Orange County Facelift and Management of High Blood Pressure

Many patients present for an Orange County facelift procedure who tend to be on medication for high blood pressure. Dr. Esmailian performs his facelifts in Orange County and under general anesthesia. During the procedure your blood pressure is monitored closely and can be managed and adjusted by the anesthesiologist. The problem arises postoperatively when the pain is awake and from the stress and anxiety of the Orange County facelift, blood pressure may rise and could lead to bleeding or hematoma.

Therefore, it is very important for patients who have a history of high blood pressure and are on blood pressure medications to take their medications as prescribed. Usually, Orange County plastic surgeon, Dr. Farbod Esmailian likes his patients to take their blood pressure medication with a small sip of water the morning or day of their Orange County facelift procedure. This will help keep the blood pressure regulated during and after the surgery.
