Plastic surgeon, anesthesia provider, duration of surgery, surgery facility all important considerations.

In brief: Short

Short answer---yes.
Most of my patients have more than one procedure when it comes to facial rejuvenation. I commonly perform a browlift, upper and lower blepharoplasty, midfacelift and facelift all in one 4-5 hour operation. Of course, not everyone needs all of this but many people combine 2-3 procedures safely. Good luck.

Quite often cosmetic procedures are combined.
Combining procedures allows one recovery period. However long procedures have potentially more risks. A detailed discussion with you plastic surgeon concerning combined procedures should help you understand the pros and cons of combined surgery.
