You might have a “cosmetic surgery bucket list” of nips and tucks you dream of getting. You may want a tummy tuck to get rid of sagging skin after pregnancy, a breast augmentation, or a number of skin removal surgeries after massive weight loss. If cosmetic surgery is even a realistic consideration, you might be limited on time and money and can only choose one. Many patients don’t know that combining procedures is quite common and can be very advantageous for several reasons.
Save Time in Recovery
Recovery time for most major cosmetic procedures is usually about two weeks. While combining procedures may have the potential to slightly prolong recovery initially, you will likely never have to go through a similar experience again. You can request two weeks off from work and not worry as much about what you will miss and your long to-do list when you return.
Combining procedures together will save money in the long run. Many patients choose the Mommy Makeover to reshape their breasts and abdomen with a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction. When performed separately, these procedures can be quite expensive.
Get a Total Transformation
Many patients—especially those who have lost a significant amount of weight—choose a customized surgical plan that includes skin removal on multiple areas of the body. Arm lift, thigh lift, and tummy tuck are some of the most common procedures for people who have lost a significant amount of weight and can provide the patient with a total body transformation all at once. Dr. Batra routinely performs gastric bypass reconstruction at both of his practices in San Diego and Temecula.
