I perform breast augmentations under IV anesthesia in our AAAASF accredited surgery center located right next to my office here in Baltimore, Maryland. I use IV sedation instead of General Anesthesia to make your recovery as quick as possible and to eliminate the pulmonary risks associated with General Anesthesia. For the utmost safety, your anesthesia is administered only by Board Certified Anesthesiologists. By using IV anesthesia instead of General Anesthesia, much, if not all, of the post op nausea is eliminated. The procedure takes up to two hours and you can go back to work in one week.
The two types of breast implants available on the market today are saline filled implants and cohesive silicone gel filled implants. We commonly refer to these implants by their shorter name, ‘saline implants’ or ‘silicone implants’. The newest cohesive silicone implants were approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2006, after extensive research into their safety and performance. The principal advantage to the silicone implants is that the breast has a more natural ‘feel’, and there is less visible implant wrinkling. We use both Natrelle Allergan and Mentor breast implants for cosmetic breast procedures.
