As you are planning for your body contouring surgery, you’ll have several crucial choices to make. One factor you may not have considered is that you can opt to combine procedures to fit your exact goals. Many patients find higher satisfaction with their results from getting more than one surgery at a time, in addition to having only one recovery period, as opposed to the two or more they would experience if they got the procedures done separately.
While a variety of different procedures complement each other perfectly, here are just a few of the most popular combinations you might want to discuss with Dr. Stephan.
- Mommy Makeover
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women discover eating right and exercising regularly are not enough to restore their pre-baby bodies. That’s because, on their own, traditional approaches to weight loss are not enough to address all the changes a woman’s body goes through after carrying a child to term and nurturing it for months.
A mommy makeover is a blanket term for any combination of procedures that helps women get their confidence and curves back after growing their families. One of the most significant reasons women are choosing to go this route is that you can group individual procedures for a fully customizable experience, including:
- Daddy Do-Over
Like the mommy makeover, the daddy do-over is a solution that can help men feel more comfortable with their appearance. Though men don’t have to worry about the physical changes that occur with pregnancy, age, genetics, and hormones can all cause men to experience a range of unwanted issues such as a beer belly, love handles, and the much-maligned “man boobs.”
Men can struggle with their body image and age-related weight gain just as much as women do, which is why men are increasingly pursuing this option. With a daddy do-over, Dr. Stephan can make men feel younger and more revitalized. Here are some of the procedures you might choose as part of your do-over:
- Brazilian Butt Lift
If you’ve been dreaming of attaining a more curvaceous silhouette, a procedure known as a Brazilian butt lift could be exactly the answer you’ve been looking for. During a butt lift surgery, Dr. Stephan will combine liposuction with fat grafting to subtly contour not just your buttocks, but also your waist, hips, or other trouble spots you have struggled to reshape on your own. As a result, you’ll achieve a smooth, sexy hourglass figure in one surgery. The Brazilian butt lift is effective for dramatically reshaping your body. By harvesting fat from areas that frustrate you and moving it into your buttocks region, Dr. Stephan can help you address multiple cosmetic concerns simultaneously.
- Breast Procedures
If you are self-conscious about the size, shape, position, and projection of your breasts, breast surgery can give you the results you deserve. For example, women whose large, sagging breasts give them neck and back pain and make it uncomfortable to do specific physical activities may get relief by combining a breast lift with a breast reduction.
Meanwhile, adding a breast lift to a breast augmentation will give you enhanced symmetry and fullness in your breasts, as well as improving the size and position of your nipples and areolas.
- Arm Lift + Liposuction
Brachioplasty, more commonly known as an arm lift, is a body contouring surgery that can remove lax, hanging skin from your upper arms. If you’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight, you may wish to get an arm lift to help you achieve a fitter, more toned look and to enhance the underlying muscle contouring of your arms.
In many cases, your arm lift will include liposuction to simultaneously eliminate any stubborn fatty tissue that could keep you from getting the smooth, sleek results you’re trying to achieve.
