Blepharoplasty Under Local Anesthesia: A Safe and Comfortable Option for Eye Rejuvenation
Dr. Sheffield, a lifetime member The American Board of Plastic Surgery® (ABPS®), is the preeminent facial plastic surgeon Santa Barbara and he and his staff offer a unique perspective to patients in a comfortable professional environment.
Blepharoplasty, a popular cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the eyes, can now be performed under local anesthesia. This technique provides patients with a safe and comfortable option for eyelid surgery, with a significantly reduced risk of complications compared to traditional general anesthesia.

Santa Barbara, CA – Blepharoplasty under local anesthesia involves numbing the eyelids with a small amount of local anesthetic. Patients remain awake throughout the procedure, but are given sedatives to help them relax. The surgeon can then make incisions in the eyelid to remove excess skin and fat, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Dr. Sheffield notes that the procedure’s benefits extend beyond just its safety and comfort. “By performing the procedure under local anesthesia, we are able to achieve a more natural-looking result. The patient can give real-time feedback on their experience, which helps us to fine-tune the outcome. Additionally, because the patient is not under general anesthesia, they experience fewer side effects such as nausea, dizziness, and confusion.”

Patients who undergo blepharoplasty Santa Barbara under local anesthesia can expect a shorter recovery time than those who undergo the procedure under general anesthesia. “Patients are usually able to return to work and their normal activities within a few days,” says Dr. Sheffield. “With general anesthesia, recovery can take up to a week or more.” He further adds.

The reduced recovery time is just one of the many reasons why patients are increasingly opting for blepharoplasty under local anesthesia. “Patients are drawn to this procedure because it is safe, comfortable, and produces excellent results,” says Dr. Sheffield. “Many patients who were hesitant to undergo eyelid surgery due to the risks of general anesthesia are now able to consider the procedure thanks to this new technique.” Says Dr. Sheffield.

Another advantage of blepharoplasty under local anesthesia is the cost savings for patients. “By eliminating the need for general anesthesia, we are able to reduce the overall cost of the procedure,” says Dr. Sheffield. He further adds “This makes it more accessible to a wider range of patients.”

Blepharoplasty under local anesthesia is a safe and effective option for patients seeking to rejuvenate their appearance. With a shorter recovery time, reduced risk of complications, and natural-looking results, this procedure is quickly becoming the preferred method for eyelid surgery.  If you are interested in learning more about blepharoplasty under local anesthesia, contact Dr. Robert W.
