Can You Die from a Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift?

If you are wondering what the chances are of dying from getting a breast lift with a tummy tuck or would it be better/safer to get them done in two separately, here is the answer from a board-certified plastic surgeon:

Based on the current published data mortality rates associated with tummy tuck surgery range from 0.02% to 0.16%.   In other words, mortality rates are extremely low. The most common cause of that is related to pulmonary embolism (blood clots that moved to the patient's lungs). Therefore, in healthy patients, tummy tuck and breast lift can be performed together safely. Your best bet is to choose your plastic surgeon very carefully; everything else including good judgment/advice/planning, anesthesia provider and safe surgery facility will follow. 

Also keep in mind that there is a risk of complication with all kinds of surgeries as there is with every aspect of life. If you are healthy, a normal weight and the surgery is less than 5 hours, risks are low. But to lower risk even more and give yourself a peace of mind, split the two operations.
