This is a very special patient to Dr. Robb. “When mom asked me to do her facelift, I was honored.” Mom is 61 years old and is athletic and takes great care of herself. Genetically, there has always been some self-consciousness with her neck. She underwent our signature face and neck lift under local anesthesia while awake as she gets very nauseated and ill from anesthesia. We talked the entire time and she’s thrilled with the results. She was back to watching the grandkids just 8 days after the procedure. Atlanta and Alpharetta facial plastic surgeon Dr. Philip Robb Jr. performs many of his facelifts under local anesthesia as patients get people back to normal life sooner often times with less downtime.
