Facelifts with Local Anesthesia

westlake dermatology

It’s a deeply involved procedure, but new innovations in face lifts are proving to make the process itself and the recovery from it easier on patients.  Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Minas Constantinedes of Westlake Dermatology talked to Amanda about the advantages of local anesthesia during a face lift, including less bleeding and bruising. Facial plastic surgery procedures, including facelift, can be performed using just local anesthesia.  Although general anesthesia is very safe, it does have some risk and side effects.  Local anesthesia is an attractive option because recovery is very fast, there is no post-procedure hangover, and it does not require an anesthesiologist, so there is a significant cost savings for the patient. Westlake Dermatology has seven locations in and around Austin and they offer monthly specials. You can see more about their services and procedures at westlakedermatology.com.
