It’s easy to think of plastic surgeries as individual procedures that exist alone and serve only one purpose. However, that is rarely true. In fact, most of our surgeries are extremely successful when paired with one another. If you’re going to invest your time and money into plastic surgery, you’d better come out looking just how you’d hoped. Why not combine more than one procedure to get the ultimate result? Feeling curious? We’ve compiled a list of some of our most popular plastic surgery combination procedures; explore and consider which pairings you think would help you meet your body contouring goals.
Liposuction and Tummy Tuck
When patients come to us complaining about stubborn, fat, or droopy skin around their midsection, we know that we have two surgical tools at our disposal that can easily and successfully manage this problem. Liposuction and tummy tucks are powerful plastic surgery tools. Individually, they provide patients with results they can feel proud of, but when combined, our patients leave, bursting with confidence, feeling like they’ve gained years of their lives back. During this combo procedure, the tummy tuck is performed, during which the plastic surgeon removes excess skin from the midsection and stitches the patient back up, leaving a flat, tight belly. The liposuction aspect enables the surgeon to target and remove fat from pockets in the belly. Liposuction can also be used to target the arms, legs, or buttocks helping to ensure your whole body is tighter and more fit.
Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck
Deciding to undergo a breast augmentation or tummy tuck is significant for many people. So when you’re ready to choose one, why not choose both? Breast augmentation has been the most popular plastic surgery in the world for many years. Women love the ability that it gives them to enhance their breasts so that they look and feel confident and beautiful in their clothes. Once you’ve invested in a breast augmentation, you might as well speak to your plastic surgeon about combining that surgery with a tummy tuck. Tummy tucks give patients a smooth, flat tummy that is almost impossible to achieve without surgery. This surgical combination is ideal for women who want to reclaim the confidence and figure of their youth. Why not start getting ready for bikini season next year now?
The human body goes through a lot of trauma to carry a baby to term and then feed it for the first year of its life. Women come into our office daily concerned about the loose skin and extra bits of body fat that are the direct result of motherhood. One of the best, most exciting things we have to offer for our patients is called a mommy makeover. Mommy makeovers are combination procedures where you and your plastic surgeon decide on a combination of surgeries that will help bring you back to a place of feeling confident and beautiful. Mommy makeovers can include surgeries like breast augmentation, a breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck, liposuction, and more. If you are interested in reclaiming your body after motherhood, we would love to help you decide on the right procedures for you.
Maybe you’re not ready for a combination of plastic surgeries, but you are considering non-surgical options. Many injectables can also be used in combinations to instantly brighten your face, smooth your wrinkles, and improve your complexion. A very popular combination is Botox and Juvéderm. Botox reduces the appearance of wrinkles, while Juvéderm is a dermal filler that is primarily known for creating beautifully full lips. If you’d like to learn more about our non-surgical options, visit our website or contact our office.
Known for improving the appearance of patients’ faces by tightening the sagging skin in your neck and chin, Renuvion® is not just for faces. Renuvion® can also be used to treat areas on the arms, legs, midsection, and buttocks. It’s an exciting technology that uses radiofrequency energy and helium plasma to tighten areas of skin that droop or sag. The procedure causes your body to create new collagen over the following months, causing it to tighten further over time. This can be a combination procedure where several areas are treated simultaneously. Dr. DeMercurio can give you more information about your specific case, how many areas can be safely treated, and where to start first.
We want you to get the most out of your time with us. Our combination procedures are perfect for people with busy lives who can’t take time out multiple times a year for a little nip here or tuck there. We urge patients to consider combination surgeries for their efficiency and because you’ll reduce your recovery time by combining them.
