I am a 57 year old male looking to spruce up my eyelids. My Cardiologist won’t sign off on general anesthesia but I was told I can have just my upper lids done under local anesthesia. Is this true?


Blepharoplasty can certainly be done under local anesthesia without the need for general sedation. You may feel slight pressure and movement but not pain. Your Doctor will monitor your pain levels throughout the procedure and little by little inject local anesthetic throughout to ensure a safe and comfortable surgical experience.
