Can a facelift and rhinoplasty be performed at the same time?

Many of my Houston facelift and rhinoplasty patients are interested in having multiple procedures in order to have one recovery and one general anesthetic. Some of my Houston facelift patients are interested in having rhinoplasty during their facelift or neck lift procedure. Although these are both complex and combined can last several hours, it is possible to perform these procedures at the same time. It is important that patients are medically evaluated and cleared by their internist to assure their heart and lungs can tolerate a longer surgery and general anesthesia. Medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, or pulmonary conditions are likely contraindications for prolonged cosmetic elective procedures such as a facelift combined with rhinoplasty.
