Facial aging is a complex process that, more often than not, involves changes in the skin, soft tissue, muscles and fat all at once. For this reason, plastic surgeons may recommend patients undergo several facial rejuvenation procedures at once. A combination procedure can address a variety of facial aging concerns and offers several benefits.
In his many years of experience, Dr. Ghafouri of Arizona Oculoplastic Specialists has found that a comprehensive approach often yields the best facial rejuvenation results. Because the facial tissues are intertwined, changing or addressing one facial area can affect another area. For instance, if a patient enhances the upper facial area only, a contrast may be created and the results may call to attention the lines, wrinkles and other imperfections on the middle and lower facial areas. By addressing all areas of concern at once, a more natural-looking and balanced facial appearance is achieved.
Addressing one facial area at a time is more costly. Each time you undergo surgery, you will need to pay anesthesia fees, facility fees and other expenses. Combining treatments means you pay these expenses just once, which results in a lower overall cost. In addition, a combination procedure results in a shorter recovery time. Most patients lead very busy lives, and benefit from undergoing (and recovering from) surgery only once versus several times.
