Prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. John Anastasatos now offers facelifts under local anesthesia to patients

“Performing face and neck lifts under local anesthesia broadens the spectrum of patients who can perform these procedures, and overall it is much safer for them. My patients are thrilled with the exceptional results I have been able to achieve,” says Dr. John Anastasatos.

Many patients considering a face or neck lift fear the use of general anesthesia or intravenous sedation, which is a major barrier to performing the procedures. Performing a facelift or neck lift under local anesthesia is a much safer option for the patient and, when performed by a renowned expert, such as Dr. John Anastasatos, does not compromise the outcome. Dr. Anastasatos was privileged to receive advanced training in face and neck lift surgery under local anesthesia under the guidance of Dr. Luis Vasconez, a pioneer of this procedure. Not all plastic surgeons are able or comfortable doing facelifts or neck lifts under local anesthesia like Dr. Anastasatos. It requires extra skills, extra training, and the extra patience he has. Using state-of-the-art injection techniques and methods during surgery, Dr. Anastasatos’ patients experience only an initial “mosquito bite” with little to no pain for the remaining injections. The patients’ blood pressure and heart rate remain stable throughout the operation. From a surgical point of view, the risk of hematoma and postoperative blood clots decreases considerably when performing facelift and neck lift procedures under local anesthesia. The recovery process begins immediately and the fatigue associated with general anesthesia is also avoided. The cost of a face and/or neck lift under local anesthesia is comparable to that of general anesthesia or intravenous sedation, however, it requires additional time in the operating room.

“Performing face and neck lifts under local anesthesia broadens the spectrum of patients who can perform these procedures, and overall it is much safer for them. My patients are thrilled with the exceptional results I have been able to achieve,” says Dr. John Anastasatos.
