Combining with Breast Procedures with a Tummy Tuck
Conveniently located to serve Dallas and Fort Worth
Interested in combining a breast procedure with a tummy tuck in Dallas? At Cosmetic Surgical Center, certain breast procedures can be combined with abdominoplasty to save patients time and money.
Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure performed to improve the contours of the abdomen. Excess skin and fat are removed, and underlying muscles are tightened with internal sutures. When this body-contouring surgery is paired with a breast procedure, patients can achieve multiple cosmetic benefits from only a single surgical session.
At Cosmetic Surgical Center, a tummy tuck can be combined with many breast surgeries, such as a breast augmentation, breast implant removal, breast lift, breast reduction, or gynecomastia procedures.
Abdominoplasty with Breast Procedures
If you need a breast augmentation, breast lift, your breast implants removed/replaced, or a breast reduction, you may choose to have this combined with an abdominoplasty. It is very common for patients who are going to undergo a proportion change to the lower body to want to change their proportions of their breasts at the same time.
When this procedure is combined with abdominoplasty surgery, the patient will only have to undergo anesthesia once and will only require a single recovery period. These procedures can be combined very safely and provide total body improvement in one surgery, which patients are very satisfied with.
Abdominoplasty with Male Breast Reduction
Men with gynecomastia can combine male breast reduction and abdominoplasty to simultaneously restore their masculine chest and abdomen contours. Gynecomastia is a condition where excess male breast tissue is present, creating the appearance of “man boobs.” Male breast reduction involves removal of this tissue to flatten the chest.
During a male breast reduction with abdominoplasty, the necessary incisions are created. To address excess fatty tissue in the chest, liposuction can be performed. To address excess glandular breast tissue and loose sagging skin, scalpel excision can be performed. Once the required abdominoplasty changes have been carried out, the incisions are closed with sutures.
Which Type of Anesthesia Is Needed for Combined Procedures?
Before performing a combination breast procedure and abdominoplasty, general anesthesia will be administered. The duration of the anesthesia’s effectiveness allows enough time to complete two procedures.
What Is Recovery Like After Abdominoplasty with a Breast Procedure?
The main benefit of combining abdominoplasty with your breast surgery is the reduced recovery period. Instead of dedicating six weeks of downtime for each procedure, patients will only go through recovery once. This makes combining procedures a great option for people with tight schedules.
Patients usually take three weeks off work as directed after the chosen combination procedure. Light walking or stretching can be resumed soon after surgery to help avoid developing DVTs. Strenuous activities can be resumed after six weeks.
Is It Safe to Combine Breast Procedures with Abdominoplasty?
Combining abdominoplasty with breast procedures is proven to be safe while providing excellent results. In a study, collected data from abdominoplasty procedures combined with breast procedures shows no increase in major or minor complications. As long as you’re in the hands of a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Rai, the whole process will be quite safe.
Is a Combination Breast Procedure and Abdominoplasty Surgery Covered by Insurance?
Because these are considered cosmetic procedures, the cost of these procedures will not be covered by health insurance.
