Share Article

Plastic surgeon Dr. James Romanelli says that many of his patients choosing body contouring surgeries like liposuction are also having facial enhancement and skin tightening procedures such as face lifts and eyelid surgery.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Romanelli of ( Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery finds that people who have liposuction frequently elect additional skin-tightening procedures and facial rejuvenation treatments to receive head-to-toe results. Two of the most popular adjoining surgeries he performs include face lift and eyelid surgery on Long Island.

"Liposuction is extremely effective for removing unwanted fat, but some patients also have excess skin," explains Dr. Romanelli. "Sculpting techniques can help redefine facial and body contours and smooth out those minor imperfections."

Dr. Romanelli can perform some of the lifting and firming techniques used in addition to liposuction on Long Island simultaneously. He often uses a combination of tightening procedures to help his patients achieve the most aesthetic overall results.

"People choose plastic surgery because they want to look their best," says Dr. Romanelli. "I often help my patients address several concerns with multiple treatments."

Dr. Romanelli frequently performs abdominoplasty, also known as a "tummy tuck," at the same time as liposuction for people who want to remove unwanted fat and flatten their abdomen. He also often combines eyelid surgery and a face lift on Long Island for a complete facial rejuvenation. Although undergoing two or more treatments during the same surgery can sometimes increase the length of the recovery period, the results are more dramatic, notes Dr. Romanelli.

"When patients want to truly transform their appearance, it's often much more practical to do multiple surgeries simultaneously," Dr. Romanelli says. "However, some individuals are better candidates for this plan than others. It depends on the procedures and the patient's general health."

Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery also offers medical spa services in addition to plastic surgery for people who prefer less invasive options, or who want to maintain their results from surgery. Injectable treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM can help improve the look of lines and wrinkles after eyelid surgery, and laser skin resurfacing can often improve the quality of the skin after a face lift.

"Today, beauty can be treated in a more individualized, comprehensive manner than ever before," Dr. Romanelli says. "The variety of surgical and nonsurgical options available, combined with the new advances in technology, makes it much easier to obtain your perfect look."
