Facelift (Rhytidectomy) | What Is It, Steps, Recovery, Complications & What to Expect

How will the surgery pass (the steps)?

1. Anesthesia

The surgery starts with anesthesia that aims to your comfort during the procedure. You can do the facelift under sedation and local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Sedation and local anesthesia numb only the part of your body where the surgeon performs the procedure. General anesthesia affects your consciousness, and you will go to sleep.

Your doctor will choose the best type of anesthesia, depending on your condition and the type of procedure that you will get.
