Is it possible to drive myself home after the facelift surgery?

Question:
I am 68-years-old and I am seeking a facelift procedure, but I live alone and my family lives at least an hour away from me. Is it possible to drive myself home after the facelift surgery?

Answer:
It would not be appropriate for you to drive yourself home after a facelift procedure.  Typically, anesthesia is used for this kind of surgery, and it would be unsafe to operate a vehicle afterward.  You will also likely have large bandages around your head that would hinder your driving capabilities.
