We present our increasing experience using blunt tipped filler cannulas for local anesthesia infiltration to minimize pain and bruising during upper lid blepharoplasty. Avoiding injection pain enables the patient to enjoy the benefits of wide awake surgery without the inconveniences of sedation. We present educational videos on how to perform the local anesthetic infiltration using blunt tipped cannulas, the blepharoplasty procedure itself on a wide awake patient, and a video on the patient's perspective of wide awake blepharoplasty.
