Im 38, female, and Im getting ready to go ahead with a midface lift. My only concern at this point is the anesthesia. When I had my rhinoplasty they put me under twilight sedation, which I didnt like. Is a midface lift done with general anesthetic or twilight sedation?
A mid-face lift can be performed under general anesthesia or under twilight anesthesia. Good local anesthesia and nerve blocks as well as an experienced anesthesiologist all make for a pleasant experience during a mid-face lift performed under twilight anesthesia.
