Plastic surgery procedures can often be combined with one another to achieve a desired result. Here are some of the benefits:
- Less downtime: When undergoing any major plastic surgery procedure there is going to be downtime. If patients decide to combine procedures, the downtime then gets combined into a full recovery period to let your whole-body rest just one time.
- Cost: One of the major considerations when undergoing plastic surgery is the cost. If you are planning to undergo multiple procedures one of the benefits to combining these is only having to plan for one operating and anesthesia fee. This can be a huge benefit for patients looking to add on procedures to one surgery but not looking to add on those additional costs for a second time around.
- Desired result achieved faster: Depending on a patient’s aesthetic goals, one procedure may not achieve the desired result. A combination of procedures may sometimes be better suited to get the desired result and often times, that can be done by undergoing one surgery to target multiple areas.
Some of the most commonly combined plastic surgery procedures are: breast augmentation and tummy tuck, breast reduction/lift with a tummy tuck, facelifts and eye surgery, 360 lipo and tummy tucks, arm lifts with tummy tucks, and finally, thigh lifts with tummy tucks. A consultation with your surgeon is always advised to discuss your options and discover what is best suited for you.
