Can a facelift be done under local anesthesia ?

It is possible to do a facelift under local anesthesia. For most patients, the cosmetic surgery is more comfortable and can be done more efficiently with the addition of intra-venous sedation or general anesthesia. We use certified anesthesia providers to enhance patient safety during facelift surgery. In my Seattle area plastic surgery practice, it takes me about three hours to do a face and neck lift. Other procedures, such as eyelid lift, brow lift, fat grafting and rhinoplasty can be added to a facelift to enhance the overall result.
