One of the most asked questions we get from patients is whether they can combine multiple procedures. Fortunately, there are a plethora of surgical procedures that complement each other well and are best completed together for a simultaneous and shorter recovery period. Depending on your desired procedure, Elements Spa’s board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Adibfar can easily determine which complimentary procedures are the right ones for you and your treatment plan. Let’s take a look at some of the most common complementary, or add-on, procedures!
Nipple Correction Alongside Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is a very popular procedure for many reasons. Over time women lose the look of their natural breasts with changes that happen in their lifetime including due to pregnancy, nursing, and the general aging process. During puberty, pregnancy, and/or breastfeeding, the nipples often change. They can look elongated, enlarged, droopy, and often become inverted. With a quick 20-minute procedure Dr. Adibfar can address any of these issues easily and efficiently for nipples that are reduced in diameter size and that feel more comfortable in clothing.
Neck Lift Alongside Facelift
Performing a beautiful facelift is an art form and requires a surgeon with a keen eye for detail and facial artistry. In many cases, facelifts are performed on more mature patients who require more lift in the lower third or half of their face. While the results of a facelift can certainly be beautiful, the appearance of having had a procedure could become more pronounced if a patient has a very aged neck and decides not to augment it. A neck lift alongside a facelift lends seamless results that flow to the eye and give the ideal vision of youth. For this simple yet very vital reason, neck lifts are commonly performed alongside facelifts.
Liposuction is a common add-on, and often necessary for many plastic surgery procedures. Sometimes, however, a patient may want a little extra fat removal and contour in certain areas like the thighs, abdomen, back, and upper arms. Liposuction can almost complement any plastic surgery procedure and with the skills and expertise of a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Adibfar, you can bet that the results will be great but still appear undetectable and natural-looking. In many cases, adding liposuction to your desired procedure can take anywhere between 15 minutes and up to one hour depending on the body part. With that little extra fat removed, patients notice a smoother and more desirable silhouette and contour that they love.
