Understanding Anesthesia

To be completed comfortably, breast surgery in Sacramento, like all cosmetic surgery procedures, requires some level of anesthesia. Most procedures are performed under general anesthesia where you will sleep comfortably through the entire procedure and woken by a nurse when you are in recovery. In our practice, for most surgeries, including breast enlargement, Sacramento patients receive general anesthesia to ensure their comfort.

For that reason, a board-certified anesthesiologist will provide your care throughout the entire procedure. We feel this is a key element of safety and smooth recovery. Some practices rely on anesthesia provided by a certified nurse anesthetist or registered nurse. While many nurses are extremely skilled in their profession, board-certified MD anesthesiologists undergo the most rigorous training; therefore, we feel they can provide the highest level of safety and quality care.
