Combining Cosmetic Procedures Maximizes Beautiful Outcomes

If you’re like a lot of people, you may have more than one beauty concern. Many of the people we meet express a desire to improve multiple aspects of their appearance. It makes sense since aging affects the entire body. If you are interested in achieving more impressive results, you may consider combining cosmetic treatments. In some ways, doing so can seem daunting. However, board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Rosenthal pair up various procedures all the time. They do so safely and efficiently as a way to maximize beautiful patient outcomes.

Combining plastic surgery procedures can achieve several benefits.


Having plastic surgery means taking time away from a busy schedule for a smooth and healthy recovery. Combining procedures avoids the need to take multiple breaks from life. The surgery itself takes a bit longer but the recovery happens in the same amount of time it would after just one procedure. Furthermore, there is only one recovery needed, rather than two or more. The activity restrictions between common procedures are similar, so it makes sense to tackle multiple concerns at once.

Cost Savings

When procedures are performed in one surgery, there is one visit to the operating room, so only one fee for this part of the process. There is only one recovery period, so, overall, less time off work. Combining procedures also means only one round of anesthesia, one consultation, one round of post-operative medications, and one series of follow-up visits.

Better Results Much Faster

Often, surgical combinations are performed on adjacent areas. For example, a woman may combine breast augmentation or a breast lift with a tummy tuck. Blepharoplasty, the procedure that rejuvenates the eyelids, may be combined with a brow lift or a facelift. By correcting the signs of aging in an adjacent area, we achieve more dramatic, naturally-beautiful results much more quickly than if procedures were performed years apart.

Common plastic surgery combinations include:

  • Breast lift and augmentation. Together, these two procedures improve the volume, shape, and projection of the breasts.
  • Mommy Makeover. This combination of breast and tummy procedures restore the midsection by reducing fat, tightening muscle and skin, and enhancing the breasts.
  • Facial Rejuvenation can be maximized through various combinations. Examples include facelift and neck lift, brow lift and eyelid lift, and injectable cheek or chin augmentation.
