For most people the general aesthetic route is far more appealing. Mainly due to fears that a local anesthetic might not totally deaden any pain issues. However it’s not the same level as a local anaesthetic at your dentists its far stronger and includes sedation too. This patient opted for a local with sedation as he was anxious about going “completely under”. Moreover the surgeon said not being totally asleep was better for him to work in a live patients. He can direct where he needs the patient to move his head etc.

I understand it was around 40% cheaper than in UK. Of course there were travel and hotel costs to factor in. However for my dad it was not about the costs more about the high standards of work. He had an implicit trust in the surgeon. But for most people the saving would somewhere in the region of 25% allowing for travel and hotel.
