Breast surgery can enhance your appearance through breast augmentation with implants or a breast lift. Breast reduction can give you the balanced figure you’ve always wanted and alleviate painful symptoms of macromastia (large breasts). Whether you’re restoring breast shape and placement after pregnancy and breastfeeding or addressing asymmetrical breasts, these procedures are often combined with body contouring to transform your body shape.
Dr. A.J. Khalil can help you determine whether one or more of these procedures can be combined with your breast surgery at our Beverly Hills office.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Abdominoplasty removes excess skin tissue in the upper and lower abdomen and tightens underlying muscles loosened by weight gain, pregnancy or other factors. A tummy tuck is regularly paired with liposuction for body contouring and is often part of a “mommy makeover.” The mommy makeover is designed to restore your body to pre-pregnancy form through breast surgery, liposuction and tummy tuck.
This fat reduction surgery removes stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise from one or more body areas, from your ankles up to your chin. The “love handles,” abdomen, back and arms are a few of the regions commonly treated with liposuction. Once removed, the fat cells are gone for good. Liposuction can be combined with breast surgery and other plastic surgeries, including tummy tuck or as part of Brazilian butt lift.
The Benefits of Combining Plastic Surgeries
The most substantial benefit of combining plastic surgeries such as breast augmentation and tummy tuck is that you only go through one recovery period. The healing process is time-consuming, and you need help around the house and with childcare if you have children. You must take time away from work and avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for up to two months. By combining your desired plastic surgeries, you reduce the time you need to take off work and have help from family and friends, all while achieving dramatic results faster than you would if you decided to space out the procedures.
Combining your surgeries may reduce certain risks such as complications from general anesthesia and infection during recovery. There could be some cost-saving benefits because it’s a one-time fee for the hospital, surgical suite, anesthesia, surgeon’s skill and expertise, nursing staff and other expenses associated with the procedures.
