What Are The Benefits of Combining Multiple Procedures?

Mommy Makeover ConnecticutPregnancy can be a wonderful experience, and many Houston women describe motherhood as the best job they’ve ever had. Yet, no matter how much you love your children and love being a mom, many Houston mothers don’t love the results that pregnancy has left on their bodies. The truth is that despite a mother’s diet and exercise regime, many Houston moms are left with a body that has sagging abdominal skin, excess weight gain, stretch marks and droopy or deflated breasts.

It can be difficult for a Houston woman to see her body change so drastically, and be unable to do anything about it on her own. For this reason, some Houston mothers consider getting a mommy makeover – a series of plastic surgery procedures designed to restore the body to its pre-pregnancy state. A mommy makeover is typically one surgery that includes a tummy tuck, breast lift and/or breast augmentation and sometimes liposuction to treat problem areas. While many Houston women desire to have all of these procedures performed, sometimes they question having them conducted in one surgical experience. However, as Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig will explain in this blog post, combining multiple plastic surgery procedures in a mommy makeover provides several benefits to Houston women.

Combining Multiple Plastic Surgery Procedures Can Be More Cost Effective.

Elective plastic surgery is an investment in your body, your happiness, and your wellness. While we all know that elective plastic surgery like a Houston mommy makeover – which is not covered by insurance and must be paid out of pocket – isn’t cheap, most women who have undergone the procedure find the results to be well worth the money spent. However, you should keep in mind that when you undergo a plastic surgery procedure, you aren’t only paying for your plastic surgeon’s services. You’re also paying for access to the surgical center or hospital, the staff that provides you before and after care and an anesthesiologist. If you were to have a breast surgery, tummy tuck, and liposuction performed individually, you would be paying for these additional fees three times. However, by combining all your plastic surgeries into one mommy makeover, you reduce the amount of additional expenses you may pay. 

It’s Safe To Combine Mommy Makeover Procedures

If you are having multiple cosmetic procedures performed in one surgery as with a mommy makeover, it’s obvious that your overall surgery is going to be longer than if you were having only one procedure performed. Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig typically advise that healthy women – who are prescreened during the mommy makeover consultation process – can usually safely undergo 4 to 6 hours of plastic surgery, which is the average amount of time needed to perform all the plastic surgery procedures performed during a mommy makeover. 

Combined Mommy Makeover Procedures Reduce Recovery Time

As we all know, it takes time to recovery from a mommy makeover. Houston mothers getting a mommy makeover, who typically have young children at home, often find that scheduling in time for recovery is difficult, especially since you can’t lift your children for a few weeks after many of the procedures included in a mommy makeover. By combining multiple procedures into one surgery, you reduce the amount of recovery time by streamlining it into one recovery period, often making plastic surgery more feasible for Houston mothers.
