Where is the surgery performed and how long does it take?
Facelift surgery is performed in the office as an outpatient procedure. Operating time correlates with the severity of the aging changes. A facelift alone usually requires about 3 hours. Upper and lower eyelid surgery adds another hour and a half. Dermabrasion, chemical peels, and other ancillary procedures do not add much time. All surgery is performed entirely by Dr. Hidalgo.
