If you have been considering multiple plastic surgery procedures, you might be wondering if you could save time and get them all done at one time. The short answer is that this may be possible, but there are several factors to take into consideration regarding the type of procedures you want and the procedure and recovery themselves.
Any surgery comes with some risk of complications, but these are a few things you should ask yourself to minimize those risks:
Although these are not the only surgical procedures you may be able to combine, they are some of the most common ones and can give you an idea of what may be possible with your cosmetic goals. For safety and optimal results, only two or three procedures are usually done at once.
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, removes excess or drooping skin from above or below the eyelids to open up the eyes. Excess skin can create a tired or aged appearance and this surgery creates a more youthful, alert appearance. A facelift will also rejuvenate your youthful appearance. Incisions are made along the hairline or sides of the face to pull back the skin and reconstruct the underlying muscles for a tighter appearance.
As previously discussed, a facelift pulls back the skin and removes excess skin to create a smoother, tighter, and more youthful appearance. Dr. Ransom performs a variety of facelifts including the mini facelift and endoscopic midface lift. A fat transfer takes excess fat from other areas of the body (thighs, stomach, buttocks, etc.) and transfers it to other areas, such as the face, to add more volume. A fat transfer can also augment the breasts or buttocks.
Chin augmentation enhances your facial profile by inserting implants into the chin. Dr. Ransom specializes in chin augmentation revision and has helped many patients achieve beautiful definition in their faces. A rhinoplasty (nose surgery) can change the shape of the nose, remove bumps on the bridge of the nose, or lift a drooping tip.
