You may not want to be put to sleep to have your breast augmentation performed. Some women don’t like the effects of a general anesthetic, or are afraid of anesthesia, or may have some other personal reason. We do your breast augmentation and/or lift while you’re awake. Rest assured you will be comfortable while doing the procedure.
Awake breast Augmentation is a smart choice because it is one of the safest anesthetic methods to augment or lift the breasts. We use mild sedation and then numb your breasts with a special anesthetic solution called tumescent fluid. However, if you are anxious about being awake during surgery, don’t fret. We also offer breast augmentation using deep sedation, i.e. while you’re asleep, if you prefer. We are accredited for both. We want to do what you want so we make it your choice.
There are many advantages to the Awake method. You don’t have to have to have a general anesthetic nor do you have to recuperate from a general anesthetic. Thus there’s less nausea and vomiting associated with the procedure. You also avoid the many but rare potential problems that may occur with a general anesthetic, about which many people are concerned. There is less potential for infection and bleeding. Plus, downtime recovery is better
First, we give you mild sedation, then we numb the breasts with the anesthetic fluid. You might feel some injection “stings” during this process, but with the sedation, you are very comfortable. After the injections, you’re numb. Then we do the cosmetic breast surgery while you’re awake but with numb breasts. Most patients love the procedure and are happy they choose this route. In fact, some say why doesn’t everyone do it this way!
If you are searching for a new method to augment your breasts without being put to sleep, this may be the procedure for you. You can also perform many other procedures with the Awake method, but usually not at the same time. If you want several procedures performed at one time, or if you would prefer just going to sleep and feeling nothing during your procedure, we also offer this asleep method using deep sedation anesthesia
