When you think of any type of surgical procedure, you probably envision being “knocked out” with general anesthesia. It might surprise you to learn that Dr. John Lee is able to perform all plastic surgery at his office near Philadelphia using local anesthetic.

Instead of rendering the patient unconscious, local anesthesia simply numbs a small area. Dr. Lee specializes in minimally invasive brow and eyelid surgeries, meaning patients who might encounter complications from general anesthesia won’t have to worry about the effect a cosmetic procedure might have on their health.

Apart from the type of anesthetic, other things you can expect during your plastic surgery visit include:

  • Dr. Lee will continue to answer your questions and offer input at every step before the procedure
  • You will enter a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere
  • Instruments and equipment will be sterilized and ready
  • The procedure will be performed in a clean, safe environment – most likely one of our in-office surgical suites

Once your procedure is complete, Dr. Lee will provide you with all relevant aftercare instructions. You can also ask any questions about your plastic surgery at this point, as well as schedule one or more post-operative visits so Dr. Lee can assess the results and your recovery.

To learn more about what’s involved in plastic surgery, please contact John J.W. Lee, MD, FACS, or call (610) 789-6701 today to schedule your initial consultation. Dr. Lee welcomes patients throughout the Philadelphia area.
