What is the anesthesia used during breast augmentation surgery?
Breast augmentation surgery is an outpatient procedure with patients discharged home about an hour after the procedure. Anesthesia can be IV sedation or general anesthesia. Both types are available in our state-licensed and Medicare-Certified surgical center. These options are discussed with the patient during the pre-operative consultation. For general anesthesia we use experienced, board certified anesthesia providers who are dedicated to safety and comfort in our outpatient surgical setting.
