Cosmetic Face and Neck Lifts with Local and Tumescent Anesthesia Increase Patient Satisfaction
The Use of Low Dose Lidocaine and Facial Tumesence Lower Complications.
Researchers have learned that the specific local anesthetic called Lidocaine decreases the number of postoperative lower face and neck lift complications when it is used with a medically induced swelling (tumescence)
The findings prove that face- and neck-lifting procedures have become quite safe and easily achievable under local anesthesia. Patients don't need to be put to sleep and do not fear possible complications as they once did. There is little to no risk of postoperative nausea or vomiting, increased blood pressure or venous thrombosis (the development of clots in leg veins) from the use of local anesthesia with surgically induced tumescence. That facial plumping technique, and the local anesthesia, allows surgeons to perform their work safely without causing future problems for the patient.
