Anesthesia for liposuction
Anesthesia is an integral part of liposuction surgery. It helps the patient remain comfortable during the entire procedure, and minimizes potential pain. In most cases, local or general anesthesia is used for liposuction surgery. The selection of anesthesia depends on several factors like age, type of liposuction procedure and individual preferences.
Local anesthesia numbs the areas being treated and also provides some sedation effects that help in keeping the patient relaxed throughout the surgery.
On the other hand, general anesthesia puts patients into a sleep-like state so that they do not feel any discomfort during the procedure.
When selecting an appropriate anesthesia for liposuction surgery it is important to consider all your options and discuss them with your surgeon in order to make an informed decision.
