When you need to have an important medical procedure performed that will negatively impact your appearance, you may consider having plastic surgery or reconstructive surgery afterward to correct the damage. Unfortunately, it may take a considerable amount of time after your initial procedure before you are ready for another surgery, and the costs of two surgeries in a row can be extravagant.
Because of this, it is becoming increasingly common to combine procedures into a single surgical session. Having your medical surgery and cosmetic surgery performed at the same time can significantly reduce costs, as well as the inherent risks associated with anesthesia use. Additionally, undergoing one recovery period instead of two is easier on your body and your lifestyle.
Some examples of surgeries that are typically requested together include:
- Hysterectomy combined with liposuction or a tummy tuck
- Mastectomy combined with breast reconstruction
- Eye tumor removal combined with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
