Procedures and What to Expect

Most plastic surgery operations can be performed safely under Local Anesthesia with Intravenous Sedation administered by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. Lower body surgeries such as abdominoplasty are usually performed under Spinal Anesthesia.  We work with the same anesthesiologist every day in a private surgical center, meeting the highest standards of safety required by the American Association For Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF).

Patients having facelifts, breast reductions, abdominoplasty and body sculpting procedures are taken care of post-operatively by one of our Private Duty Nurses for 24 – 48 hrs.  These nurses are trained in monitoring your recovery and assisting in a rapid recovery.

Most patients from outside the United States who undergo facelifts remain in New York for 10 – 14 days and are constantly attended to by our office staff.  Patients who undergo surgery of the eyelids, nose, breasts, or liposuction, usually remain about 1 week.

Very often patients inquire about surgery on several areas. Commonly combined procedures are facelift and eyelidplasty with breast reduction or lifting or abdominoplasty and liposuction. I operate very efficiently and can usually keep these combined procedures to less then 5 hours of surgery. Because general anesthesia is not used and the operating time is less than 6 hours, the risks and possible complications are minimized. The advantages of doing combined procedures when possible are one anesthesia and one recovery period. This means less down time, and less anesthesia.
