Have you ever thought about having a facelift, only to be put off by the thought of being under a general anaesthetic? A local anaesthetic concept facelift offers all the benefits of the traditional facelift, but the procedure can be performed using only a local anaesthetic.

What does a local anaesthetic concept facelift involve?
Concept facelifts are unique in the fact that they deliver all the results and benefits of a traditional facelift but use a smaller scar technique and reduce the amount of recovery time required. They also result in a more natural look than those that are achieved by some traditional facelifts.
At the start of the procedure, fluid is injected to numb the face. An incision will be made in front of the ear to allow the surgeon to separate the skin and muscle, lifting the tissue then replacing it in a more youthful position. Any excess skin is then trimmed before the skin is stitched back into position.
A local anaesthetic concept facelift usually takes 2-3 hours to perform, yet lasts as long as a traditional facelift.
There are always risks associated with surgical procedures. Some of the specific complications include:
As general anaesthetic is not required, you are free to go home once the procedure is complete, avoiding the need for a hospital stay. Minimal swelling and bruising should also be expected initially.
The cost of a local anaesthetic concept facelift is much lower than that of a traditional facelift. Costs will be fully discussed during your initial consultation.
