Although some people save up for one must-have plastic surgery procedure, others seek an entire makeover. They may want a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, face lift, butt lift or other combination of procedures. Having multiple procedures is possible, but it must be done with safety in mind. Some procedures can be combined, while others will need to wait. Here are some procedures that combine multiple techniques and what you need to keep in mind.
Probably the most popular multiple-procedure surgery is the Mommy Makeover. These often involve two or more procedures geared toward mothers in their post-childbirth days. Breast augmentation is commonly done, as well as breast lifts, liposuction, tummy tucks and butt lifts. Typically, one procedure is done at a time, although a breast augmentation or lift can be done with a tummy tuck.
For a butt lift, the best results occur when fat is taken from another part of the body. This procedure is ideal for a person who has extra fat in the stomach and wants to transfer it to the buttocks. That way, two procedures can be done at once. It is best to use a traditional liposuction procedure, however. Newer procedures, such as Smart Lipo, break up the fat, making it unusable for fat injections.
Plastic surgery is an elective procedure, but it still comes with risks. If you are looking to have three or four procedures done, it may be wise to split them up into different sessions. Because plastic surgery is an outpatient procedure, most surgeons do not go beyond a six-hour session. Therefore, what can be done during that time will depend on the complexity of the procedures.
In order to stay safe, you need good coordination and medical advice. An experienced plastic surgeon can assess your situation and help formulate a solid plan that will help you achieve the body image you desire.
