Is It Safe to Do Hysterectomy at the Same Time As Breast Augmentation?

Q: I have to have a hysterectomy (divincci …i.e. laproscropic) and was wondering…is it possible to have breast augmentation at the same time… thanks.

A: It probably depends on the reason for your hysterectomy.  If it is NOT because of cancer, it may be possible to have a breast augmentation at the same time.  The first step is talking to your gynecologist.  Combining the two surgeries does increase your risk for complications – including infection.
