Mastopexy and abdominoplasty revision

Thank you Dr. Shureih,for answering my previous question. Now I have a delema. I finally got an appointment for the breast revision (the hours he had available before the end of January) but I would like my tummy tuck done over too. I am 70 years old and in good health. Would it be okay to have both done at the same time? And if so, what would you say the recovery time would be? It's important to me because my house is up for sale and if I have the surgeries done separately it would be a real problem if my house sold and I was in a different state. And this: the original Mastopexy was breast lift and a change out of implants that had ruptured over a 30 period of time. Needless to say, it was complicated but I'm so disappointed in the outcome I'm near tears at the thought of getting it fixed and getting it fixed right with the addition of time constraints. Any advice you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

Yes the revision of the abdomen can be done with the revision of the abdominoplasty.
The recovery time is about 3 weeks, mainly because the muscles may have to be repaired again. Hopefuly (more)
