Body sculpting is a versatile plastic surgery technique that can be used for both anti-aging and body contouring purposes. Most body sculpting techniques are designed to address specific, common problem areas, such as the stomach, legs, arms, and buttocks. This means that most body sculpting treatments only address one area at a time. However, different body sculpting treatments can often be combined into one procedure to eliminate the inconvenience of scheduling multiple appointments. This also provides additional benefits over receiving individual surgeries.
What are the Benefits of Combining Procedures?
In addition to reducing your number of required appointments, combining body sculpting procedures can offer the following benefits:
- Single Recovery Period
- If you receive procedures separately, you’ll have to endure multiple recovery periods. This will also prolong the amount of time it will take for you to accomplish your cosmetic goals, as you will not be able to receive additional surgery until you recover.
- Comprehensive Results
- By receiving multiple treatments at once, you can address multiple areas of the body in one session. As a result, you can enjoy body contouring benefits all over the body, as opposed to results in just one area that are less noticeable.
- Reduced Cost
- Combining surgeries will reduce the time you are in surgery as well as the number of times you have to pay for anesthesia, medications and other expenses. In many cases, combining procedures can save you a substantial amount of money.
- Reduced Scarring
- When multiple surgeries are performed at once, your surgeon can often use strategic incisions to perform multiple techniques. This can prevent you from developing numerous scars by receiving surgeries at different times.
What Procedures Can Be Combined?
There are many specialized body sculpting procedures, and most of them can be combined into a single surgery. Liposuction is one of the most common body sculpting treatments and is often used to complement other procedures. Additionally, many patients choose to have a tummy tuck, brachioplasty or thigh lift to accentuate the results from their other treatments. The mommy makeover is a great example of combined procedures, which often includes a tummy tuck, liposuction and other techniques to produce comprehensive body contouring results.
