PRLog - Jan. 4, 2013 - Breast reduction and tummy tuck are two of the most asked for procedures among women looking for body contouring surgery. Especially among women after pregnancy and childbirth, leaves them with loose and hanging abdominal muscles and breasts that have lost volume and shape.
Breast reduction surgery (http://indicurecosmeticsurgery.com/surgery/breast-plastic-surgery/breast-reduction.htm) reduces the size of the breast. Breast reduction also reshapes and uplifts the breast to give it a more youthful and perky appearance. The surgery is done under general anaesthesia and takes about 3-4 hours to complete. You would need to stay at the hospital for about 2-3 days in the hospital after the surgery till the drainage pipes are removed. You would experience pain after the surgery which shall be controlled with pain medications. You would be advised to wear a support bra for few months. Recovery would take 2-3 weeks. The scars after the surgery are usually anchor shaped and fade with time.
Tummy tuck (http://www.indicure.com/cosmetic-surgery/tummy-tuck-abdom...) is a major surgery to remove extra fat and skin from the abdomen. It also tightens the loose abdominal muscles to give a nice shape and contour to the midriff. The surgery is done under general anaesthesia and takes about 4-5 hours. You would need to stay at the hospital for 3-4 days after the surgery till the drainage pipes are removed. You would feel pain and discomfort after the tummy tuck which shall be controlled with pain medications. Complete recovery would take 3-4 weeks, though normal routine can be resumed in a week’s time.

It is often a matter of concern both among patients and surgeons whether the procedures- tummy tuck and breast reduction (http://www.indicure.com/cosmetic-surgery/breast-reduction...) should or should not be combined together. Although there are many advantages of combining breast reduction and tummy tuck together like- single hospitalization, single anesthesia and surgery, one time recovery and low cost. If you are travelling abroad for plastic surgery, it definitely makes more economic sense to combine both the procedures.
But since both the surgeries are major surgeries, they should be taken seriously. Plastic surgeons across the world agree that it is not advisable to do a procedure in one sitting if it takes longer than 6 hours or maximum 7 hours. It is not in the best interest of the patient. The surgery can then be broken down in two sittings spaced a few days apart.
Women with heavy breasts and large tummy should ideally get the surgery in two sittings rather than one single. However, if your surgeon advises that both the procedures can be finished in one sitting within 6-7 hours, it is completely safe to combine both the procedures together.
