4 Kinds of anesthesia

Most peoples concern when it comes to cosmetic surgery is anaesthesia. The reason seems to be the fact that during anaesthesia a patient has no control over their body and is completely in hands of a professional surgeon.


►  What should I know about cosmetic surgery anaesthetics?

Our anaesthesiologist are happy to advise you on all the concerns you might have regarding anaesthesia and provide you with the best and safest type of anaesthesia with reduction of pain and discomfort depending on your procedure. They also help you forget about all the fears you might have due to lack of information in this field.

► 4 Kinds of anesthesia:

  1. Local Anesthesia is frequently used to prevent pain while being awake to perform small procedures on specific areas of your body. You will be delivered injection of local anaesthetic to the treated area in order to numb the area before the operation. 
  2. Intravenous Sedation is also called twilight by many people who have already experienced it. Medication is given through an IV in this case to prevent pain and provide maximum comfort for a patient. It is often combined with a local anaethesia. Most patients fall asleep using this method. 
  3. Regional Anesthesia  is applied to a larger area of your body to numb it by injecting anaesthesia in the vicinty of spinal nerves. 
  4. General Anesthesia is the most common in cosmetic surgery. Patients go to sleep completely by inhaling anaesthesia and/or injection to prevent pain.  

The type of anaesthesia used for your surgery is closely related to the procedure you are about to undergo. Our anaesthesiologist will explain the importance of a particular type of anaesthesia to you with respect to pain, consciousness and time. 

It is necessary to perform major, extended and more painful surgical procedures in general anaesthesia with normal loss of consciousness. All the medication is delivered intravenously by an anaesthesiologist in the form of a flexible plastic cannula which is inserted into your forearm vein.

Just after the general anaesthesia is administered, patients fall sleep with smile on their face, and approximately 15 minutes after the operation they wake up again.  Patients are usually able to walk with assistance an hour after the operation.

General aneasthesia may cause your blood pressure to drop and you can experience general weakness after the operation, allergic reactions or sick feeling.

However, precise pre-operative medical assessment may lower these factors to zero. It is extremely important not to drink or eat at least 10 hours before the surgical performance.
