Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures
Many people focus on the way their face looks from the front, but the profile – or side view – is also a defining feature of beauty. For those who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their profile, there are many benefits to combining facial procedures to perfect your overall look.
If you were Many patients opt to have facial procedures performed at different stages in their lives, but combining them may make the results appear more natural. For example, while a facelift can make the jawline and face look younger, it may appear out of sync with aged skin around the eyes or mouth. However, by combining a facelift with dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvederm, patients can enjoy a uniformly youthful look for their entire profile.
One-time Risks and Recovery
Working with a board certified and experienced surgeon is the safest way to have a plastic surgery procedure. That being said, there are still risks associated with any operation. By combining multiple procedures into a single operation, the risk of complications due to anesthetics, infection, or bleeding are combined into one procedure. In addition combining procedures means you will only have to go through the process of recovery once. Instead of taking off of work or school for multiple procedures and their corresponding recovery times, you can consolidate the process and recuperate just one time.
The fees associated with a plastic surgery procedure come from different places. There are fees to the surgeon, fees to the surgery center, fees to the anesthesiologist and the cost of recovery (garments, time off work, etc). We are not telling you this to scare you but instead for you to think about saving money by combining procedures. If a breast lift and tummy tuck are on your ‘wishlist’, it may be cost effective to combine those procedures into one operation – which means one fee to the anesthesiologist, one fee to the surgeon, one time recovery, etc.
Commonly Combined Procedures
Although the eyes and skin may be the focus of many facial procedures, the nose, lips, and chin affect the profile the most. Rhinoplasty and chin augmentations can be combined to correct a weak profile, and they can also be performed at the same time as cheek augmentation, neck lifts, and lip fillers.
Altering your profile can have prominent effects on your appearance, and the procedures can easily be combined to save on time, money, and potential discomfort. For more information on these procedures, contact William Franckle, MD, FACS at 856-772-6500 today for your plastic surgery consultation.
