Had alcohol after a procedure with local anesthesia. Reddish cheeks. Are these connected?

I had a minor procedure at 11:00am and had local anesthesia . I came home and rested but I had a few glasses of wine that evening. I woke up with really pink cheeks and they are still red. I am assuming it is due to the wine from last night? I have been drinking alot of water today. Please let me know if I should be concerned about my red cheeks. Thank you,

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic
Thi si sprobbaly cause dby alcohol as usually alcohol causes redness and vessel dilatation. But it is not recommended to drink alcohol shortly after any procedure or anasthesia. If you notice some other strange sign you should visit hospital but at this point it isnt indicating anything serious.

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic. Regards .Wish you good health.
