The Different Types of Anesthesia

Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, it is important for patients to ask about some of the details of the procedure. This includes the type of anesthesia that will be employed. General anesthesia is the standard form of anesthesia we use. When under general anesthesia, patients are completely unconscious and have no recollection of the procedure once they wake up. 

At our practice, we take a different approach. Prior to the procedure, we prescribe certain prescriptions to the patient which they are to bring in on the day of their treatment. These prescriptions ensure that patients are relaxed. After undergoing an assessment, patients take the prescription medications and then go into the operating room. 

Once in the operating room, patients receive Pro-Nox, which is a form of nitrous oxide. After taking a few brief puffs of the gas, patients feel much more relaxed and ready for their treatment. At this point, Dr. Shah begins numbing the treatment area with a local anesthetic to ensure that patients are comfortable throughout the process. Most patients find that our approach to anesthesia is much more comfortable and easier to recover from than receiving general anesthesia.
