The “Total” Body Makeover

There are several advantages to combining procedures when choosing cosmetic surgery in Tampa. However, it’s still important to do your homework first, and make sure you’re prepared mentally and physically for this more intensive process.

 

Benefits of Combining

If you’re considering a tummy tuck and liposuction and a breast lift, it makes sense to have these procedures performed all at once. After all, you’re already under anesthesia and it makes sense to have just one recovery period.

 

Although combining procedures can be very beneficial, you should still be cautious that you don’t go overboard. An involved cosmetic surgery procedure will be a lot for your body to handle, and additional procedures just add to the strain. In some cases, the procedures will definitely complement each other, such as in the case of combining liposuction with a tummy tuck. However, if the additional procedures are also very involved, you may be setting yourself up for a longer recovery period.

 

Extra Commitment

With more extensive procedures, and especially with more than one of them, you’ll need to make an extra commitment to the longer healing process that will be required. With more areas in your body that need healing, your body won’t be able to recover as quickly as it would from a single procedure. Some patients may benefit from giving their body a chance to recover fully before coming back in for a second round. Again, combining procedures isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Just be prepared, and know that convenience on the operating table may mean a greater commitment to recovery later on.
