In brief: Microcurrent facelif

It depends, what did your doctor tell you? If they will give you sedation for the procedure, take someone to drive you home.
Clarify with your doctor prior to procedure.

In brief: Bring someone

If you have any procedure beyond injections it is best to bring along a driver.

In brief: Depends on meds

If the procedure is performed under local, then you can drive yourself home.
If you require oral or IV sedation then you will need a driver for your safety. I hope this information is helpful. Stephen weber, M.D. Lone tree facial plastic surgeon.

In brief: It depends

If local anesthesia is used you may be able to drive.
If you are having sedation, you will need someone to drive. Your doctor should be able to answer the question best.

In brief: Driving post op

If your procedure is done under a straight local anesthetic with no sedation, it is possible that you would be allowed to drive home.
