Breast Augmentation Anesthesia

Breast Augmentation Anesthesia

Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure requiring anesthesia. Anesthesia ensures you do not experience any pain or discomfort during the surgery.

Plastic surgeons use various forms of anesthesia. At E. Kim Plastic Surgery, Dr. Eugene Kim uses general anesthesia for breast augmentations. General anesthesia has the greatest guarantee of comfort for the patient. Please contact Beverly Hills-area plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim for a breast augmentation consultation.

Advantages of General Anesthesia

General anesthesia allows you to be completely relaxed throughout your breast augmentation procedure. You will not feel any pain or other sensations while Dr. Kim is performing your breast augmentation.

Some surgeons use other forms of anesthesia, but general anesthesia has several advantages, including:

  • You will feel as though the procedure took only moments
  • You will not have any memory of the procedure
  • Your breathing and vital signs will be monitored by a doctor
  • You will not feel any discomfort while the procedure is being performed

During your consultation, you will learn more about your breast augmentation and Dr. Kim will make sure you are a candidate for general anesthesia.

General Anesthesia: What to Expect

General anesthesia offers the most comfortable surgical experience, but, like any form of anesthesia, your body will need time to recover from it.

When you wake up, you may feel dizzy, nauseous and disoriented, which is normal. You may also feel as though your surgery has not begun because it will seem like little or no time has passed.

In the hours after breast augmentation surgery, your anesthesia recovery may involve:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Disorientation
  • Discomfort
  • Feeling “chilly” or cold

Before going home, you will spend some time recuperating while under the care of the surgical center staff. Before your breast augmentation surgery, you will have arranged for someone to drive you home and to stay with you for at least 24 hours after surgery.
