Trying to decide if I should do Lipo with Breast Revision

I am going in on the 20th for a breast revision (going small and changing to silicone), BL along with a repair of umbilical hernia. My PS suggested lipo for my tummy and flanks since he did not think I needed a TT. (I really did not want a TT and he only does TT with hernia repairs)

I'm just going back and forth on the Lipo. #1, the recovery of lipo just seems painful; the results may not be exactly what I'm hoping for since I'm 53 years old; I'm afraid they skin will just look saggy and I will need a TT after it anyway.

Can my skin be resilient? Between the hernia repair and lipo I'm afraid I will be looking at weeks if not months of recovery.

Does anyone have any experience? Thank you for any guidance.

I can tell you that most likely the skin will be saggy. I'm 60 and had Lipo at 50ish in the same places. It is painful and my skin didn't bounce back.

Thank you. I am just having a gut feeling not to go through with it! I will have more incentive with smaller breasts to loose some weight and get rid of it the natural way.
