Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures, and to maximize results, many people combine it with other surgeries for a more comprehensive outcome. Whether you are contemplating a breast lift, liposuction, or any other complementary procedure – there are some key factors you should consider about combining these treatments.
Evaluating Your Goals and Desires
When evaluating whether or not to combine plastic surgery procedures, it is important to assess your individual goals and desires.
- Ask yourself what results you want from surgery and how combining multiple treatments can help you achieve those goals.
- Do your research into each procedure individually so that you understand the outcome they bring on their own as well as when combined with other treatments. This will help ensure that you are making an informed decision.
Procedures Typically Combined with Breast Augmentation
Combining surgeries can be a great way to treat multiple areas and decrease the overall downtime needed for recovery. Some procedures commonly performed in conjunction with breast augmentation include the following:
Pregnancy can sometimes produce unwanted changes in the body. Combining breast augmentation with a tummy tuck or liposuction is often called a “mommy makeover.” This procedure can target areas such as the abdomen, arms, legs, and buttocks to provide a more rejuvenated look after pregnancy or significant weight loss.
If you are looking to add volume and give your breasts a fuller look, combining a breast lift with augmentation can be an excellent way to achieve those results. Having both procedures at once will allow you to gain volume and position your breasts higher on the chest wall. Your breasts will be more balanced and in harmony with the rest of your body.
This procedure aims to improve the visible appearance of the area around the eyes, often targeting puffiness, bags under the eyes, or asymmetry that can occur. Whether you are getting eyelid surgery for cosmetic or more structural reasons, it can be a good procedure to combine with breast augmentation because the areas do not overlap and should constitute a safe recovery.
Facelift surgery can improve visible signs of aging by tightening or smoothing out tissue in the face and neck. The concurrence of these surgeries provides immediate results that can boost confidence by giving a comprehensive youthful appearance.
This cosmetic surgery changes the shape and texture of the various parts of the nose, often adding balance to the nose in proportion to the rest of the face. One of the main benefits is that overall downtime is reduced as recovery occurs just once instead of several instances.
Consulting With Your Surgeon
The best way to determine if combining procedures is right for you is by consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon experienced in performing multiple operations at once. They will be able to assess your anatomy, evaluate your skin tone and elasticity, and advise on what combination of treatments will give the best results for your desired outcome. Depending on the number of surgeries needed and the complexity of each procedure, your surgeon may recommend that each be done separately to minimize complications, such as infection or excessive bleeding.
More Procedures, Shorter Recovery
