Dear Heather, We often couple procedures or perform many smaller procedures at one time so that there is only one recovery period and down-time is decreased. There are safe limits for doing this depending upon the procedures. The two that you mention are very readily performed together.

Q&A: Is it possible to have chin augmentation, breast augmentation and liposuction done at the same time?

Question:

I need some info or case reports of a chin implant mentoplasty? also would like breast augmentation and liposuction at the same time, or is this too much for a single anesthesia?

Dear Kristie, A chin implant procedure is relatively easy on you as is liposuction. All three procedures could readily be performed at the same procedure time. If you do not need a very large advancement of your chin, an implant of either silicon or porex is an excellent means of improving the contour of that area. There are some before and after picture on my web site at drgregorycaputy.com.

Dear Niclole, There is a deep layer of your own scalp that can be used for permanent lip augmentation. I only obtain this when performing a brow lift procedure. Fat transfer and all other permanent fillers offer very little permanent enlargement and I would discourage their use.
