Summary: One of the biggest cosmetic surgery trends today is combining procedures so that you get more change for less surgery time. If you don’t want to have to go under the knife multiple times and know that you want more than one procedure (like a facelift and liposuction!), ask your doctor about combining them into one session!
Easy and Beautiful
Like fast food, when it comes to plastic surgery the ‘combo’ is often the best deal. Just like how you often want a burger AND fries but only want to pay once, many women are opting for two surgeries in one so that they don’t have to recover, pay, and go under the knife twice. Combining surgeries is incredibly popular (in the Detroit area especially!) and a good way to reduce your recovery time. Instead of getting breast augmentation, recovering, and then going back for more, why not get it all done at once and save yourself the hassle?
Keeping it all Straight
Most surgeries can be combined, but your board certified plastic surgeon will help make the best selections for you. Combining surgeries can reduce your risk in that you only have to go under anesthesia once, but its also true that the more your body is worked on the greater the chance for complication. Being in good health and able to withstand surgery is your best chance at success. Sometimes combining surgeries can also help reduce your cost, but make sure that this isn’t the only reason you are doing it. Plastic surgery is not necessarily a time to be thrifty.

Combo Number 1
There are many popular combinations of surgery. Cosmetic surgeons are able to perform many different procedures at the same time. Ask your doctor what is best for you. Some of the most popular options are listed below. The following procedures go together like chicken nuggets and french fries:
- Facelift and rhinoplasty
- Facelift and liposuction
- Faceift and tummy tuck
- Facelift and injectable fillers (ex. Botox)
- Chin surgery and rhinoplasty
- Cheek augmentation and brow lift
- And many more…
Make Your Selection
Combining surgeries is becoming increasingly popular, and you can take advantage of the benefits yourself! Talk to your board certified plastic surgeon to see whether or not combining procedures is the best option for you. Remember, no one should have more say than you when it comes to plastic surgery. If you want a facelift and a tummy tuck, ask for it! We all love different combinations (some of us love shakes with our cheese burgers, others prefer a soda!) but when it comes to our surgical story, safety and necessity should always be considered!
