Benefits of Combining Cosmetic Surgeries
Deciding to undergo cosmetic surgery to improve your features can be exciting and more than a bit daunting all at the same time. There is often a sense of exhilaration at committing yourself to something that you have been dreaming about doing for a long time.
Yet at the same time, you may also be thinking about the financial commitment, how much time you might need to take off from work, school, or child-care duties, as well as how well your final outcome from surgery will match up to your goals. These reactions can be even more intense if Dr. Mark Deuber suggests combining surgical procedures to get the best results. The truth is, there can be some distinct benefits to combining more than one cosmetic surgery into one procedure. Read further to find out more.
Combining Surgeries May Save You Money
While most of Dr. Deuber’s patients can address their goals with only one surgical procedure, others may find that combining procedures works better to get them the best results.
A Mommy Makeover package, which is designed to help women regain the body that they had prior to childbirth, is an excellent example of combining more than one surgical procedure. It usually combines a tummy tuck procedure with either a breast augmentation or reduction procedure. It can also include a breast lift, to correct sagging or drooping breasts as a result of breastfeeding, as well as liposuction.
While it is true that the cost for a Mommy Makeover package will be more than for just a tummy tuck or a breast augmentation, the package will still be less expensive than having those two surgeries done separately on different dates. This is because you would only need to pay one fee for some parts of the combined procedure, such as the surgery center and the anesthesiologist.
Combining Surgeries Can Mean a Shorter Recovery Time
Any cosmetic surgery should be approached as if it was medically necessary, particularly in terms of your recovery time. You will need to follow all of the instructions that Dr. Deuber gives you in order to get the best possible results. This could mean an initial recovery time of up to two weeks, particularly if you are planning an in-depth procedure.
If you are undergoing two procedures, that would mean four weeks of recovery, two weeks for each procedure. On the other hand, combining procedures would mean only two weeks of recovery from both procedures at the same time. This can be a real bonus if you need to take time off from work or school, or arrange for somebody else to take care of your children during your recovery.
Getting to Your Final Goal
You may find that a combination of surgeries will get you the best results. Aside from the economic advantages, you may also find that combining procedures can get you to your final goal faster. Combining, for example, a tummy tuck and a liposuction procedure will allow you to remove excess loose skin and address stubborn pockets of excess fat at the same time after a dramatic weight loss. Your goal of showing off the efforts of your hard work to lose weight and get in better shape can be enhanced by combining these surgical procedures.
Of course, if your goals can be reached with one surgery, that is optimal. However, there can often be some distinct benefits to considering combining two separate cosmetic procedures at the same time. Dr. Deuber can help you determine if this is a good option for you.
