Lots of patients: Eyelids, upper and lower have been done with face lift on thousands of patients with nice results , if done by the right surgeon.

Common combo: This is a common combination and one successful plastic surgeon who shall remain unnamed used to call this the blue plate special. This is not to make light of a very serious procedure with risks that should be fully understood prior to surgery but it does underscore the popularity of the combination.

Common: The combination of facelift procedure with upper and/or lower eyelid procedures is extremely common.

Yes, very common: This combination of facial rejuvenating surgeries is very common and safe in the hands of a board certified plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon. Although the risks are somewhat different and additive since the procedures are inherently different, this combination can still be safe in most circumstances.

Yes: Those procedures are not uncommonly performed together to achieve periorbital and facial rejuvenation.

Absolutely: These procedures are commonly performed at the same time. Combining facelift with upper and lower eyelid surgery may slightly increase the overall time required for healing; however, both procedures are often needed to avoid imbalance in the appearance of the upper and lower face.

A common combination: Eyelid surgery (upper and lower) is very commonly performed with facelift. This is not necessary, however.

Facelift and Eyes: This is a very common combination and should not add significant risk to the procedure. For the patient, it is easier as there is only one recovery period.

Cosmetic surgery: These procedures are performed together every day. Be sure to have your face evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Facelift and Bleph: YES! This is the "norm" vs. a radical combination. Most of my patients have a laser vertical facelift and lower blepharoplasty. If they have extra skin of their upper eyelids, the may need an upper blepharoplasty and / or endoscopic brow lift.
