Can a blepharoplasty procedure or eyelid lift be performed under local anesthesia?  Yes.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon and eyelid lift expert.  He performs eyelid lifts using either local anesthesia, monitored anesthesia, or general anesthesia; based on patient preference. Most cases of blepharoplasty, however, are peformed with the patient awake during the procedure.  Fortunately, the eyelid area is easily anesthetized and patients fair well during the procedure.

Most cases require no hospitalization and patients can return home within one hour of their procedure.  Schedule a consultation for eyelid surgery by calling our office at (310) 998-5533.
