If you ask an experienced plastic surgeon about the possibility of combining body contouring procedures, you would get a positive reply. Expert NYC surgeons can successfully combine BBL surgery with breast lift surgery. The advantages of combining these treatments include having to undergo anesthesia only once, lower operating costs, and reduced recovery time. However, most surgeons would recommend staging the procedures as recovery from a combination treatment could pose difficulties. Following breast implant surgery or a breast lift, you would have to sleep on your back, whereas sleeping on the stomach is necessary during recovery after BBL.
When it comes to separating the treatments, which one you have first is up to you, especially if you are planning to have them a few months apart. BBL involves using your own fat to improve buttock contour appearance. The extent of sagging determines the amount of work and incisions required for breast lift surgery.
If you want to have the treatments done close together, your surgeon will most likely recommend having BBL first. The survival of the transplanted fat tissue is a more tenuous question and you cannot risk damage to the fat grafts by lying on your back. While adding fat to enhance the buttocks in BBL, surgeons also sculpt the abdomen, flanks, back and thighs to create beautiful and sensuous shape. The procedure requires patients to lie on the stomach. So it is better to have BBL first and not to put pressure on freshly lifted breasts.
On the other hand, if there is a gap of several months between these treatments, there will be time for proper healing, and it shouldn’t make any difference as to which is done first.
