Combined breast surgery and tummy tuck | Rózsakert Medical Center

Combined breast surgery and tummy tuck

At our clinic, it is possible to have breast surgery and a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) performed at once. When appropriate, the chosen type of breast surgery and stomach reconstruction can be completed under a single general anesthetic.

At our clinic, patients can choose to have a tummy tuck and either breast augmentation with implants or breast lift surgery (also with implant breast augmentation if needed).

Preoperative assessment

A consultation takes place with the surgeon prior to surgery to discuss the procedure, and to select the suitable type and size of implant if necessary. As surgery is performed under general anesthetic, laboratory tests, an ECG, a chest X-ray and an abdominal ultrasound must all be carried out. A breast ultrasound is also performed, as well as mammograms for women over 40 years of age.

Surgical procedure

  • Surgery usually takes 2.5 to 4 hours and takes place under general anesthetic
  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation with implants

Post surgery

It is necessary to spend the night after surgery in the institution where the operation was performed.

For combined surgery, it is necessary to spend the night prior to the operation in the clinic so you can receive an injection to prevent thrombosis (blood clots). These injections must be continued for three weeks after surgery, although the patient usually administers the injection themselves at home at an agreed time daily.

Dressings can be removed approximately one week after the tummy tuck operation, and showering is permitted once the bandages have been removed. To ensure that the body recovers properly, wearing a sports bra and supporting stomach bandage is recommended for six weeks. After the operation, physical loads can be gradually increased according to the instructions provided by the doctor.
