‘Tis the season for baring your body at the beach, on the boat, or hanging around the pool. And whenever the heat rises, and people begin attending parties and going on vacations, we see an influx of new patients ready to achieve their summer body goals. Each year, a percentage of our new patients are wise enough to opt for combination procedures. If you’re going to undergo a surgical procedure and the accompanying recovery time, you might as well get the most bang for your buck out of your experience! Below are several combination plastic surgery procedures offered at Dr. Demercurio’s practice.
The mommy makeover is the most dramatic of our combination plastic surgery options. It’s an incredible group of procedures that help moms feel more like themselves after watching their bodies change and grow through the process of carrying babies and then raising them. The main procedures involved in a Mommy Makeover are liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast augmentation. Liposuction is a procedure through which a plastic surgeon removes unwanted fat from a patient’s body. This is not a weight-loss procedure but a way to target pockets of fat that a patient has been unable to lose with conventional weight loss techniques. A tummy tuck is a tool that plastic surgeons use to eliminate loose skin from the tummy area. It’s an excellent procedure to pair with liposuction, resulting in a youthful and revitalized appearance. Finally, breast augmentation is a procedure that increases the size of a woman’s breast. This is especially desirable for women who have breastfed their babies and are unsatisfied with the shape and size of their breasts. As you can see, the Mommy Makeover is a very involved set of plastic surgeries that create dramatic and very desirable results.
Liposuction And Tummy Tuck
This combination of plastic surgery is less involved than the Mommy Makeover but contains two of the primary procedures. In this combo, the liposuction targets the abdomen and flanks, which are two of the most common problem areas that patients express. Patients experience significant, transformative results from this combo when paired with a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck, however, is more than just a procedure for eliminating unwanted skin. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon may also tighten connective tissue (known as fascia), which can strengthen your core, help prevent hernias, and improve overall flexibility.
Breast Lift With Breast Augmentation
Finally, one of the most popular combination procedures is breast lift and augmentation surgery. As we mentioned above, breast augmentation is a procedure used to increase the size of a patient’s breast. Commonly known as a boob job, a plastic surgeon may use a breast implant or fat from the patient’s body to increase the size of the breast. The augmentation is a great way to increase breast size and improve breast shape after weight loss or pregnancy. When paired with a breast lift, this combination of plastic surgeries gives patients renewed confidence in their appearances. Over the last few decades, the breast lift has increased in popularity and is more popular than breast augmentation. The breast lift eliminates extra skin and tightens breast tissue creating a youthful and refreshed appearance. This combination surgery is a confidence booster for patients.
If you’re hoping to achieve dramatic and significant physical results, combining plastic surgeries may be your best option.
