Are you considering a facelift but apprehensive about the idea of going under general anesthesia? At Eden Plastic Surgery Institute in Miami, FL, we understand your concerns and offer a revolutionary solution: The Awake Facelift or “EVELift” under twilight sedation. Led by the expertise of Dr. Ali Charafeddine, MD, a board-certified plastic surgeon, our approach ensures a safe, comfortable, and personalized cosmetic surgery experience.

Understanding Twilight Sedation

Twilight sedation, or conscious sedation, is a modern anesthesia technique that allows patients to remain awake, yet relaxed and pain-free during procedures. This method is a safer alternative to general anesthesia, particularly for those who may have concerns about deeper forms of sedation. Under twilight sedation, you can communicate with your surgeon, providing immediate feedback, which is invaluable during aesthetic procedures like facelifts.

Benefits of Twilight Sedation Compared to General Anesthesia

  1. Safety: Twilight sedation reduces the risks associated with general anesthesia, making it a safer option for a wide range of patients, especially those with specific medical conditions or concerns.
  2. Faster Recovery: Patients typically recover more quickly from twilight sedation, experiencing less grogginess and fewer side effects, which means a smoother and faster return to daily activities.
  3. Reduced Risk of Complications: With fewer side effects and a lower risk of complications, twilight sedation offers a safer alternative for those undergoing facial rejuvenation procedures.
  4. Patient Comfort: Despite being awake, patients feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure, free from pain and anxiety.

Awake Facelift Using IV Sedation

The Awake Facelift at Eden Plastic Surgery Institute harnesses the advantages of twilight sedation to offer a unique and patient-friendly approach to facial rejuvenation:

  1. Natural-Looking Results: Being awake allows for better communication with Dr. Charafeddine, ensuring results that are in harmony with your natural features and aesthetic goals.
  2. Immediate Feedback: You can provide real-time feedback during the procedure, allowing for adjustments that can lead to more precise and satisfying outcomes.
  3. Minimal Downtime: The recovery from an Awake Facelift is typically quicker than traditional facelifts performed under general anesthesia, allowing you to return to your routine with minimal interruption.
  4. Tailored Procedures: Each facelift is customized to meet the individual needs and desires of our patients, ensuring results that enhance and rejuvenate your natural appearance.
