I am considering getting a few surgerys roughly around 7-9 and wondered what surgerys could I get done at the same time so there is a facelift, rhinoplasty, cheek implants, jaw augmentation, ear pinning, chin implant, and neck lipo and ordinary lipo of the stomach, flanks, thighs. also some buttoc implants. Thankyou could someone please state what surgerys could be done at the same time for a just the one healing time, or other suggestions to my considered surgerys. Many thanks
I have been wanting a few surgeries for a while, could I get any done at the same time?

There is no way to combine all of these surgeries together. You will need to decide which areas bother you the most and start there. A rhinoplasty is performed alone. But you could combine the facelift with neck liposuction or the body liposuction procedures. My best advice would be for you to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine what it is you really need to achieve your results because I doubt that it's all of these procedures.
Surgeries done at the same time
Unfortunately, you cannot perform all these surgeries in just one day. Your facial surgeries, namely the rhinoplasty, the neck lift surgery, the ear pinning,and your face lift. Regarding the liposuction it is much better to have these operations before your face surgeries. The number of surgeries you need depends on your anatomical features and your over all health, since having more than one operation would mean longer healing time.
Combination Surgery Case
I often times recommend combining multiple procedures together. We do a very comprehensive preop appointment. It is important to myself & my surgical team to make sure that each patient's health history is fully investigated and to make sure their personal health is looked at before proceeding with surgery.
Once the comprehensive preop takes place and clearances are obtained (if necessary) we then will proceed with he planned surgery.
i believe in one surgery and one recovery. i feel that based on the health history of the individual and the length of the case, these combination cases are well tolerated.
Many procedures require ancillary procedures (such as a Face Lift with Eyelids along with a Forehead Lift) or a mommy makeover (an Abdominoplasty with Liposuction & breast Augmentation or Breast Lift) or Body Contouring and Fat Transfer to the Buttocks. So to combine the procedures you are interested in, is not uncommon.

Face lift rhinoplasty, and much more - all at one time?
- I am so sorry but this is far too much surgery to do at one time.
- What can be done also depends on your weight - surgery on thin women takes much less time than surgery on heavier women.
- At the most, the face lift and neck lift. rhinoplasty and cheek, chin, jaw implants might be done at one time.
How To Be Smart About Your Facelift
Multiple surgeries at same time
I usually tell patients multiple procedures can be done at one time, but surgery time should be limited to 5-6 hours/surgery.Dr. Luong
Quite the list
So it is safe to do certain procedures in groups. For example a range of facial procedures can be combined with some trunk procedures. My concern is the range of purely facial procedures you are considering is so radical that not only will you look extremely different, but that some of those are not complimentary. For example, face lift, cheek implants and jaw augmentation and chin implants. These would rarely be combined as they often aim to produce the same effect. In terms of the body contouring, this is more synergistic but again, alot to change in a single procedure. I think you should spend a long time with a plastic surgeon discussing what you want and what is possible for you. Hope that helpsAdam Goodwin
