New Twist on Trusted Procedures: Surgery without "Going Under" Anesthesia

NEW YORK, May 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Women looking for a way to rejuvenate their aging face or enhance their appearance often investigate plastic surgery options but hesitate to undergo any radical procedures due to the expense and side effects associated with undergoing surgery. The JUVA Skin and Laser Center in New York is constantly offering patients new ways to feel comfortable with having a procedure performed by finding new ways to minimize recovery time and side effects. By performing certain surgeries without general anesthesia in the comfort of an accredited surgery center, like the one found at JUVA Skin and Laser Center, risk, recovery time and expense are reduced.

Adam D. Schaffner, M.D., F.A.C.S., Director of Plastic Surgery at JUVA Skin and Laser Center, is offering an option for those individuals who wish to have a facelift, eyelid lift or breast augmentation but do not want to "go under" anesthesia.  By using local anesthesia to numb the face, a person can have a mini-facelift, full facelift or eyelid lift safely performed without having to assume the risks or undesirable side effects associated with general anesthesia.  Breast augmentation can also be performed under local anesthesia with IV sedation to avoid risks and side effects associated with general anesthesia.

"At JUVA, our patients come to us for state-of-the-art, specialized procedures in plastic surgery.  Being able to perform facial plastic surgery without having to "go under" anesthesia offers those individuals with very busy lives a safe and affordable approach to reversing the signs of aging," said Dr. Adam Schaffner.  "At JUVA, we are constantly perfecting the way our patients look while remaining sensitive to their concerns."  

For more information, please see or call (212) 688-5882.  To interview Dr. Adam D. Schaffner, please contact Alexis Tedesco of Lexamedia at 347.830.4004 or e-mail her at
