Local Anesthetic w/Oral Sedation - Safe for Upper Eyelid and Lower Facelift Surgery?
Am 55 with skin in very good condition. But have drooping upper lids and banding in neck. To have a lower face lift/platysmaplasty and upper eyelid surgery, doctor has offered me either the option of IV sedation with board certified anes. or was also told I was a candidate for just local with oral sedation, which will save me a substantial amount of money. Is there any reason not to do it this way? Is one form of anesthesia riskier than the other?
