In the Surgical Center, the anesthesiologist will perform the anesthesia, which can be three types:
1- LOCAL ANESTHESIA WITH SEDATION:
This anesthesia is used very frequently in the surgeries of Face Lift, Rhinoplasty (nose), Blepharoplasty (Eyelid), Otoplasty and Breast Implant.
In this anesthesia the patient is completely sedated and the anesthesia is made only in the place where the surgery will be performed. Injectable injections into the vein that induce sleep, the patient is monitored, being evaluated by signs of noninvasive blood pressure, cardioscope and pulse oximetry, thus monitored and in the total control of the anesthetist. It is a very safe anesthetic and is currently being used more and more.
2- REGIONAL BLOCKING (RAQUE OR PERIDURAL)
It is much used in plastic surgeries of abdomen (abdominoplasty), liposuction in the belly, back and lower limbs.
In this anesthesia is injected near the column, acting in the place that will be operated. Usually the blockade is performed with the patient sedated.
3 – GENERAL ANESTHESIA
Uses intravenous anesthetics and / or inhalational agents to lead the patient to complete unconsciousness during the operation. Advances in the area have made the anesthesia more powerful and safer, reducing the time the anesthetic stays in the blood, allowing for a quicker wake-up.
