Generally, there are two kinds of anesthesia are used during the eyelid surgery. They can be described as:

  • Local Anesthesia
  • General Anesthesia

Local Anesthesia: Office procedures are performed with local anesthesia. This may generally include small injections and eye drops under the skin in the area that requires surgery.

General Anesthesia: Surgeries performed in an ambulatory care center or hospital are generally performed with intravenous sedation administered by an anesthesiologist. There are some other surgeries like orbital procedures that are performed under general anesthesia.
