Q: Combining Surgeries

June 13, 2011
by Dr. Leo Keegan

Q: I know that people often go back to work in a couple of weeks from an arm lift or breast reduction but I am wondering if the surgical combination of the two might mean more downtime.

A: Although combining procedures in one operative setting certainly will lead to a longer surgical time and more areas of post-operative pain, in general you get the advantage of a single recovery period. If the combinations are chosen appropriately, your time away from work should be no different.
