I am thinking of having both Breast Lift and Brazilian Butt Lift done by the same doctor. Can anyone recommend to me a good doctor in Dallas who can perform both procedures in one surgery?

A: Breast lift, buttock augmentation

To combine these procedures depends on the patient’s overall health and the length of surgery involved. Usually, a buttock augmentation can take between 2-3 hours, while a breast lift can take anywhere from 1-3 hours, depending on the patient’s particular anatomy. For outpatient procedures, it’s safest to keep the total operating time under 6 hours, as a general guideline. Surgery which lasts longer than this may require an overnight stay at a medical facility or aftercare facility.

More importantly, is the patient’s overall health. Medical clearance by the patient’s internist or family physician is important prior to such a combination procedure.

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who operates in a fully-accredited facility which has an overnight observation unit available.
