Surgery can be performed in a number of locations. Generally, aesthetic plastic surgery takes place in a hospital or an ambulatory surgery center. Our facility meets strict health care guidelines and is equipped with the latest in surgical technology. For some aesthetic surgical procedures, you will be given general anesthesia so that you sleep through the entire operation. During surgery, you will be carefully monitored by a certified registered nurse anesthetist. In other cases, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the area to be treated, along with a sedative to relax you. Postoperative discomfort is normally controlled with medication.
