The aesthetic surgerys can be performed with general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation. General anesthesia, which guarantees the good progress of the surgery in total safety, is performed by putting the patient into deep sleep. During such sleep, respiration is attained through special devices and the human organism preserves all its physiological functions. General anesthesia is applied in particular surgerys when the local or loco - regional anesthesia is not applicable. The use of last generation drugs allows for a prompt and non - traumatic awakening, without dizziness or vomiting, and a quick recovery of patients.Our staff of experts generally prefers using local anesthesia and sedation during aesthetic surgerys for some simple reasons, unless general anesthesia is deemed indispensable. Local anesthesia is performed through some small skin injections of anesthetic drugs, thus guaranteeing numbness and lack of pain at the intervention area. Sedation is a state of somnolence or somehow deeper sleepiness induced by drugs and continuously controlled by the anesthesiologist depending on the surgery’s type and duration. The advantages of sedation compared to general anesthesia consist in the use of very small quantities of drugs during the intervention, while at the same time keeping the patient in a more physiologically normal state and at normal respiration, without using special devices which provide respiration during total anesthesia. After sedation, the use of last generation drugs allows for a prompt and non - traumatic awakening, without dizziness or vomiting, and an even quicker recovery of patients as compared to recovery from general anesthesia. In any case, considering the delicate surgical technique and the patients’ safety, and in order to guarantee maximum surgeon’s work comfort, it is advisable to perform such surgerys under general anesthesia.
