It can be quite appealing to consider combining your Denver abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” with other procedures in order to reach your esthetic goals in one surgery. Sometimes called a “mommy makeover” when combined with a breast augmentation, this is actually a fairly common choice that may be a good option depending on your particular goals. Abdominoplasty is usually combined with liposuction, as well.

Combining Abdominoplasty with Other Procedures

When you are deciding whether to combine your Denver abdominoplasty with any other procedure, there are some serious considerations that should be made. There are pros and cons to any combined surgery. The number one factor in deciding if a combined procedure is right for you is the length of time required in the operating room. Your physician will talk with you, keeping safety in mind above everything else. 

Benefits of combining abdominoplasty:

  • Overall results in a shorter period of time
  • Reduction in number of times you need to go under anesthesia
  • Reduced cost

Potential drawbacks of combining abdominoplasty:

  • Recovery time can be longer than for an abdominoplasty alone
  • Longer periods under anesthesia increase the risk of complications
