Too short of time for surgery?
Hi everyone, I went to see a very qualified ps last week where I got a consultation for a TT and breast lift/reduction and possible lipo on sides. From what I read the surgery alone takes about 5 hours to complete. His response was about 2 and a half hours. I was really surprised and I guess happy that I would be under anesthesia less. I asked him why it takes so little compared to what other doctors, he said that because he has so much experience in technique, what takes others 5 hours, it takes him 2.5 hours. Has somebody also heard this from another ps? Maybe someone else will be suturing while he goes on to the next procedure? Thoughts? Thanks.

Sounds very quick for multiple procedures.
