Facial Procedures Performed » Combination Facial Procedures

There are a couple of reasons to combine facial procedures.  First of all, combining procedure saves a little bit of money and an anesthetic but the most important reason is the second reason.   It is important to maintain harmony in the face.  For example, if a brow lift is done but the aging of the lower face is not addressed, the face can look unbalanced and odd.   Also, combining procedures consolidates recovery time.  It’s much more time efficient to have a single recovery than two or three.

That being said, combining facial procedures requires careful planning and judgment.  In general, I like to keep the “skin to skin” time of surgery under 6 hours.  It’s just not smart to subject a patient (not to mention the surgeon, the nurses and anesthesiologist) to a much longer operation.  I have a lot of stamina but after about 6 hours of very demanding operating, I start getting fatigued.

I can usually do full facial rejuvenation – face, brow, neck and eyelids in a single setting if I sew really, really fast.  Just don’t ask me to throw in a tummy tuck “while we are there!”

So if a patient shows up with a laundry list of desired procedures, I will help them determine where to start and what procedures can be done safely during the same setting.  Don’t ask me to “push the envelope.”  If it’s out of my comfort zone, it’s probably out of your safety zone.
