Body contouring procedures may involve fatty removal through liposuction or direct surgical excision, depending upon the patient’s specific needs. Many times a combination of these procedures is necessary to achieve their goals. There are situations where individuals may be interested in improving several areas (abdomen and thighs for example). If our plastic surgeons—Dr. John Sarbak or Dr. Amy Simon—think that several procedures can be combined safely, they will certainly consider that option. However, they will also tell patients when they think it is best to schedule stages (separate your surgeries into two or more operative sessions). There are also situations (such as large excisions or associated medical conditions) where your plastic surgeon may recommend that procedures be performed in a hospital setting. Safety is always of vital importance.
