It’s natural to feel some uneasiness about going under anesthesia for a cosmetic surgery procedure. However, when you have plastic surgery at Blackhawk Plastic Surgery, there is no need for anxiety over your safety while under anesthesia.
For the use of anesthesia during a cosmetic surgery procedure, The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends that:
1. Your anesthesia is administered by a board certified anesthesiologist.
2. Before your surgery, your anesthesiologist and surgeon obtain a full medical history, including any applicable lab tests. Of special concern are any medical conditions or previous adverse reactions to anesthesia. A comprehensive medical history should also include any prescription medication, known drug allergies, and any history of smoking, alcohol abuse, or illegal drug use.
3. Before, during, and after your surgery you should have individual monitoring by licensed staff.
4. You are attended to by staff members that are familiar with the warning signs of respiratory and cardiac distress and are trained in advanced cardiac life support.
In accordance with the recommendations of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Blackhawk Plastic Surgery has a board certified anesthesiologist on staff. Dr. Kemerer, the board certified anesthesiologist at Blackhawk Plastic Surgery, works in tandem with our surgeons to compile your complete medical history prior to your plastic surgery procedure. In addition, Dr. Kemerer will create your anesthetic state, as well as monitor your vital signs throughout your plastic surgery procedure. As the affects of anesthesia depend upon several factors, including your weight, percentage of body fat, and the type of anesthetic used, it is always best to have your anesthesia managed by an anesthesiologist.
