Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Amy Bekanich joined us to talk all about facial cosmetic surgery, and her techniques for achieving beautiful, natural-looking results.

As a wife, mom of three, and owner of a thriving plastic surgery practice, Dr. Bekanich understands how valuable your time is. That’s why she employs special techniques to improve your recovery time when you have facial surgery, such as an eyelid lift, neck lift, or facelift. In this segment, Dr. Bekanich discusses using local anesthesia rather than general anesthesia for these procedures.

Being awake during surgery may sound daunting, but for some patients, local anesthesia can be a good choice when it comes to facial rejuvenation. This technique allows Dr. Bekanich to see how your face moves so she can provide you with natural looking improvement.

For some patients, this can mean putting less stress on the body than with general anesthesia. This can also mean lessening postoperative bruising and swelling, resulting in a shorter recovery time.

Dr. Bekanich’s practice, Austin Plastic Surgery Boutique, is committed to exceptional care, the highest standards of safety, and providing patients with results they’ll love. Learn more about Dr. Bekanich at!
