3 Minute Read: 

There are many benefits to combining surgical procedures for both the patient’s well-being and wallet. Some of these include having a shorter recovery period (compared to staggering procedures at different times), having a more impressive initial transformation (since different problem areas are being targeted together), and financial benefits (from performing surgeries together). 

While some surgical procedures are great to combine (such as breast augmentation and breast lift surgery, tummy tuck surgery and liposuction, and different facial procedures like facelift surgery and eyelid surgery), others may not be beneficial. One of these questionable combinations is breast augmentation and the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).

What Are the Usual Benefits of Combining Procedures?

There are several benefits to undergoing multiple procedures at once.

Savings

A patient typically saves money when combining surgeries. For example, you only have to pay for anesthesia and the facility once, which reduces cost. Also, some surgeons give special savings prices when combining treatments.

Reduced Risk

A patient risks reacting poorly to anesthesia every time they go under the medication. Combining surgery reduces risk as you are put under anesthesia less often.

Shorter Recovery

When you combine surgeries, you recover simultaneously. This can be extremely beneficial to both your physical comfort and your everyday necessities—like the ability to take time off work.

Impressive Initial Transformation

While not important for everyone, some people love the idea of shocking everyone with an impressive transformation versus a gradual improvement.

Should I Undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift and Breast Augmentation at the Same Time?

While many women successfully undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift and breast augmentation together (usually as a part of a Mommy Makeover), there are additional factors to consider.

These factors have to do with the recovery period—particularly, how to stay comfortable during your recovery. 

Since the BBL requires you to stay off your butt and backside and breast augmentation prefers you to stay off your stomach, there is no right way to rest and relax when both sides are healing. 

Your recovery process is as important as the procedure itself if you want to get optimal results and stay safe, and not being able to put pressure on either your front or your back can make this difficult. 

This is why this combination is often better staggered.

What Are the Benefits of Separating Your BBL and Breast Augmentation?

If you are disappointed to hear that you may not be able to combine your breast augmentation with your BBL, don’t be! 

Both of these procedures provide you with significant results, and you can undergo the second one as soon as you have finished recovering from the first.

While your final transformation may not be apparent as fast, you can feel assured that you will be more comfortable and you will heal correctly.
