Can You Really Use Just Local Anesthesia For a Facelift?

Dr. Sheffield pioneers his technique mainly in response to patients wanting not to have the health risk associated with general anesthetic. This was wanted not only for health aspects but also for the quick recovery. Always consult your Santa Barbara plastic surgeon to find out which anesthesia and procedure type is right for you as well to find out realistic outcomes you can achieve.

In the office, we use tumescent anesthesia for the short scar facelift. This technique uses a high volume of diluted lidocaine to target specific injected areas. This allows for quite a reduced recovery time period and also a reduction of any swelling or potential bruising. Patients can return to their normal lives within a week.
