What factors should I consider when having multiple plastic surgeries?
If you are considering multiple plastic surgeries, there are some factors you will need to think about in advance. In this video, plastic surgeon Anthony Youn, MD, explains what to keep in mind, as well as some benefits of this surgical option.
Instead of having two procedures spaced a month apart and taking, let's say, two months off of work, you can combine the procedures
and take maybe one month off of work. [MUSIC PLAYING]
If you're considering having multiple plastic surgeries and this lengthens the time you're in the operating room, it is very important for you to prevent or lower
the risk of blood clots. And the way to do that is to walk afterwards. Your doctor sometimes will prescribe mild blood thinners.
Some of these you actually may inject inside yourself at home. So be very cautious when you're combining surgeries.
When the surgery time is longer than even an hour or two, there is this risk of blood clots, which can be very dangerous.
So talk to your doctor. Ask him about the risks and make a prudent decision of what is best for yourself.

all in one setting is that you can actually shorten your overall recovery time. So instead of having two procedures spaced a month apart
and taking, let's say, two months off of work, you can combine the procedures and take maybe one month off of work. But you have to compare that, however,
to the potential risk of added complications of a longer anesthesia. So this is something to definitely
talk to your plastic surgeon about and maybe also with your internist or your family practice doctor, as well.
