The combinations in plastic surgery have been a very popular resource used by patients who wish to take advantage of one single admission in the hospital to correct more than one imperfection. That is perfectly possible, as long as there is not an overreaction, and the patient is healthy enough for the procedures he wants. It is up to the surgeon to judge, accepting or refusing some procedures.
The greatest advantage of these surgery associations is the results obtained in one single procedure, which saves the patient’s time and money.
The most frequent combinations in plastic surgery are:
• Liposuction and abdominoplasty;
• Liposuction, abdominoplasty, and mammoplasty (with or without breast implants);
• Abdominoplasty and mammoplasty (with or without breast implants);
• Facelift and Blepharoplasty.
The main candidates to combined surgeries are women, after one or more pregnancies, which for many reasons lost their measurements and body contour because of the changes caused by pregnancy.
Before choosing associating surgeries, we must take into account the specific features of each patient and have a thorough medical evaluation. Diabetes, anemia, and hypertension are some of the problems that contraindicate this resource.
It is important to highlight the need of a proper pre-surgical care, and a qualified team, so the surgical risk is the same as the one for a smaller surgery.
