Many patients have several things they would like to improve about their bodies or facial appearance, but because of cost or time restrictions, they feel they are limited to only one procedure. Dr. Clark frequently performs more than one procedure at one time, which not only provides better overall results, but it also saves the patient time and money in the long run.
Most women know that the abdomen is not the only area affected by pregnancy. Whether or not the mother chooses to breastfeed, the shape and size of the breasts will begin to change as early as a couple of weeks after conception. Pregnant women also tend to gain weight in their hips and thighs and in other areas that were not “trouble zones” in the past. Patients can choose any combination of procedures that may include tummy tuck, liposuction, breast augmentation, and/or breast lift to restore their pre-pregnancy body. These procedures performed separately will cost more. Combining the procedures you want in the Mommy Makeover can save you up to $3,000 collectively compared to getting them done at separate times.When procedures are done at the same time, or at least close together, there is less time away from your job and from earning capacity or family and personal interests. There is a significant savings in personal time when you only have to recover once, rather than having another period of recovery time at a separate date.
As a rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Clark can improve the appearance and function of the nose while enhancing another area of the face at the same time. Rhinoplasty is often combined with either a brow lift, eyelid lift, and lip augmentation. A tip rhinoplasty can accompany a facelift to completely balance the facial features. Each of these procedures usually requires a 10 day to two-week recovery period, but patients can experience this period only once by combining procedures together. Rhinoplasty patients also save time overall by avoiding more pre- and post-operative office visits and scheduled time away from work.
The body lift is a combination of procedures that removes the excess skin that typically results after massive weight loss. Most people have excess skin on their arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and hips that can get in the way of routine activities and can make it appear that they still have weight to lose. The lower body lift usually combines a thigh lift and a circumferential tummy tuck that can improve the appearance of the back and hips as well as the abdomen. Especially when performed all at once, body lift procedures can be a very rewarding and transformational, as they give patients the final result they hoped to gain after losing a vast amount of weight.
The cost and recovery time of each procedure combination is highly individualized. At your consultation with Dr. Clark, your physical anatomy will be assessed, and together you and Dr. Clark will arrive at the treatment that is the best fit for your schedule, budget, health, and desired results.
