How Do Plastic Surgeons Combine Treatments For Full Body Contouring Results?

One of the most common procedures offered by plastic surgeons are Mommy Makeovers. A mommy makeover isn’t actually a singular surgical process. Instead, it is a label that speaks to something that plastic surgeons like our board-certified surgeons here at Cape & Islands Plastic Surgery do all the time: personalized treatment plans. The marks of a great plastic surgeon’s office are their experience, treatment options, and their ability to create customized treatment plans for the best results. If you are looking for a full body transformation, the best solution is likely not a singular body contouring procedure, but a combination of treatments then when used together create the most dramatic results. In this article, we will discuss different ways body contouring treatments can be combined. If you are in the Cape Cod or South Shore area and are interested in learning how our team can help you achieve your body transformation goals, please contact us, or click below to learn more about our variety of body contouring treatments. 

Non-Surgical vs Surgical Body Contouring Treatments

There are a variety of surgical and non-surgical body contouring treatments that we would recommend to our patients depending on their goals. In many situations those treatments might be combined for a variety of reasons. With many non-surgical treatments, combinations are often recommended because the treatments have specific results, and combining them can help achieve multiple effects. For example, jaw-line injectables like Kybella can be combined with CoolSculpting to help handle a double chin. Surgical procedures are also often combined either because they are done in different areas of the body (like combining a tummy tuck with a breast augmentation for a mommy makeover) or because you can more dramatic results when combining two surgical treatments (like an abdominoplasty and abdominal liposuction). 

Non-Surgical Treatments For Body Contouring


When we think about injectables we might think about dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox Cosmetic. While those injectables are usually used for anti-aging treatments, there are injectables like Kybella that are formulated for helping shape the face and neck. Kybella works by targeting fat cells’ membranes which liquifies the cells and allows the body to absorb them.


Morpheus8 is frequently combined with surgical or non-surgical body contouring plans. This is because Morpheus8 helps tighten loose skin after weight loss. Morpheus8 is frequently combined with CoolSculpting or with BodyTite or with other body contouring treatments. Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency (RF) technology with microneedling to tighten the skin. 


CoolSculpting is one of the most popular non-surgical body contouring treatments. CoolSculpting works by freezing the fat cells underneath the skin. It can target specific treatment areas and therefore provide contouring in specific areas of the body the patient has concerns about. 


EMSCULPT is frequently combined with other treatments like CoolSculpting. EMSCULPT uses HIFEM technology to cause muscle groups to flex and release rapidly over a short period of time. It would be similar to doing hundreds or thousands of reps of a single exercise. This leads to toned and stronger muscles.

Surgical or Minimally Invasive Body Contouring Treatments

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation treatments are frequently combined with other surgical or even non-surgical procedures as part of a body contouring treatment plan. Breast lifts as well as breast implants are often done as part of mommy makeover body contouring plans, but are also done for women interested in a full body transformation. 


Liposuction is a surgical procedure where fat is removed from a specific area of the body. As such, it can be done in many different areas of the body including around the legs, hips, waist. abdomen, or other areas. Liposuction is frequently combined with abdominoplasty for more dramatic results. 


Abdominoplasty is colloquially known as a tummy tuck surgery. A tummy tuck removes both excess skin and fat from the abdomen. The abdomen is also tightened and the skin is repositioned to create a more toned look. As we mentioned this is often combined with liposuction. 

BodyTite & FaceTite

BodyTite & Facetite are minimally invasive alternatives to traditional liposuction. Unlike traditional liposuction, these treatments can be done in the office under local anesthesia. The applicator is placed underneath the skin and used to destroy fat cells. The technology both liquefies the fat cells and tightens the skin.
