I had a LSL and upper eye lift (1 week ago). I am scheduled for the lower lift mid september because you should not have the lower done under local anesthesia. My Dr. was wonderful and he bent over backwards to make this a great experience. I had plenty of valium 30 minutes prior to my Dr even touching me. So I was very relaxed. The needles on the face were not fun but the valium made it bearable and my Dr shook my skin as he was sticking me and it helped to reduce the pain of the needle. The process took about 3 hours. I was aware of everything that he was doing but it did not bother me. If you are going to be awake you must be prepared for this. There is nothing the Dr can do about that except knock you out. I would rather be awake and hear what is going on than be knocked out. Yes I am sore and bruised but how can anyone be so naive as not to know you could not have a procedure like this without pain and bruising. I love what I see in the mirror. The scars around my ears are not even noticeable. He did a great job. I am so happy with what I see I just hope it lasts.
