The type of anesthesia recommended by your surgeon will be based on
many factors including the type of facelift procedure you are undergoing,
the amount of time needed for your surgery, if you are combining your
facelift with any other procedures, and your health status.
General anesthesia means you will receive medication which makes you
fall completely asleep and then a breathing tube will be inserted to help
you breathe during the procedure. General anesthesia is usually carried
out in a surgery center or hospital. Both IV sedation and general anesthesia
allow for a pain-free facelift experience, and patients usually remember
little to none of the procedure itself.
