Imagine being able to talk, read or even eat while you are undergoing surgery.

It sounds crazy — but it’s happening right here in our backyard. It’s a brand new plastic surgery procedure called the Awake Lift™.

Local plastic surgeon Dr. Fredric Barr, of Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, performs the procedure.

Actually, it’s a mini face lift that happens while the patient is wide awake.


There’s no down time and no general anesthesia.

Using a new technique, Dr. Barr is able to improve the sagging jowls and jaw line with removal of excess skin and fat, along with tightening of the muscle covering.

After complete numbing with local anesthesia solution injections, the incision is placed in the natural crease of the ear.

For “beginners” and those who’ve already had previous facelifts, the Awake Lift™ is an excellent choice to create a more youthful appearance.

And, with this procedure, maintenance and upkeep can be achieved in an “un-extreme” fashion.

The main benefits of the Awake Lift™ surgery:

  • Local anesthesia only (quick, simple numbing injection)
  • Fraction of the investment of traditional lift (affordable)
  • Creates long lasting results
  • Safely performed in the office (in and out faster)
  • Limited bruising, swelling, recovery (minimal downtime)
  • Resume your lifestyle and most normal activities the next day
  • Popular for both healthy men and women of all ages

The offices are located at 450 Avenue of the Champions, in Palm Beach Gardens.
