GENERAL ANESTHESIA

A percentage of the population is prone to having strong, negative effects from general anesthetic. These may include prolonged nausea and vomiting or headache post-procedure. Because of previous, adverse effects experienced from general anesthetic or because of fears about risks associated with this type of medication, many people seek safe, effective alternative options for anesthetic during breast augmentation surgery. People who come in to Gartner Plastic Surgery often share their fears based on anecdotal stories.

Often there is no scientific evidence to support the concern, but Dr. Gartner knows that anxiety can affect the surgical experience and he does not want his patients to be unnecessarily worried or feel ill after their procedure. The truth is, you can feel clear-headed and experience minimal discomfort, nausea or other ill-effects after your breast recovery. Dr. Gartner has perfected methods of using pre-emptive anesthetic and atraumatic surgical techniques so that, if they choose, his patients can have awake breast augmentation surgery with minimal down time and less need of pain medication or negative effects of anesthesia.

LOCAL ANESTHESIA

The use of local, long acting anesthetic to perform breast augmentation while a patient stays awake is a fairly common and entirely safe practice. Sometimes people fear that choosing this method means they may feel pain during the procedure. Dr. Gartner gives his patients valium to help relieve any anxiety. During the procedure, the sterile conditions are the same as during a regular breast augmentation. He first injects the breast tissue with fast acting and long acting numbing medications.

These injections can be felt, as with any needle, but they are small and this part of the process is quick and well-tolerated. After 10 minutes, Dr. Gartner can begin the procedure and you will feel nothing but some generalized tugging or pressure sensations. Patients describe the sensation as having someone lean on them a little. You will not see what is going on because of draping in front of your chest but you can hear and communicate. Many patients become sleepy and sleep naturally due to the effects of the Valium. In 7 years of perfecting this procedure, Dr. Gartner has never had a patient wake up and ask for the procedure to be stopped.

The awake breast augmentation method allows Dr. Gartner to reduce your risks of general anesthetic- including the rare risk of malignant hypothermia. The recovery time post procedure is the same as with standard breast augmentation except patients avoid the groggy, light-headed or nauseous sensations which can persist for a few days after GA. Patients are awake and aware in recovery, so they are able to relax in the comfort of their own home shortly after.

However, the only way to really know if you’re a suitable candidate for surgery is by talking to Dr. Gartner during your private medical consultation.
