Should I get Liposuction, tummy, and breast implants?


Well I know I would like to get lipo. I'm not sure if I have to get tummy though. What do you think? Will breast augumentation fix the way my breasts look? Help!

It is not a simple answer. If you want just to thin out your skin , than lipo is your answer. From you side view though, it looks like you have a significant muscle laxity. (did you (more)

Having breast augmentation and liposuction of the flank and abdominal area will put your body into better proportions. After that, losing weight will help the overall picture.
Good luck (more)

I am 10 days Post-Op from having a total tummy tuck, liposuction to arms, knees, inner and outter thighs, flanks and back. I also had breast agumentation at the same time. It was a lengthy surgery but decided if I was going to suffer the pain -- doing all at once. The worst pain was actually from the liposuction. The first night was horrible but doctor realize that I also suffer from Celiac and I was not absorbing the pain medication. He switched me to liquid Demeral and I was extremely comfortable after that. You will need full time help and If I were to do this again, I would have rented a hospital bed for the first few weeks. This is also helpful for your caregiver. I amd still very sore but I am glad that I did it. My scars already look very thin and the bruising is almost all done. If you work, it recovery it the same as having a C-section delivery (6 weeks)and don't try to do to much even if you are feeling better. I make very small outting such as to the grocery and that wipes me out. Just remember rest is the best medicine for a full recovery!
