Local anesthesia is requested by many patients who request plastic surgery. There are many advantages of local anesthesia over general anesthesia, but not all cosmetic procedures can be performed via local anesthesia. Fortunately, many facial plastic surgery procedures can be done in the office with only local anesthesia. The patient is awake, alert, and comfortable with this approach to plastic surgery. Upper eyelid surgery is often performed with local anesthesia.

This Washington DC area woman was considering plastic surgery of the face and eyes, but naturally apprehensive about anesthesia. She previously had facial surgery years ago and was determining whether to perform upper eyelid surgery or a brow lift. She consulted facial plastic surgeon Dr. Chaboki to review options.

We've previously reviewed brow vs. bleph in a blog post. Given the opportunity to have local anesthesia, in addition to a quicker recovery and downtime with upper eyelid surgery alone, this patient chose to have upper eyelid surgery. Upper eyelid surgery takes about an hour or less and uses dissolving sutures.

After photographs demonstrate a more "open" eye with a refreshed appearance. She still looks herself without looking different.

If you like the results you see here, request a consultation to learn more about how this procedure can help you achieve your ideal appearance. We encourage you to print your favorite photos and bring them with you during your consultation to help communicate your goals and expectations.

Keep in mind that each patient is unique and results may not occur for all patients. These photos are of an actual patient of our practice who has provided consent to display their pictures online.
