Can Breast Reduction, Rhinoplasty and Shoulder Reduction Surgery All Be Done At The Same Time?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m looking into shoulder reduction surgery, and also breast reduction and rhinoplasty. I am from the UK, so if I was to travel to your practice to have these surgeries, would it be possible to have them done at the same time?

A: Thank you for your inquiry and detailing your surgical objectives. Shoulder narrowing, breast reduction and rhinoplasty could all be done in the same surgery. The controlling factor in the recovery would be shoulder narrowing…breast reduction and rhinoplasty do not create much discomfort and are less limiting than shoulder narrowing in the recovery.
