A new study has found that there are no bigger risks of complications for women who choose a package of plastic surgery treatments in order to tackle body problems after giving birth than people who undergo individual procedures.
Common procedures among young mums who want to recover the bodies they had before having a baby are tummy tuck, breast lift and liposuction.
A survey of 268 mums who have had cosmetic surgery after giving birth was carried out by Researchers at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates in Los Angeles. The researchers concluded that the amount of complications for undergoing several procedures at once was very close to that of individual treatments.
Dr W Grant Stevens, leading researcher of the study, cosmetic surgeon and founder of Marina Plastic Surgery, commented: “Mommy makeovers have a similar safety profile to individually-performed procedures while offering distinct advantages versus multiple surgical sessions.
“A tummy tuck, breast lift and liposuction are all common procedures for mothers looking to recreate their ‘pre-baby’ body. For a woman who wants to have plastic surgery after pregnancy, combining the procedures certainly makes a lot of sense.”
Moreover, based on the findings of the research, Dr Stevens concluded that combining cosmetic treatments procedures to be performed in one prcedure is unlikely to be any more risky for the patient and is usually cheaper and more convenient than having individual operations.
