ASK DOCTOR YAGODA
Answer: You can certainly have a blepharoplasty (eye lift) without general anesthesia. But, there is no need to be a martyr and reject all anesthesia! Upper eyelid surgery can be done safely and comfortably in the office operating room under topical and local anesthetic. Lower lid blepharoplasty can be done under intravenous sedation and local anesthetic. In both cases, you will be completely comfortable and feel nothing!
