Everything You Need To Know About Pairing Plastic Surgeries

In the chaotic lives we live, not everyone has time to set aside the time to recover from cosmetic surgery. Since time is everything, it is sometimes in the best interest to pair surgeries together. We will discuss the most popular combinations surgeries and the benefits of pairing plastic surgeries together.  

Is It Safe To Pair Cosmetic Surgeries Together?

Yes, pairing the right plastic surgery procedures together can be safe, and help reduce the overall recovery time compared to receiving them at separate times. Our board-certified plastic surgeons will recommend the best treatment options for you, with your safety being a top priority.  

How Many Cosmetic Surgeries Should I Receive At Once?

If you are looking to get more than one procedure done, it depends on the type of surgery, where on your body it is taking place, and the amount of time the entire surgery will take. Again, our surgeons will recommend the best treatment options and what realistically can be done in a single surgery. In some cases, you may need to prioritize the procedures you’d like to have done first. If you find that you still would have more procedures done after the initial surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeons can recommend a time when you can look to schedule a second surgery. 

Benefits Of Pairing Surgeries

  • Cost Effectiveness 

Depending on the procedures that you’d like to have done, it can be more cost-effective to have multiple surgeries at the same time, rather than undergoing two separate surgeries. 

  • Convenience  

Having multiple procedures done at the same time means you’ll only have to undergo the surgery and recovery process, including downtime and post-op checkups, once. 

  • Dramatic Results in Shorten Time 

After receiving two surgeries at the same time, you will be able to “wow” the people in your life and avoid having to deal with extended waiting time between surgeries. Receiving the surgeries can boost self-esteem and confidence, allowing you to enjoy you enhanced appearance sooner  

Common Surgeries That Get Paired Together

Certain plastic surgeries are more common for both safety during the surgery and recovery. These surgeries below work well together because they complement each other nicely and are done in the same area. For example, the tummy tuck and liposuction procedures gives you a flatter tummy and removes fat in the hips and waist area. Common pairings in plastic surgery include: 

Success Story: Alley Faith

If you listen to 103.7 KissFM Milwaukee in the morning, then you know Alley Faith, and the show she co-hosts “Alley and DZ”. Alley came to Illume last year after she lost 150 pounds, and decided she needed to undergo skin removal surgery. The procedures that Alley received were Arm Lift, Breast Augmentation, and Tummy Tuck.  

The combination of Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck is commonly called a mommy makeover. Alley said this about her time with Illume “I still have these surreal moments where I can’t believe that I had skin removal surgery. It continues to feel like a dream sometimes”. If you want to learn more, Alley gave a behind the access to her journey. 


As with any plastic surgery, there are risks. Multiple procedures performed at the same time extends the duration of surgery and prolongs the period you’re under anesthesia. This may pose higher safety risks for some patients. At Illume, patient safety is a top priority for our board-certified plastic surgeons.
