This allows him to assist patients with procedures in selected patients under effective oral sedation, topical or local anesthesia. He has no need for general anesthesia in his practice. During a consultation the patient is fully informed of all available procedures and a recommendation is given. There is a genuine interest here to guide the patent to achieve his or her goals. Whether the procedure is a Botox injection, laser treatments, photo facial treatments or an upper eyelid procedure, these procedures allow for a large degree of safety and minimal risk. All procedures can be performed under topical or local anesthesia. What sets this practice apart is the focus on the least invasive procedure(s) which achieve quality results, minimal down time and the avoidance of an operated look. As part of the care Dr. Sheffield makes an added effort to educate the patient on their concerns.

At SB Aesthetics practice emphasis is facial rejuvenation using non-surgical and less invasive techniques such as rhinoplasty, facelift, neck lift along with eyelid and brow surgery. For example, one of the aspects of aging that detracts from facial aesthetics as we age is a tired look which is often caused by excessive skin of the upper eyelid and under eye hollows. There is also puffiness of the eyelid which is caused by bulging of the small fat pads of the lower eyelid. Additionally, crow’s feet lines contribute to the aging look. On occasion the brow position needs to be elevated to achieve the ideal aesthetic result. This can be done under local anesthesia as well. Additionally, aging factors such as jowls and sagging skin of the face can be improved through the short scar facelift procedure. Using a combination of non-surgical approaches and minimally invasive techniques to the upper and lower eyelid, brow and lower region of the face moves the patient to a more pleasing balanced aesthetic result and a shorter recovery time. Through his vast experience, Dr. Sheffield has many ways to address patient concerns about their appearance.
