Anesthesia for In-Office Oculoplastic Surgery: How We Do It
The effective use of local anesthesia combined with minimal oral sedation can obviate the need for intravenous sedation or general anesthesia in many common oculoplastic procedures. We routinely perform upper and lower blepharoplasty, fat pad repositioning, ptosis correction, tumor removal and reconstruction, and entropion and ectropion repair without the use of intravenous or general anesthesia.
