If you're unhappy with looking tired (even when you're not), deep frown lines, and/or a turkey neck, consider getting the most advanced facelift procedure in Fort Myers, FL that requires minimal downtime and a speedy recovery in a comfortable office atmosphere...Dr Douglas M. Stevens' signature procedure, the Active Lift facelift. A common concern that my patients express to me is what kind of anesthesia or sedation is used in the procedure. When it comes to a facelift procedure, there are a few options including general anesthesia, intravenous (IV) sedation, and local anesthesia. For a good number of my patients, I believe that performing a face lift under local anesthesia is the best option and the reason is simple. For the right patient, The Active Lift delivers the same long-lasting effects of a traditional facelift, but with the safety of local anesthesia and in a comfortable office setting. No other facial plastic surgery procedure can better soften the effects of time in a safer or more comfortable fashion.
