More Women Combining Procedures with Breast Augmentation and Undergoing “Mommy Makeovers” in Suburban Chicago
Dr. Sandeep Jejurikar is noticing a rise in the number of women combining procedures like tummy tucks and breast augmentation in the Chicago area.
Downers Grove, Illinois (PRWEB) August 20, 2011
Dr. Sandeep Jejurikar, a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic surgery such as body contouring, facial sculpting, and breast augmentation in the Chicago area, reports that more women are asking him about combining breast augmentation with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck.
“Breast augmentation has been one of the most popular procedures at my practice and across the country for many years,” says Dr. Jejurikar. “Increasingly, however, my patients are interested in discussing their options for combined procedures. “˜Mommy Makeovers’, which typically combine breast enhancement operations with body contouring procedures to address post-pregnancy concerns, are becoming increasingly popular.”
At his practice near Chicago, tummy tuck and breast augmentation are, according to Dr. Jejurikar, the two most commonly combined procedures for women. This combination can restore pre-pregnancy proportions and undo the anatomic consequences of childbirth which include diminished breast volume, breast sagging, excess abdominal fat and skin, and lax abdominal muscles.
“My patients like the idea of having only one surgery, rather than having to stage multiple procedures,” Dr. Jejurikar adds. “Studies indicate that these combined procedures, when performed by a board-certified surgeon, do not carry more risk than having the procedures performed separately. Patients also avoid multiple recovery periods, and in some cases even save money.”
In addition to tummy tuck, Dr. Jejurikar often combines liposuction or breast lift with a woman’s breast augmentation. “I choose to combine complementary procedures that don’t require a long operating room time, and that involve a similar recovery protocol,” says Dr. Jejurikar.
In addition to cosmetic surgery, Dr. Jejurikar performs many types of complex reconstructive procedures, such as breast reconstruction, scar revision, hand surgery, and microsurgical reconstruction. Non-surgical options, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers, are also available at his practice.
