When it comes to facial plastic surgery, the big picture truly matters. Many people experience multiple signs of aging—heavy eyelids, drooping cheeks, saggy jawline—and want to rejuvenate their entire face all at once. There are many benefits to combining treatments and creating more flattering, comprehensive results. However, our plastic surgery patients from Kalispell, Missoula, and beyond often ask a common question: Is combining facial procedures actually safe?
The short answer is yes, it is perfectly safe to undergo more than one treatment at once. But this option should only be used for patients who would benefit from this approach.
Treating Different Concerns
Signs of aging can impact nearly every part of the face. The brows, cheeks, and neck can all sag, creating a droopy, square-jawed appearance. If you’re considering a facelift, our team will analyze your face and observe where the sagging is most prominent. If your cheeks have lost volume, you may benefit from just a facelift. If your brow has moved downward and your eyes appear smaller, you may want a brow lift or eyelid surgery.
If most of your sagging skin is on the lower half of your face, you may only need 1 targeted procedure. But if you struggle evenly across many areas, we often suggest a multifaceted approach.
Benefits of Combining Procedures
If you require more than one facial procedure, there are many reasons to have them together. Perks of undergoing a single combined procedure include:
- Saving money: Some fees are charged for each surgery, such as anesthesia and operating room costs. By bundling your procedures together, you only pay these fees one time and can save money in the process.
- Undergoing 1 recovery: Healing from surgery can affect your life physically, mentally, and financially. A single recovery period allows you to save time and PTO and poses less potential hardship.
- Seeing more extensive results: If you only address one area of your face, you may still be bothered by other problem areas. Combining facial procedures creates comprehensive results and helps you look naturally more youthful.
Is Facial Plastic Surgery Right for You?
Men and women in their 40s, 50s, and beyond can enjoy the anti-aging benefits of facial surgery. Ideal candidates are in overall good health but want to lift and tighten wrinkled, sagging skin. A single, longer procedure may not be recommended for older patients with preexisting health conditions. Our experienced plastic surgery team will walk you through your options and help you find the safest treatment plan for your needs.
