general anesthesia for breast augmentation

Dr. Cooper

What kind of anesthesia is best for breast augmentation? Is an epidural anesthetic a possibility?

- I use general anesthesia, and some local anesthetic, when performing breast augmentations.

- I do not know of any plastic surgeons who use epidural anesthetics for this procedure.

- Occasionally, I will use IV sedation, but generally speaking, I have found that general anesthesia is best for breast augmentations.

camma1I really liked working with Dr. Cooper I found him very easy to talk with, telling him what I wanted and had him explain in simple terms what to expect from the procedure and post surgery.
