A new year is right around the corner, which for many of us means a chance to reinvent ourselves and put our best feet forward. If plastic surgery is part of that fresh start for you, you should know there’s a way to maximize your results while minimizing your recovery downtime: combining procedures.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon serving Long Island, Manhattan, and Westchester, NY, I often recommend combined procedures as a way to address multiple concerns while saving money and sparing yourself time away from your busy schedule. In this blog post, I’ll discuss a few of my favorite combinations worth considering in the new year.
What Are the Benefits of Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures?
Why have multiple procedures done at once? Combining plastic surgery procedures offers multiple benefits, including:
- Combined recovery time: Having multiple procedures done within the same surgery means you only have to recover once, as opposed to having them done separately and undergoing multiple recuperations. This can save you weeks of downtime.
- Cost efficiency: Having a single surgery means only paying a single set of anesthesia and facility fees.
- Improved results: You can achieve more comprehensive and customized results when you have multiple procedures performed at once.
While the best combination of procedures may look different for everyone, there are few popular groupings known for efficiently creating gorgeous results.
Breast Lift With Implants
A combined breast lift and breast augmentation procedure, also called a breast lift with implants, adds volume to the breasts and addresses droopiness or sagging. This is especially popular after weight loss or pregnancy, as major body changes often affect both the shape and size of the breasts.
This procedure involves lifting the breast tissues along with inserting silicone or saline implants. (You can learn more about the pros and cons of each implant type in this blog post.)

A mommy makeover isn’t just for mommies. This head-to-toe transformation includes a mix of breast enhancement, tummy tuck, liposuction, and occasionally other procedures, such as a Brazilian butt lift.
Facelift, Eyelid Surgery & Brow Lift
A facelift is one of the most trusted and effective facial rejuvenation procedures, but it only addresses the lower two-thirds of the face. Combining it with eyelid surgery and/or a brow lift extends rejuvenation to the upper face as well.
Results of both procedures last many years, essentially turning back the clock by as much as a decade. You can maintain or extend those results for even longer with injectables and other nonsurgical treatments.
