Can I Get A Tummy Tuck, Breast Reduction and BBL Surgery At The Same Time>

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi! I’m considering several plastic surgeries this year – came across your practice and was interested. I’m currently considering a tummy tuck, breast reduction and maybe a bbl – but open to discuss!

A: As a male who has never been pregnant nor has undergone a lot of weight loss you do not have the extra/loose skin thagt would justify a tummy tuck. You should initially do liposuction alone and see how much improvement that creates before accepting a long scar. The success of tummy tuck surgery depends on how much loose skin exists standing up straight, not sitting or bent over. For gynecomastia reduction whether it would be liposuction or liposuction combined with open areolar excision depends on if there is a distinct palpable mass…that can not be determined by looking at pictures alone.

Whether one takes the fat from the liposuction and injects that into the buttocks depends on how much fat is harvested and what your buttock augmentation goals are. But as a general rule in men fat injections work poorly and usually the fat harvest is low. But the reason to do it is because it does not hurt and the fat is going to be discarded anyway.
