The Benefits of Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures

Posted on November 13, 2016 by: Dr. Ronald DeMars

Every year, Dr. Ronald DeMars meets with hundreds of patients seeking the best, most natural-looking results via plastic surgery. While many patients come in looking for one procedure, they are surprised to hear that they may actually benefit from two or more procedures. Although the idea of combining procedures may sound intimidating to some, it actually comes with several benefits. Here, Portland plastic surgeon Dr. DeMars outlines some of those benefits.

Combining Facial Rejuvenation Procedures

Recently, Dr. DeMars blogged about the benefits of combining facelift, eyelid surgery and brow lift. As mentioned in that blog post, combining these procedures can create a more natural-looking and balanced facial appearance. Non-surgical treatments like Botox and dermal fillers are also frequently combined with surgical procedures like facelift or eyelid surgery. Or, they can also be used to maintain the results from facelift and other procedures in subsequent years to make a patient’s results long-lasting. In any case, combining facial rejuvenation procedures allows a plastic surgeon to maintain or restore balance and harmony to a patient’s facial features for more natural-looking results.

Combining Body Contouring Procedures

Many female patients seek out the services of Dr. DeMars to restore their pre-pregnancy body. Mommy makeover is a plastic surgery treatment that addresses several physical concerns that result from pregnancy and breastfeeding, including sagging breasts, loose, excess skin, weak abdominal muscles and unwanted fat. The treatment is customized to fit the unique needs of each patient and can include breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, tummy tuck and other body lift procedures. By combining these procedures, women can restore (or even improve upon) their pre-pregnancy body; in other words, perkier breasts, a flatter tummy and sexier body contours. Body contouring procedures can also be combined to address a range of post-weight loss concerns including loose, saggy skin on the abdomen, arms, thighs and stubborn fat on various body areas. By undergoing body contouring treatment, both men and women can achieve a slimmer, more svelte physique.

Additional Benefits

Combining plastic surgery procedures is safe, so long as you work with a board certified plastic surgeon that is trained and experienced. Additionally, by combining two or more procedures into one operation, you only pay for anesthesia and facility fees once. This also means you avoid additional visits to your plastic surgeon’s office. Combination procedures also help you minimize your downtime. By undergoing your procedures all at once, your body heals faster than it would if you scheduled your procedures separately. This means you can show off your results sooner!
