For the right candidates, combining two or more plastic surgery procedures makes perfect sense. Two procedures may be required to achieve the desired aesthetic results. Also, combining procedures involves only one trip to the operating room, one round of anesthesia and one recovery period.
Take a moment to learn more about the most popular plastic surgery combinations offered by Dr. A.J. Khalil.
Mommy makeover, which addresses the effects of pregnancy and nursing on a woman’s body, may be the most well-known plastic surgery combination. Treatment plans vary according to the individual patient’s needs, but mommy makeover generally includes a procedure to improve the stomach (e.g., tummy tuck) plus a procedure to treat the breasts (e.g., breast lift with or without implants). Liposuction may also be incorporated to refine areas of the body that have retained excess fat.
Breast Lift and Implants
Women who want to raise, firm and increase the volume of the breasts simultaneously should consider combining breast lift with breast augmentation. Breast lift alone improves only breast drooping without altering the volume of the breasts, and breast augmentation alone adds volume but does not address breast drooping. By combining the two procedures, women can have shapeless, sagging breasts elevated and enhanced.
Liposuction and Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck involves the removal of excess abdominal fat and skin as well as the tightening of the underlying muscles. Dr. Khalil often recommends incorporating liposuction into tummy tuck to remove fat from the areas surrounding the stomach. By doing so, he can accentuate the muscle tone of the abdomen and create a more attractive physique.
Facelift and Eyelid Surgery
Facelift is a reliable way to tighten and smooth loose skin on the middle and lower areas of the face as well as the neck. But facelift does not provide full-face rejuvenation, since it does not treat anything above the cheeks. Dr. Khalil frequently performs facelift and eyelid surgery at the same time to transform the entire face at once.
Is Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures Safe?
Patient safety is Dr. Khalil’s main priority. If evaluating you for a combination operation, he will take a thorough medical history to ensure you are healthy enough to undergo multiple procedures. If Dr. Khalil feels that combining surgeries could put your health or safety at risk, he will explore other options with you.
