Can I have several procedures performed simultaneously?
It is a relatively common practice for a plastic surgeon to perform multiple procedures during one operation. This allows your problems to be treated in the one recovery time. In addition, having several procedures done simultaneously saves you the expense of paying for another admission. However, there are limits and having too much done at one time could lead to unnecessary complications. The decision to have multiple procedures done depends on which procedures are being done, the extent of surgery, the operating time, and your age/health. Ultimately, the surgeon decides whether or not it is appropriate to include more than one procedure in your operation.
