Can I Combine Breast Augmentation with Another Procedure?

Watch this video by Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Buffalo, NY as he explains the option of receiving a breast augmentation in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures.

One of the questions that we usually get asked is can we do multiple procedures at the same time? When I’m doing breast augmentation procedures, I’ll frequently do them with, say, a mommy makeover, tummy tuck or a breast lift if it needs to be done in conjunction with the breast augmentation.

I try to avoid breast implants with anything that we’re doing with surgery on the face, whether it be the nose or a facelift. The reason for that is that we worry about any bacteria that may be around the facial area or the mouth, and that would perhaps create some potential problems for breast implants. But certainly body procedures can be done at the same time as a breast augmentation.
