    Is it better to have two cosmetic surgeries together or seperately?

    I currently have a cosmetic surgeon that I use. He has removed my xanthelomas, due to the severity it ended up being an upper a lower eye-lift on both eyes. My surgeon is to retire soon and he is no longer doing tummy tucks.I do have large breasts unfortunately one is e cup and the other is f cup. It makes it impossible to get a properly fitted bra and I get chest discomfort because this. I was intending of having a reduction and lift and to have my tummy done. As my surgeon will only do my breasts, is it better to have one surgeon for both or have two different surgeons work on me?

    Presumably your surgeon is referring his or her tummy-tuck patients elsewhere, and presumably your retiring surgeon will either close the practice or will pass it on to a younger surgeon.

    I'd be finding out your current surgeon's plans.

    Say, for instance, you develop some complication following the breast lift after your surgeon has retired. Who will look after you?

    Talk about these concerns with your current surgeon. Generally your surgeon will want to ensure your breast surgery and your abdominoplasty and your long-term follow-up will all proceed seamlessly despite his or her retirement.

    the after-care and the degree of cooperation between your surgeon and any other surgeon are the issues here, rather than the number of surgeons, IMHO
