Is it Safe to Combine Plastic Surgery Procedures into One Operation?

Combining Plastic Surgery ProceduresMany of our patients at Plastic Surgery Group at City Centre ask our plastic surgeons if it’s safe to combine several plastic surgery procedures into one operation. The answer ultimately depends on the individual patient and the circumstances.

Read on as our team discusses the topic in detail.

Combining Procedures Is Safe

As long as you are in good general health, combining plastic surgery procedures into a single operation should be safe. There are always risks involved with any surgery but working with a qualified plastic surgeon who performs the operation in an accredited surgical facility minimizes the potential for a complication.

Another thing to consider is your cosmetic goals. If, after consulting with a reputable plastic surgeon, you believe having multiple procedures will give you the cosmetic results you want, then a combination operation makes sense. However, depending on your goals, your surgeon may determine that a single procedure will give you the specific results you desire.

The Benefits of Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures

Here are some of the benefits that you can expect from a combination procedure:

More comprehensive results: Combining certain procedures, like liposuction with tummy tuck, or breast lift with implants, can produce more dramatic and noticeable results.

One recovery period: Every time you undergo a cosmetic surgical procedure, you will need to plan for a recovery period. Having multiple procedures done at once means you will only have to undergo one recovery period and take time off from work and other activities once.

Cost effective: Combining procedures means you only have to pay for certain fees, like anesthesia and facilities fees, once.

Faster results: If you stage out procedures into separate surgeries, you will have to wait until you are fully recovered from the first procedure before undergoing the next. Having multiple procedures done at once means you will see and enjoy your results sooner.

A Message from PSG

As COVID-19 spreads across the country, our patients’ and our staffs’ health and welfare are our primary concern. To reduce the risk of spreading the virus we are implementing changes to reduce person to person contact. We may only be able to see urgent consults and follow ups. This applies to our offices as well as our clinics at the hospital. If appropriate, our staff may contact you to arrange a telephone appointment. As our senior population are at greatest risk, we will endeavour to reduce their exposure by deferring in person appointments unless absolutely necessary. Regrettably, there is a high likelihood your upcoming procedure or surgery may be deferred. If so, we will make every effort to rebook you as soon as the COVID-19 crisis resolves. We are closely following the guidance of the Ministry of Health and the Fraser Health Authority. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
