4. Inhalation agents, (including Nitrous Oxide)with or without endotracheal intubation or laryngeal mask airway anesthesia.
The types of anesthesia that is available at our AAAASF nationally accredited center.
1. Local anesthesia
Used for preventing pain and blood loss in very specific areas during your surgery. During this type of procedure you will remain awake and will even be aware of activities going on around you. This type of anesthesia may take the form of a spray, injection or ointment. Complications are very rare but there is a risk the medications can be absorbed by your body.
2. Regional anesthesia
Also known as a block, regional anesthesia is used to numb a larger area than what a local can handle. This can include a spinal block that may be used for the surrounding nerves that are capable of producing pain signals. A classic example of this is an epidural anesthesia used during childbirth. But for plastic surgery procedures, regional anesthesia may be used for a whole host of procedures.
Sedation can be administered several ways, including intravenously, as a pill or even an inhaled gas. This form of anesthesia can make you feel relaxed and drowsy, a similar feeling to having a few drinks. A combination of medications can comprise sedation for the prevention of pain and anxiety that is sometimes associated with any medical procedure.
There are also varying levels of sedation – minimal, moderate and deep. Sedation does have a few side effects like a headache and possibly even nausea and vomiting.
4. General anesthesia
Frequently used for procedures more extensive in nature, this form of anesthesia will prevent you from feeling any pain and you will not be able to remember the procedure later. The drugs used for this type of anesthesia may be injected through a vein or inhaled.
Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC), also known as conscious sedation or twilight sleep, is a type of sedation that is administered through an IV to make a patient sleepy and calm during a procedure. It is a common sedation used for facelift surgeries.
One form of anesthesia that is gaining additional attention is TIVA.
TIVA is defined as Total Intravenous Anesthesia. This technique is safe, effective and has been around for many years.
TIVA is still technically a general anesthesia, but one without inhalation gas or the placement of a breathing tube in the throat. Instead, the anesthetic is administered through the vein. The advantage of this technique is that it reduces or eliminates some of the risks associated with inhalation anesthesia. For instance, the chance of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) significantly decreases with TIVA. The other advantage of the technique is a significant improvement in post-operative pain control. The technique usually uses a local anesthetic nerve block around the area that is operated on to manage pain during surgery and in the hours immediately after surgery. TIVA can be used during a variety of cosmetic procedures including breast augmentation, breast implant removal, breast lift and liposuction.
