In brief: Possibly

A limited skin only breast lift can be performed under local, very few patients would be good candidates for this type of lift.
Most patients would be better served having a breast lift under general anesthesia. Consult a board certified plastic surgeon. http://www.dassmd.com/breast-enhancements/index.html.

In brief: Probably Not

In my experience patients are most comfortable when pain-free and sleeping through this procedure.
Surgeons can then concentrate on the complexities of their craft, minimize surgical time and be free to communicate only with their surgical team of anesthesiology providers and nurses.

In brief: Talk to MD

Some plastic surgery procedures can be performed with just local anesthesia.
However for this one i think you would prefer some sedation.

In brief: Yes

Local anesthesia is perfectly reasonable in a cooperative patient.
