Dr. Sheffield uses local and tumescent anesthesia for facial procedures such as facelift, short scar facelift, browlift, rhinoplasty Santa Barbara, liposuctions and eyelid surgery. After 40 years pf performing plastic surgery, Dr. Sheffield believes this process to be one of the safest methods to carry out facial procedures. This facial procedure is favored over general anesthesia because the patients need not be kept on the ventilator or kept under for an extended period of time. This local anesthesia technique requires fewer medications, and its effects dissipate once the procedure is concluded without lasting anestheic effects. There is no need for the patient to stay at the clinic for extended recovery, and with little rest, the patients can resume their work.
According to Dr. Robert W. Sheffield, head of Robert W. Sheffield, MD Plastic Surgery, “Our clinic has made a great shift from the complete body procedures and now providing specialized facial surgery. We provide facial rejuvenation treatments like short scar facelift surgery, facelift, neck lift, brow lift surgery, liposuction, rhinoplasty, and eyelid surgery. At Robert W. Sheffield, MD Plastic Surgery, we use less-invasive techniques for this procedure. People prefer the local anesthesia procedure because it is minimally-invasive, cost-effective, and provides quick recovery. Moreover, there is no need for an anesthesiologist as the whole process is done at our office.”
The whole process of facial rejuvenation is done while the patient is awake, and a calculated amount of lidocaine solution is injected into the patient’s skin. The area is numbed to provide maximum relief while the surgery takes place. At Robert W. Sheffield, MD Plastic Surgery, the goal is provide natural-looking results utilizing a customized treatment plan.
“We use the local anesthesia technique to make the process less invasive, complicated, and much safer for our patients. Before conducting any facial surgery, we take the patients height, weight, and check their overall health status. We also check if they are allergic to any form of anesthesia before starting with the facial procedure,” he further added.
Dr. Sheffield and his staff strive to make sure that patient experience is high and the patients are satisfied with their results, while remaining completely relaxed and calm during the whole procedure in a safe environment.
