How Many Plastic Surgery Procedures Can I Have At Once?
If you’re considering plastic surgery, you’ve likely thought about a few different options. It can seem daunting to undergo multiple plastic surgery procedures, especially when it comes to factors like downtime, cost, and recovery. Fortunately, it is possible to undergo more than one procedure at the same time as a way to save some time and money. If you’re interested in a package of procedures, then a consultation with your board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to learn more about your specific options. In the meantime, here’s what to know about combining plastic surgeries and the benefits.
Is it safe to have more than one procedure at the same time?
Every surgery comes with risks, but provided that your board-certified plastic surgeon takes steps to mitigate them, combined plastic surgery procedures can be safe and uneventful. This can greatly depend on factors like your surgical team, hospital or surgical facilities, and your plastic surgeon. Make sure to ask your plastic surgeon about his chosen surgical team and their credentials, as well as hospital privileges and its surgical facilities and emergency protocols. With the right information, your plastic surgeon can help you make an informed decision about your safety.
What are the benefits of combining plastic surgery procedures?
There are a lot of benefits of combining more than one procedure within the same surgical session. These can include:
- Only one consultation and surgical prep process
- Reduced pre-surgery anxiety
- Only one recovery period
- Only one use of anesthesia
- Lower costs and hospital bills
- More dramatic results
What procedures can be combined?
Many people are familiar with the mommy makeover, which is one of the most popular combination procedures. However, many other procedures can actually be combined according to your needs. Here are a few effective combinations.
Facelift and Brow Lift
The facelift is one of the most transformative ways to rejuvenate the face – however, it typically only involves areas of the mid-face. The brow lift is an effective addition because it can lift and smooth brow lines, as well as lift heavy eyelids. Some patients even opt for a facelift and neck lift, or even all three.
Facelift and Fat Transfer
Fat transfer requires liposuction on a fatty area of the body. The collected fat can then be used to add volume to different areas like the face. If you’ve lost volume in the face as a result of aging, fat transfer can fill out areas like the cheeks for a more youthful look.
Chin augmentation and rhinoplasty
Chin augmentation combined with nose surgery is one of the most effective ways to improve your facial profile. If you have a large nose and weak chin, for example, this combination can bring your features into better harmony.
Liposuction and tummy tuck
The tummy tuck can transform the stomach by removing loose skin and tightening stretched muscles. Liposuction comes with the benefit of contouring the surrounding areas like the waist, hips, thighs, or flanks. The result is a more defined, slimmer waist.
