Anesthesia Options


We know one of your biggest concerns about facelift surgery is your anesthesia. At the Newport Center for Special Surgery, safety is our first concern.  Thus we have developed the Rest-Assure anesthesia program.  With Rest-Assure, you will be offered a face to face consultation weeks or days ahead of your surgery with a board certified anesthesiologist Doctor who will take care of you the day of your surgery.  Your personal anesthesia Doctor will discuss your anesthesia options, review your pre and post operative instructions and develop a custom anesthetic plan for you. Our patients find this consult removes much of the uncertainty about their anesthesia experience.

Rest-Assure also means you will be offered a plan to minimize post operative pain and nausea. Our Rest-Assure program has consistently allowed our plastic surgery patients to have lower pain and nausea rates than seen in national benchmark data.


While many patients prefer a local anesthetic only for their mini facelift or neck lift procedures, an equal number prefer General Anesthesia or Conscious Sedation anesthesia techniques. these anesthesia techniques do incur a fee for the anesthesia Doctor's services. Charges are based on the length of the surgical procedure.
