The director of our clinic sometimes operates at university hospitals. The other day, face lift surgery was performed under general anesthesia, and he participated in it. Surgery at a university hospital has a team medical system, and 3-4 plastic surgeons perform the surgery as a team. Surgery that takes about 4 hours to perform alone can be safely and effectively performed in 2 to 3 hours, and good results can be expected from the viewpoint of anesthesia management.
There are various surgical methods for face lift, but under general anesthesia, you can also pull the fascial tissue called deep SMAS. The director of this clinic can perform face lift even under local anesthesia, in which case one-day surgery is also possible, but it is rather a mini lift.
In this way, at our hospital, it is possible to operate the face lift in the hospital or outpatient department according to the needs of the patient.
