Mini facelift

Can a mini facelift be done under local anesthesia?

The short answer is "yes." In my practice, full facelift (cheek, jowls, and neck) is regularly performed under general anesthesia. Our mini facelift is designed to correct sagging in the cheek and jowl, and is commonly done under local anesthesia, usually with supplemental oral medications. Our patients are offered the choice of anesthesia and oral medications.

The consultation with your chosen surgeon is the time to discuss your concerns and desires, to have him or her evaluate your anatomy and suggest the most effective way to accomplish your goals. When a mini facelift is best, local anesthesia can be an excellent choice. Best Wishes.

Yes it can, but ultimately you will need a consultation to address your goals. Sometimes the term mini face lift is applied loosely and the patient will need a full facelift.

A mini face lift and even a brow lift, face and neck lift can be performed under local anesthesia and sedation, the ideal patient for this particular type of anesthesia, will be one, with a good health and a normal blood pressure.

Yes, a mini facelift, or even a full facelift, can be done under local anesthesia. However, be careful what you wish for. Most facelifts, especially mini ones, done under local anesthesia do not give full correction of the problem and do not last very long. Many also lead to poor or visible scars as, instead of placing the pull on the deep tissues which requires more undermining, tension is placed on the skin. Make sure you choose someone who is an expert in facial rejuvenation and can show pictures of excellent, long lasting results with the procedure you will have.
