I am considering a breast lift and liposuction to the arms, flanks, and abdomen. I received a consult and the Dr said it should be no more than 6 hrs under general anestesia. Does this sound like two many procedures at once?
The risk of surgery is increased by prolonged surgical times. When you do multiple procedures you have a higher risk than doing a single procedure.
One option would be to separate the mastopexy and the liposuction. You could do one surgery on one day and the other theoretically the next day are several days later. This may be a way to decrease the risk of multiple procedures but to recover from multiple procedures in one recovery.
