In brief: Why?

You probably can, but why? Best not to combine elective surgery with medically necessary surgery.
What if the rare circumstance arises where 1 complicates the other? If the concern is the downtime or 2nd anesthesia, then i'm not sure it warrents the risk of doing the 2 together. Hope this helps!

In brief: Multiple surgeries

Dear lacey, i would caution against that because of the time and the bacteria from the 2 different wounds.
Also, if you are only 25, it is probably too early to get a facelift. It is best to separate the surgeries. Best, nima shemirani.

In brief: Facelift

Procedures can be combined under one anesthesia but whether they will be performed simultaneously is dependent on your surgeons.
Have your face evaluated by a board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon.

In brief: It's possible

Yes, this is possible and although it may sound convenient, there are several reasons that it may not be a good idea.
This will involve prolonged anesthetic time and following a pelvic procedure. You are placing yourself at a higher risk for blood clots. Your ability to "rest" your face and perform wound care may be inhibited by the aftercare and recovery of the pelvic procedure.

In brief: Yes

Sure but it requires your gynecologist and plastic surgeon to coordinate their schedules.
This is a good way to cut down on cost for anesthesia. Your insurance will likely cover the anesthesia provided for the hysterectomy cutting down your out of pocket cost for the elective face lift.
