Two, or even 3 procedures done during 1 operating session – that’s basic math – combining multiple procedures has undeniable benefits. And of course, anyone, who decides to go for a plastic surgery would like to see visible results soon. Combined procedures can guarantee you that, and also save you time and money at the same time. Want to know more? We will tell you everything you want to know about combined plastic surgeries.
Which surgical procedures can be combined?
The answer to this question is very individual, the safety of the patient being the main concern. Therefore it is crucial to choose an experienced surgeon who has to consider several things: the scope of the procedure, patient’s age, state of health, overall duration of anaesthesia. E.g. time spent in general anaesthesia should not exceed 5 hours. The length of the convalescence period also depends on the quality of the skin and blood circulation. And what are the most sought after combinations? Breast uplift + breast augmentation, facelift + necklift (can be also combined with blepharoplasty), and abdominoplasty + liposuction. The last mentioned is probably one of the best known in the field. It is often chosen by women within the so-called mommy makeover, when after the birth of the last planned child they want to remove sagging skin on their bellies, or suture loosen muscles of the abdominal wall, and at the same time get rid of fat pockets there.
What are the benefits of combined plastic procedures then? We have already mentioned the main ones:
One surgical session
One anaesthesia – means less strain put on your body. What is also important to mention – multiple surgeries do not necessarily mean double pain. According to a medical study conducted by the American Association of Plastic Surgeons in 2012, patients haven’t reported bigger pains after abdominoplasty surgery combined with a liposuction.
Human body is a complex system, therefore a combination of several interventions in one problematic area may bring better and visible results.
One recovery time
One, not two subsequent convalescence times, while the average length of recovery after the combined procedures equals to one. This was confirmed in particular by combinations of breast uplift + augmentation, also a very common women’s choice.
Good news for your wallet
You will save on pre op check-up, anaesthesia and hospitalisation.
One thing with another, why are combined procedures in plastic surgery so popular? The motto of many patients is: if I go for a change, then I do it from the ground. All at once without compromises and unnecessary risks. Medical study from 2005, done by plastic surgeons, found out that combined procedures didn’t show statistically higher incidences of complications than single ones. Your choice of a surgeon is absolutely crucial – go for the one with many years of experience, preferably in the combined surgeries that you are interested in. Such surgeons also always cooperate with an experienced anaesthesiologist. When a top medical team, individual approach and proper planning merge, then everything falls into place.
