Anesthesia used in Breast Augmentation Surgery

There are many types of anesthesia that can be used for breast augmentation surgery. The one you receive depends on the type of surgery, the facility where it is being performed, your general health and your surgeon’s preferences.

Your personal risk profile depends on the type of anesthesia used, your overall health and how you respond to the chosen anesthetics anesthesia does have some risk attached involved, but fortunately, major side effects and complications are very rare. Anesthesia should be administered by an anesthesiologist or by a nurse-anesthetist. These professionals are specifically trained to administer this medication. There are three main categories of anesthesia used for breast augmentation:

  • General anesthesia. You are completely unconscious.
  • Local anesthesia. The specific location that needs surgery is numb.
  • Sedation anesthesia (“conscious sedation”). Your level of consciousness is altered.
