For most of our patients here at our Worcester plastic surgery practice, their concerns before finally making the decision to have surgery boils down to two things: safety and natural-looking results. During your initial consultation, both these concerns will be thoroughly discussed.
Furthermore, your cosmetic preferences, goals, and needs will be assessed. Our plastic surgeons will then make recommendations as to which procedure is ideal for you. Depending on your case, our surgeons may recommend combining treatments. So do combination surgeries work? Let’s find out below!
Obtaining the Best Possible Outcome
Most likely, your plastic surgeon will recommend combining two or more plastic surgeries when your desired result is not feasible with just a single procedure.
A good example would be a post-childbirth mom who visits our Worcester plastic surgery clinic who would want more information on a tummy tuck. After talking with one of our plastic surgeons, she has decided to actually pair her tummy tuck with breast augmentation. The tummy tuck is geared towards improving the appearance of her sagging abdomen while breast augmentation will take care of her sagging breasts as a result of childbirth and breastfeeding.
There are a lot of factors to consider when making the decision to combine plastic surgery. In the end, you alone will make the decision. Our plastic surgery team will be there to provide you with the pros and cons of your options and answer your questions.
By and large, we recommend that you combine procedures so you can enjoy the following benefits:
- better and improved results than a single procedure (which is mentioned earlier); another excellent example is combining Botox and dermal fillers. The former could help reduce forehead wrinkles while fillers could help plump your cheeks and lips
- it is time-efficient as pairing procedures together could actually reduce length of recovery time
- it is cost-efficient as well; you will only pay one time for anesthesia and hospital/clinic fees
- the likelihood of complications are also reduced; the results of this study figured out that combining liposuction and tummy tuck could reduce surgical trauma resulting to low complication rates
Ultimately, deciding to combine two or more plastic surgeries is a personal decision. Let us help you make that decision by getting in touch with us for a personal consultation.
