Can other surgeries be performed with a tummy tuck?

Stuart A. Linder, MD
Plastic Surgery
Multiple procedures may be performed with a tummy tuck. In fact, liposuction of the hips is often performed at the same time. Other procedures may include breast augmentation and breast lifts, as well as lipocontouring of the thighs. Most importantly, is the patient's overall health status. In my practice, general anesthesia time is limited to under 5 hours.
