What type of anesthesia do I need for a breast lift?
Stuart Linder, MD, Plastic/reconstructive Surgery, answeredI prefer general anesthesia for my breast lift patients. General anesthesia by a board certified anesthesiologist allows for perfect patient control of vital signs, airway, and maintains the patient motionless during the surgical procedure.
How can anesthesia affect my child after surgery?
Intermountain Healthcare answeredAnesthesia affects each child differently. After surgery, your child may have nausea (feel like throwing up), vomit, cry, be agitated, have trouble with his balance (fall easily), or forget how to cope with difficult situations and act younger than usual. Please ask for help when your child needs to get out of bed or use the bathroom.
How long does the surgery to remove the adrenals take?
The length of time spent in surgery for adrenalectomy can vary greatly. On average, both laparoscopic and open operations last approximately 1.5-3 hours; however, the procedure can be longer depending on a variety of factors. Your surgeon will discuss this with you at the time of your appointment and provide you with a more accurate estimate based on the specifics of your case.
