Did you know that you can have surgical procedures such as an eyelift, rhinoplasty and even a facelift under local anesthesia? It is safer, reduces recovery time and is more comfortable for the patient.

General anesthesia, which is how most surgical procedures are performed, requires for the whole body to go to sleep. This takes a toll on the body, requiring more downtime and medication. Local anesthesia causes absence of pain in the area being treated, but the patient is awake and continues to have sensation throughout the rest of their body. They are responsive throughout the procedure, which also makes it safer.

Due to medical advancements and Dr. Lee’s expertise in facial plastic surgery, he is able to offer several surgical procedures under local anesthesia, including his often sought after FACEology LIFT. An added benefit of the reduced downtime is quickened healing process. In most cases, swelling is reduced, which can help the results appear faster as well.

Another benefit of undergoing surgery under local anesthesia is reduced cost. The absence of hospital costs and general anesthesia allows for a significant reduction in the cost of the procedure, making it a much more affordable option than in previous times.

Dr. Raymond Lee is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon with expertise in facial rejuvenation under local anesthesia. He has been practicing in Orange County for the past 12 years, and has performed over 4000 facial rejuvenation procedures under light anesthesia.

Dr. Lee wants you to “Experience Beauty, the most natural way”, and does not believe in the old traditional facelift. Over the course of his career, he has mastered the art and science of facial rejuvenation with natural results, minimal sedation, and easy recovery. His signature “FACEology LIFT” (face and neck lift alternative) is the embodiment of all these elements and is what he is widely sought out for in Orange County.
