FACELIFT & OTHER COSMETIC SURGERY PROCEDURES UNDER LOCAL ANESTHESIA & TWILIGHT SEDATION WITHOUT THE NEED FOR GENERAL ANESTHESIA
Using twilight sedation with local anesthetic avoids the risks of general anesthetic which can put extra strain on the body and cause some patients have several days of feeling weak and nauseous after surgery.
Using the twilight sedation method also avoids the effects of the strong medication needed for general anesthesia which can result in more bruising and swelling.
Twilight anesthesia is given through an IV (Intravenous drip line) resulting in a feeling of being being very sleepy and relaxed throughout the procedure. This technique is very popular for Facial surgery but many other procedures can be safely performed this way:
Some Rhinoplasty (nose surgery)
Otoplasty (ear surgery)
Some Breast Augmentation
Small areas of Liposuction
First Patients will be given a sedative which will put them to sleep for a short time. During this time multiple local anaesthetic shots will be given to numb the area having surgery and the IV sedation will be started.
This intravenous medication is stopped once the procedure is over and you wake up in a few minutes, without any nausea headache or hangover from general anaesthesia. Compared to general anaesthesia Twilight Sedation is extremely safe and also reduces bruising and swelling.
After a rest in the recovery ward patients are taken straight back to their hotel. For the next two days patients will be brought back to the surgery for a short review and the removal of compression bandages and drains. Once this is done recovery is well under way and patients are able to undertake light activity.
Dr. Wong has used this method for many years and is considered an expert in the field.

Patient Comments from their Testimonials:
“Fantastic results so far and its only day 10. Also excellent value for money for such a skilled surgeon.
Wonderful service from Beauty Yours – Suzanne S from New Zealand”
“Dr. Wong is highly skilled and experienced and his results speak for themselves.
Bruising was less than I expected, still quite a bit of swelling (day 10) but I am looking better (and younger) by the day – Jocelyn from Australia”
“Everything has happened at the pace I was informed of. 8 days post op and apart from some old bruising on my jaw line, the general results are very pleasing. I was worried that my appearance would change. The change is a much more youthful appearance. Love the shape of my newly uplifted eyebrows – Tracy D from New Zealand”
“I am only on day 10 of my recovery, and will be going out to lunch with friends for the first time and to shop, some concealer, a big straw hat to shade me from the sun and glasses, I will be good to go. Watch this space to see my transformation . . .
