Surgeons must understand the crucial difference between their patients. A patient who seeks physical change to improve self-esteem would be the appropriate candidate, but someone who has body issues stemming out from emotional/psychological disorders are not. However, when either kind of patient wants to have many cosmetic surgeries performed at once, it’s not necessary a good idea.
Multiple surgeries should only be considered if they tend to go hand and hand. For example, a chin augmentation with a nose job is a common procedure. Also, little liposuction goes naturally with a tummy tuck to finish the procedure. However, if other surgeries are done such as, a breast implant with liposuction and a facelift all at the same time/day, that might cause some serious disruptions or side effects. This all depends on the length of time required. A surgeon must know the amount of anesthesia that will be given, any risks for blood loss, and the exposure of the body during the procedure to the air and potential airborne contaminants, such as bacteria.
Patients seeking a perfect body without having realistic expectations will not be as satisfied compared to patients that want to improve their appearance and self-esteem. Talk to your surgeon about performing multiple procedures if desired, as well as any health problems that might interfere.
