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

In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.

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

In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
