(MENAFN – GetNews) Dr. Robert Sheffield, head of Robert W. Sheffield, MD Plastic Surgery, uses local anesthesia for the primary treatment of sagging jowls for facial rejuvenation. Patients can book appointments, as the surgery center follows all recommended CDC guidelines including social distancing and protocol checklist prior to entry of the facility.
Dr. Robert W. Sheffield is an experienced plastic surgeon who uses minimally invasive to non-invasive surgical procedures for facial rejuvenation. He uses tumescent and/or local anesthesia for all of his surgical procedures with the main goal in mid of providing a quicker recovery, a decreased risk and with a reduced cost when compared to general anesthesia. By using this technique, patients can generally get the desired results with minimal surgical scarring. Dr. Sheffield uses the local anesthesia technique for his Santa Barbara facelift procedure to improve the sagging skin of the lower one third of the face typically seen in his patients with these concerns. The jowl region is the sagging skin which forms below the corners of the mouth and above the jawline as a result of the aginf process.
According to Dr. Sheffield, ‘Jowls are the sagging skin that are found above the jawline area. This excess loose skin neart the chin area is a contributing factor to self-esteem and self confidence of patients with this concern. Sagging jowls can be corrected with a full facelift procedure, but at Robert W. Sheffield, MD Plastic Surgery , we use local anesthesia in our short scar facelift procedure as the primary method for jowl correction. With the help of local anesthesia, we will redefine your jawline and help restore a more youthful appearance. The facelift procedure can also address any excess skin that is a result of aging and can be tightend. The aesthetic procedure for jowl concerns would be recommended after a full facial examination during the initial consult.
Dr. Robert Sheffield uses the local anesthesia technique with all of his surgical procedures to fall in line with current plastic surgery trends of his patients wanting a less invasive approach to facial rejuvenation. The sagging skin is injected with a lidocaine solution near the jawline region to provide additional patient comfort. This treatment can also help with correcting wrinkles and folds associated with the excess skin.
‘We make sure that our patients are comfortable during any of our procedures. The customized treatment plan we design is primarly used for our patients to give them the necessary satisfaction with the goals discussed during initial consult. Moreover, patient candidacy is rigorous to help ensure that the facelift procedure is the idela modality rather than a non-surgical route such as Botox or dermal fillers. This treatment is administered through local anesthesia, so there are minimal potential side effects. Patients can return to their daily routine after a brief recovery. he further added.
Dr. Sheffield is a pioneer of specifically only using tumescent and local anesthesia techniques in the Santa Barbara area. Patients can now get smoother and tightening skin using local anesthesia and without having to undergo the risks of general anesthesia.
