Combining cosmetic surgery procedures offers patients the most comprehensive results. It minimizes recovery time and allows patients to see their results faster. Plus, in some cases, it can be more affordable.
A lot of cosmetic procedures are available to patients, so there are numerous possible combinations. The option that’s right for you depends on your specific cosmetic goals.
Are you considering a combination approach to cosmetic surgery? Dr. Robert Galiano shares the most popular combination procedures below.
Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation
The aging process, weight fluctuations and life events such as pregnancy and breastfeeding cause the skin of the breasts to become loose and sag, making the breasts look deflated.
When a breast lift and breast augmentation are combined, issues with the size, shape and position of the breasts are addressed at the same time.
Breast augmentation enhances the size of the breasts while a breast lift reshapes and repositions the breasts and removes excess skin.
Combining a breast lift with breast augmentation leaves patients with perkier, more youthful-looking breasts with just one procedure.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding affect the body in several ways. The skin of the breasts and abdomen stretches and becomes loose, the abdominal muscles weaken and there are more fat deposits throughout the body.
A mommy makeover usually consists of a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast enhancement (breast lift, breast augmentation or both), and the procedure can restore a woman’s body to the way it looked pre-pregnancy.
A tummy tuck removes excess skin and tightens the weakened abdominal muscles to create a flatter, smoother abdomen. Liposuction rids the body of stubborn fat cells and improves the body’s contour. And, as previously discussed, breast enhancement procedures improve the size, form, and position of the breasts.
Facelift with Eyelid Surgery
As people age, they develop lines and wrinkles on their face. Their skin droops and bags form under their eyes.
Facelift and eyelid surgery are two of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for facial rejuvenation. Combining these procedures simultaneously addresses the aforementioned issues with the eyes and with the upper, middle and lower regions of the face.
Eyelid Surgery with a Forehead Lift
Wrinkles and deep creases in the forehead can lead to hooding over the eyes, which can interfere with people’s peripheral vision or make it difficult to open the eyes completely.
Combining eyelid surgery with a forehead lift reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes and upper region of the face to restore a more youthful appearance. Plus, it raises and reshapes drooping skin around the eyes and eyebrows, enhancing patients’ vision.
