IntroductionPlastic surgery is a very vast field. There are numerous procedures that can effectively address specific aesthetic flaws. The problem is that there are times when we face multiple body issues. As of the moment, there doesn’t exist a plastic surgery procedure that can treat all of your problems in one go. Patients facing multiple aesthetic problems are therefore required to undergo more than one procedure.In most cases, one or more procedures are performed at the same time to resolve your major aesthetic problems. However, depending on your desires, pain tolerance level, stamina, health, and other factors, your plastic surgeon may recommend you to have the necessary procedures at different times. You may be told to keep a gap of a few months or years between two procedures.Two of the common problems faced by women are loose, saggy abdomen and smaller, flatter, or saggy butts. These problems go hand in hand in majority cases. In order to overcome both of these aesthetic flaws, your doctor may recommend abdominoplasty and butt augmentation. Depending on your doctor’s best judgment and your ability to endure discomfort during the recovery period, your surgeon may advise you to either undergo both procedures at once or at different times. AbdominoplastyOne of the common goals of women is to have a flatter and well-toned tummy. Many women struggle to achieve that via diet and exercise, and in most cases, these methods fail to deliver the desired outcomes. Women mostly get excess skin and fat in the abdomen as a result of pregnancies, weight fluctuations, gravity, and aging. In some cases, genetic factors, illnesses, and past treatments may also lead to the development of sagginess in the abdomen.Abdominoplasty is a popular plastic surgery procedure for contouring the abdomen. The surgery effectively treats the aesthetic flaws from the abdomen by removing the excess skin and fat, besides repairing the abdominal wall muscle. Your abdomen will become firmer, thinner, and toned after the surgery. The removal of saggy skin from the lower and middle tummy will decrease the size of your waist, in addition to tightening the muscle.What you achieve through tummy tuck surgery will have effects on your overall physique and body profile. The abdomen is an important part of your overall aesthetic appearance, and improvement in the appearance of the abdomen will translate into the enhancement of your overall look. Your body will appear toned, sculpted, and curvier after the surgery.Abdominoplasty can be conducted under general anesthesia or IV sedation; the choice depends on your surgeon’s preference and your decision. In most cases, it is an outpatient procedure. You may be able to go home a few hours after the surgery if your health remains stable.A complete tummy tuck needs a horizontal incision running between your navel and pubic hairline. Your surgeon will determine the size and shape of the incisions, depending on the amount of skin and fat that needs to be removed. After lifting the skin, the surgeon will then repair the impaired abdominal wall muscles.Another incision may be placed on the belly button to remove the excess skin from the upper region of the abdomen. The skin in the upper area of the abdomen will be draped, and the excess skin and fat will be removed. The skin left behind will be closed and sutured. Also, a new opening will be created for the navel, and the belly button will be passed and positioned via the opening. Buttock augmentationThere are few lucky women who have naturally large, shapely, and voluptuous behinds. Majority of women have smaller, flatter, square, saggy, or asymmetrical butts. Since having a bigger, toned, shapely butt is a trend of the time, most women feel embarrassed and experience lower self-esteem due to the aesthetic flaws in their buttocks.The good news is that the buttock augmentation procedure addresses these aesthetic problems. Butt augmentation is an effective and popular surgery to make the butt fuller, contoured, curvy, and voluminous. After the procedure, the patient’s butt will increase in size and enhance in shape, which will give a boost to her self-confidence and overall aesthetic appearance.There are two options when it comes to augmenting the buttocks: implants and fat grafting. The buttock implant surgery involves the use of highly durable, semi-solid silicone implants. The implants are placed inside the buttocks through incisions. Your buttocks will appear fuller, larger, shapely, and sexy after an implant surgery.On the other hand, the fat transfer procedure uses your own body fat to augment your butt. It involves the use of liposuction to remove the excess fat from localized areas of your body. The fat is then injected inside the butt via special needles. After the surgery, your butt will appear contoured, large, and voluptuous. Should abdominoplasty and butt augmentation be combined?Undergoing abdominoplasty and butt augmentation at the same time is not a good idea. When both of the surgeries are performed at the same time, you won’t be allowed to sit. You also won’t be allowed to sleep or rest on both your back and front during the recovery period, which can be 3-4 weeks. It will be physically demanding with more complications. ConclusionAbdominoplasty and buttock augmentation are popular plastic surgery procedures. Abdominoplasty will treat the aesthetic flaws of the abdomen by removing saggy skin and excess fat, whereas the butt augmentation will make your butt fuller, large and shapely by using silicone implants or your own body fat. With the willingness of the patient, both procedures may be performed at the same time if the plastic surgeon thinks the risks and possible complications can be contained.
