A mommy makeover is a combination of body contouring and breast enhancement procedures that can change your look from head to toe. Many women turn to the procedure as a way to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies. However, prospective mommy makeover patients often ask a common question: Is it safe to combine different plastic surgery procedures?
As a responsible practice, we take this question seriously as we want you to know that your safety is our top priority. In this blog post, we will explain why combining surgeries is not only safe but can actually enhance your final results.
Benefits of Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures
Mommy makeover surgery is a prime example of patients combining procedures for better overall results. There are many potential benefits when it comes to this approach to plastic surgery.
A few reasons you may want to undergo multiple procedures at once include:
1. More Dramatic Results
If you only fix one problem area with a single procedure, you may still feel distracted by other parts of your body that aren’t as newly refined. By pairing different surgeries together (such as breast augmentation with a tummy tuck), each area will complement one another and give you more dramatic changes and results overall, as you can see in the before and after photos below. You can learn more about common mommy makeover combinations in our related blog post.
2. Cost Savings
Patients pay certain fees every time they undergo surgery. Some of these charges include surgeon’s fees, operating room fees, and anesthesiology fees. By combining procedures, you only need to pay these fees once, saving a significant amount of money in the process.
3. Recovery Time
Recovery after surgery can be an uncomfortable and emotional experience. It often requires enlisting help from friends and family and using PTO to take time off from work. It’s tolerable, but many patients appreciate the idea of only going through a single recovery period. This is a faster approach than spreading treatments out over time and healing from each of them individually. RealSelf explains more about what to expect during mommy makeover recovery.
4. Fewer Doctor Appointments
Each plastic surgery procedure requires initial consultations and post-op check-ups. When there’s only a single operation, the number of doctor visits is far fewer and you can spend less time traveling and sitting in a waiting room.
If you’re considering combining procedures with a surgery like a mommy makeover, know there is nothing to fear. In the end, this approach can save you money and time while giving you the results you’ve always dreamed of.
