Breast and abdominoplasty surgery are sometimes performed together during a single operation, which may reduce the overall recovery period and cost.
We don’t encourage patients to undergo multiple surgeries at the same time and the decision (as with any procedure) should be decided with the doctor performing your surgery.

Pre Surgery Consultation with your surgeon
At this consultation your surgeon will listen to what you want to achieve and develop with you a personalised operation plan including:
Your procedures will be performed under general anaesthetic in an accredited, licensed hospital. The surgery itself takes between 2 – 6 hours depending on the type of procedures you require. You will spend typically a couple of hours under close supervision in the recovery area before being discharged. In some cases you may require an overnight stay at the hospital. You will need a responsible adult to take you home and stay with you for the first night.
You will have your surgeon’s mobile phone number in case you need them and the support staff will regularly be in touch to ensure everything is running smoothly. You will arrange your first post operative check up with your surgeon for review.
Why choose MINKST for your surgery?
Like any surgical procedure, breast & abdominoplasty surgery carries certain risks that individuals should be aware of before making a decision.
Risks associated with both surgeries include infection, bleeding, adverse reaction to anaesthesia, scarring, wound healing complications, changes in skin sensation, fluid accumulation, seroma formation, asymmetry, contour irregularities, blood clots, anaesthesia-related complications, and the need for revision surgeries.
Specific to Breast surgeries: Changes in nipple or breast sensation, asymmetry, dissatisfaction with the aesthetic outcome, and the need for future revision surgeries. Breastfeeding is usually possible after a breast lift, but some individuals might experience difficulties in producing sufficient milk. If you are having a lift with implants – complications specific to breast implants such as rupture, rippling, or capsular contracture (scar tissue formation around the implant) are also possible. Recent news has highlighted a potential association between textured breast implants and Anaplastic Large-Cell Lymphoma (ALCL).
It is important to consult with an appropriately qualified surgeon, thoroughly discuss all the potential risks, and carefully weigh the benefits against the risks to make an informed decision.
