Body contouring is often planned as a combination of individual procedures, together creating a unified whole that is greater than the individual components. Liposuction, abdominoplasty, and aesthetic surgery of the breasts, when combined, often are referred to a a “mommy makeover”. In patients who have experienced dramatic weight loss, combination procedures often are performed to correct redundant skin in multiple regions of the body. Abdominoplasty, body lift, brachioplasty, and torsoplastly are the individual procedures that can be combined to achieve full correction of the body.
Combination procedures are the natural way to simultaneously address the individual “problem areas” to achieve harmony for the body as a whole.
