Rise in enquiries for combination facelift and eyelid surgery
A cosmetic surgeon in America has reported an increase in enquiries from people looking for combined eyelid and facelift surgery. Dr Adam Stein, a plastic surgeon from Raleigh, USA, said: “More patients are interested in combining eyelid surgery with a facelift at my practice."When I talk with them, they are delighted by the fact that in most cases, I can perform this combined procedure without increasing their recovery time. This is ideal for people with busy lifestyles who want to correct wrinkles and sagging facial skin while rejuvenating the area around the eyes.” Dr Klein is not the first to notice a surge in patients looking to combine surgical procedures in order to look their best while having the least amount of time off to recover. The ‘mummy makeover’ combines procedures such as liposuction, breast enlargement and vaginal tightening and reshaping, and is so called because the patients are usually mothers looking to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies. Combined procedures are becoming more and more popular as people’s lives get increasingly busy and competitive. This, along with having surgery much later in life, is the new trend for the industry.
