I would like to assure you that if there is no medical disorder which may interfere with your wound healing or impair blood coagulation or any predisposition to swelling, upper and/or lower eyelid Blepharoplasty + Mini or S-lift facelifts and even necklifting operations can be done in one operation (session). Under normal circumstances combination of these operations are not a new concept and I do all these operations under local anesthesia and intravenous sedation anesthesia in approx. at a maximum of 3,5 hours. The patient is most often asleep and even attend to conversation with me while I operate. Breifly, upper eyelids take 40 minutes, lower eyelids take 50 minute and facelifting takes 80-90 minutes for limited or less extended procedures in mild to medium deformities of the aging face.
However, I must add that these words and explanations mentioned above are not written to minimize the difficulty or craftmenship of these operations in the patient's eye and brain.
Note: a skin rejuvenation procedure can be done intraoperatively such as medium or light chemical peeling or fractional laser if the skin of the patient is "thick enough". For the very thin skinned patients I prefer to do this a few days later to overstep the oedema period in the following 48 hours after the operation.
