Breast Augmentation – The Procedure– Houston
During your breast augmentation procedure, you will be placed under some form of anesthesia. Anesthesia prevents you from feeling any pain or discomfort during the procedure. There are a lot of people who are nervous about Anesthesia, so educating yourself about the basics of the process will help prepare you.
Before your procedure begins, an IV will be started and sedation will be administered. It is common for patients to be unable to recall events of the day after sedation is given. You will be sound asleep and under the care of your anesthesiologist throughout the operation. Extremely sensitive monitors used during surgery have greatly reduced the risks of anesthesia. Any change in the oxygen level in your blood, in the amount of carbon dioxide you breathe out, in the percentage of anesthetic gas being administered, in your heart rate, or in your blood pressure would be reported immediately.
Experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Andrew Lyos take great care to ensure that you are under the best of care.
