How much surgery is considered safe? There is no wrong or right answer to this question. Obviously for life-saving procedures, sufficient surgery needs to be performed in order to save the patient’s life. After an unfortante trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident, surgery can involve multiple areas and take over 24 hours under general anesthesia. However, for aesthetic procedures, it is recommended by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons that maximum is 8 hours of cosmetic surgery. Dr. Agha has observed in his practice that patient’s who under go surgeries of less than 8 hours recover well, while those under going surgery that takes over 10 hours, when there is a lot more surgery, recover not so well as those with surgerical times under 8 hours. There are many variables, such as medical history, nutritional status, age, fitness, etc., and results varies case by case, Due to Dr. Agha's immense experience in body contouring surgery, he can complete a body lift with buttocks augmentation and inner thigh lift in about 7.5 hours, and an arm lift, upper body lift, and breast enhancement and lift, and in approximately 7 hours.
