When more than one plastic surgery procedure is what you want to achieve the look your after, pairing up surgeries can be the most beneficial means to the results you want.
Choosing to have plastic surgery is not a decision to be taken lightly. There are several factors to be taken into consideration, such as, timing, cost, and your aesthetic goals, to name a few. With busy schedules, budgets, and the big picture to look after, oftentimes pairing surgeries is the most effective and efficient means of achieving your personal appearance goals. This approach to plastic is surgery is not only safe, but it’s also the most optimal way to get complete the results you want, now. If more than one plastic surgery procedure is on your wish list, below are three reasons why pairing procedures might be the best approach for you.
- Time: That feeling of not having enough time is all to often why we put off the things want for ourselves. The reality is, depending on the procedure(s) you’d like to have performed, from start to finish, having plastic surgery can be a somewhat time consuming effort. When more than one procedure is performed at a time, patients enjoy the benefits of both procedures while only undergoing a single round of anesthesia. Recovery is also a fundamental part of your transformational journey. It is important that you commit to the time and personal care needed to recover, before agreeing to any procedure. Which is why, if you have already decided to commit the time to the recovery of one procedure that you are planning to have, recovering from another at the same time kills two birds with one stone.
- Cost: When choosing to have more than one procedure at different times, you are exposing yourself to increased costs. Having plastic surgery does not just mean paying for the surgeon’s time, or the tools needed to complete the procedure. The expense of plastic surgery will also include the cost of anesthesia, use of the surgery suite, and hospital staff needed to assist. When having pairing procedures you reduce the cost of having plastic surgery by only having to pay for these types of set fees, once. And for those who need to take time from work to have a surgery performed, they will benefit from only taking one break away from the office, instead of two.
- Optimal Outcome: Most patients seek to have plastic surgery in pursuit of proportionality, restoration, or both. And more often that not, that goal is better achieved with more than one procedure. Some examples of this include:
- Rhinoplasty and Chin Implant: The nose and chin are two features that work together to balance out the facial profile. If rhinoplasty is performed alone, the results often emphasize a weak chin that can appear that much more so when the nose is corrected.
- Breast Lift and Augmentation: A breast lift is the raising of the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. A breast augmentation may be combined with a breast lift if the problem includes a loss of elasticity in the skin and muscles. The result creates proportionality and volume that establishes a balance from the bust line to the waist and hips.
- Liposuction and Tummy Tuck: A tummy tuck is a procedure that creates a smooth abdominal contour by removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscle wall. This procedure restores the normal position and tone of separated muscles caused by aging, pregnancy, significant weight loss and damage from previous abdominal surgeries. Liposuction is often paired with a tummy tuck, to perfect the contours at the hips, thighs and buttocks.
- Face Lift, Neck Lift and Eyelids: A facelift procedure involves a suspending and tightening of the muscles of the face. This part of the procedure creates a strong foundation for the lift, and allows for greater tightening of the skin. The intent being to simply reestablish the natural contours of the neck, jawline and the cheek — restoring a more youthful appearance to the face. Neck lifts or modified facelifts can also be done to specifically target the lower face and neck. With this, eyelid surgery is often performed in order to achieve a complete restoration of a youthful appearance.
- Mommy Makeover: For those who experience a loss of volume in their breasts, a split in the abdominal wall, or skin that is stretched throughout the midsection, this combination of plastic surgery procedures performed during a single operation that was created to help women who are struggling with getting back to their pre-pregnancy shape. In general, this surgical repair to a woman’s body will include two or more of the following procedures: liposuction, a tummy tuck and breast enhancement.
