Plastic Surgery -Total Transformation
Do It Once, Enjoy Spectacular Results
It’s been called “extreme” plastic surgery – undergoing multiple surgical procedures at one time. But what’s truly extreme about it are the advantages patients can realize by clustering their plastic surgery to achieve their transformation in one fell swoop.
It’s Less Expensive
Having multiple procedures performed at the same time costs less than having them performed individually. Why? Because most plastic surgeons (myself included) discount each individual procedure during a “transformation” surgery. Our time is used more efficiently and we reciprocate by charging you less. In addition, there’s only one facility fee and one anesthesia fee. When you have procedures performed separately, these expenses are repeated each time.
There’s Less Downtime
Having more than one procedure done at once means there’s only one recovery period, which translates into less time off from work or away from your regular routine.
You Get the Most Natural Look
This is perhaps the most important advantage of having multiple procedures done at one time. Here’s why: The signs of aging, excess weight, skin sagging and other surgical issues, generally aren’t limited to one region of the face or body. In order to obtain the most cohesive, natural-looking result, many patients will benefit from subtle surgery to several adjacent areas, rather than dramatic improvements in a single area.
Facelifts Address Many Issues
For example, a facelift often is combined with eyelid surgery and laser resurfacing to achieve the greatest rejuvenation. There’s no sense eliminating jowls and “turkey neck” if hooded eyelids are going to ruin the overall effect. And a skin tightening laser treatment will bring it all together – while removing brown spots and other surface irregularities. A browlift may also be added to rejuvenate the aesthetic arch of the brows and smooth the wrinkles of the forehead and between the brows. Excess lateral eyelid skin hooding is also remedied.
Beauty Is All About Proportion
Patients who are bothered by an oversized nose often re-analyze with overall proportion in mind. Instead of just reducing and refining the nose, they opt for a chin implant to balance the nose in profile. This improves overall facial proportion and results in a more ideal aesthetic outcome.
Facial Volume Improvement
The most up-to-date thinking about facial rejuvenation emphasizes volume as well as, or even instead of, tightening. Removing lax skin helps everyone, but for many women that “tired” look has more to do with loss of subcutaneous fullness than skin laxity. The new volumizing fillers, such as Sculptra, can add the needed fullness either before, after or during the face lifting procedures. The result is a subtle, nuanced clarifying of the entire face.
Abdominoplasties and Liposuction also Address Many Issues
While tightening the lax tissue of the tummy can produce a dramatic result, even better contour may be achieved by liposuction of the circumference of the torso (those pesky back rolls) and the upper abdomen at the same time. This produces more of a full body “contouring”, instead of a unidimensional tightening. Or how about adding some recontouring of the hips and thighs with liposuction at the same time?
What about the Breasts?
Is it just breast enlargement that is needed, or do you need to also have an uplift (also known as mastopexy) to get the nicest, most rejuvenated breast lifted effect? Or if the breasts are too large, perhaps a reduction? And many times we can work on some of the excess tissue of the upper arms with liposuction or a tightening procedure known as “brachioplasty” or arm lift, creating a full upper body rejuvenation.
The thighs have it
And is it just some liposuction that is needed on the outer or inner thighs or the areas around the lateral buttock? Or is a lifting procedure going to help the legs and buttocks look younger and more svelte? Lateral thigh and buttock lifting or medial thigh lifting might be the answer.
Your Best Interests Come First
First and foremost, your best interests, well-being and SAFETY are of paramount importance. Keeping you safe and healthy while achieving the desired goals of plastic surgery is my number-one priority. If combined procedures are right for you and not unduly increasing risks, then I am quite comfortable with that. It’s my job to assess your individual situation and decide just how much is right for you.
It’s Up to You
How extensive your aesthetic surgery becomes is up to you. During our consultation, I’ll give you the benefit of my experience and aesthetic training. My goal is not to talk you into having more surgery than you should, but to ensure that you achieve the most pleasing and long-lasting results possible.
When you’re ready for that consultation, give us a call! Come in for a “fact-finding” assessment. We can provide a rejuvenation to fit every need and every budget, as well as considering how much “down time” you can take.
From fillers to Botox, from skin care to lasers, from single surgeries to combination procedures, we at Brevard Plastic Surgery and Skin Treatment Center want you to look and feel the best you can. “We love our work. . . . and it shows!!!”
