Why You Should Combine Plastic Surgery Procedures

When I see patients in my office who have more than one concern, I often recommend combining surgeries. Combining plastic surgery procedures is a cost-effective way of achieving a more comprehensive makeover, and studies I have done over recent years suggest that the safety of combined procedures is on par with the safety of individual cosmetic surgery procedures.

Combined procedures for body and breast contouring are increasingly commonplace these days. For instance, some of my Los Angeles tummy tuck patients will benefit from combining liposuction of the midbody, hips or thighs. The removal of excess skin as well as fat can result in beautiful, smooth body contours.

Also, many tummy tuck patients choose to combine breast procedures with their surgery. These combined surgeries are often called Mommy Makeover procedures, addressing the specific areas that are of concern to women who have had children.

Combining surgical procedures has the added benefit of reducing total recovery time, when compared to having the procedures separately.
