Facelift Under Local Anesthesia

Dr. John Q. Cook’s surgical approach allows most patients to have a facelift under local anesthesia for a more comfortable and positive patient experience.

Plastic Surgery Under Local Anesthesia

While general anesthesia is highly effective to suppress sensation during surgical procedures, it unfortunately comes with some side effects and drawbacks that can discourage prospective patients from pursuing their procedure of choice.

The benefits of local anesthesia for cosmetic surgery bypass these drawbacks. Dr. John Q. Cook has refined this advanced approach to cosmetic surgery at Chicago’s Whole Beauty® Institute for many surgical procedures including facelift.
