What are some of the benefits of a tummy tuck and breast augmentation combination surgery?
When two plastic surgery procedures are done simultaneously there are reduced costs to the patient in several ways. First, the surgeon has reduced costs associated with the surgical room and anesthesia so be sure to ask your surgeon to pass these savings on to you. Most surgeons DO offer package pricing when you receive two or more procedures. Second is the cost in medications and pre operative examinations. One surgery means having to purchase these items only once! Most importantly you also save time and the cost of not working. Recovery times vary but typically you will need to schedule a minimum of two weeks off from work and your normal household duties. Are these procedures right for me?
