How Often Can You Get Plastic Surgery?

Getting cosmetic plastic surgery is a transformational, personal decision that can change the way people see themselves and how the world sees them

According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery statistics, people between the ages of 35 and 50 had the most procedures performed in 2016, accounting for nearly 39% of the total ratio of age categories. That age range continues to grow younger as the cosmetic surgical procedures become increasingly publicly acceptable. The decision to get surgery is a hard choice. However, cosmetic enhancement procedures make positive changes in the corrections that people have been longing to achieve.

Rhinoplasty procedures dominate the facial cosmetic surgery category as one of the most commonly requested procedures of all time. Online platforms like social media have given rise to the growing idolization of Brazilian butt lift procedures, which people are seeking in an effort to have the famous “Kardashian curves”. With all the commotion of social media-driven body types with frequently photoshopped proportions, some people may be wondering, How often can you get plastic surgery? And is it safe to get multiple surgical procedures?

Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly requested procedure of all time


Plastic surgery is becoming increasingly safe with innovative technology and medical devices that are developed to deliver treatments more efficiently and effectively. The advancement of safety measures enables higher satisfaction rates amongst patients and their practitioners in terms of the results that they are able to produce.

The risks associated with surgery are higher than non-surgical treatments. However, the degree of damage from an inadequately executed procedure doesn’t disqualify one type over the other. This is because complications with undesirable results can impact someone negatively in the same context, regardless of the method of treatment. Unwanted results from surgical or non-surgical results can leave patients with lower esteem and insecurities, higher financial costs to rectify the complications (in severe cases), more risk of further damage to the anatomy that was operated on, along with a host of other unpleasant side effects/symptoms. Combining multiple surgical procedures also increases recovery risks for patients, as extensive amounts of surgery can be tremendously challenging for people with compromised health conditions. It is not uncommon, however, to receive more than one procedure if you are a suitable candidate.

Your plastic surgeon should provide in-depth information about the associated risks with your specific surgical agenda.

The frequency of getting plastic surgery is best determined on an individual basis at the discretion of your performing plastic surgeon


Most surgical procedures require at least 6 to 12 months of extended recovery time before surgeons can go back to operate in the SAME area for revision surgeries.

For different areas of the face or body, surgical procedures can be completed at closer intervals. However, the use of anaesthesia for surgery can increase your risks of complications during surgery if you are a smoker, obese, if you consume excessive amounts of alcohol or non-prescription drugs or if you have health conditions such as diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, or high blood pressure.

Other conditions that may affect the amount of repeated surgical procedures are medications that can potentially increase bleeding or medical conditions involving your heart, lungs, or kidneys. Disclosing all medications and medical history with your plastic surgeon is the number one way that patients can significantly decrease the risks associated with the frequency of their surgical procedure(s).
