    Liposuction with a tummy tuck-dangerous?

    I had consultations with 2 different doctors for a tummy tuck and the first doctor I visited told me I need a full tummy tuck with lipo in some spots on my abdomen and back lipo for good contour. The second doctor told me it is dangerous to perform lipo at the same time as a tummy tuck. He said there is much more chance of infection, and it is too hard on the blood vessels. I tried to do some checking on the internet and found some old information from back in 2004 that the Florida Medical Board recommended not performing the two surgeries at the same time. I am also wanting a breast lift at the same time. Does anyone know anything about this or have an opinion on this? I am going to go to a 3rd doc for yet another opinion but wanted to ask people that have had cosmetic surgery what you all thought. Thanks!!!

    I had a breast lift and lipo but not at the same time. I would not do them all at one time.
