a talk with your surgeon and make a plan together that you're comfortable with. Remember that you can also break things up further and have three procedures instead of two if you're more comfortable taking things in a different order.

Of course this question should be discussed with your surgeon. The surgical time is one consideration. One thing I would note, you need as much donor fat as possible for the BBL and one of the donor fat sites may be the lower abdomen that will be removed in the tummy tuck.

That is a significant amount of surgery. I think 6 weeks is still a very short time frame to recover from that combination. You have valid concerns so I would return to your surgeon with those and if necessary get another opinion.
