Many factors need to be considered when combining cosmetic surgery procedures. For example, breast and abdominal surgeries work very well together. In addition, rhinoplasty (nasal surgery) is often combined with other facial procedures such as a chin implant or even with some body procedures such as breast augmentation.
A top priority is to make sure you get your combined cosmetic surgery procedures performed by a qualified board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Scott Rotatori.
In general, if your cosmetic surgery procedures can be completed within six to eight hours, then it is reasonable to combine them. However, as the length of surgery increases, then the risk also increases.
Combined Cosmetic Surgery Procedures: The Mommy Makeover
One of the most common combined cosmetic surgery procedures performed by Dr. Rotatori is the Mommy Makeover.
It’s a combination of immensely popular procedures to bring a woman’s body back to the way she looked prior to pregnancy.
Most commonly, some variation of a tummy tuck and breast surgery are performed during a Mommy Makeover. The most common breast procedures include breast lift, breast augmentation or breast reduction. Additional procedures can include liposuction and umbilical hernia repair.
Healing after a tummy tuck will require time. Some patients are out of bed and walking the night of surgery and every hour while awake. Patients are generally allowed to return to work at one to two weeks with 14 days preferred. However, it is strongly recommended that patients avoid any lifting or straining during this period.
At three weeks, an increased level of activity is allowed and at six weeks full activity can return. The actual fat contouring can be done non-surgically as well with CoolSculpting® Elite.
