Brazilian Butt lift under local anesthetics versus general anesthesia.


If you are considering getting a Brazilian Butt Lift and have concerns about being under general anesthesia, you may be considering a local anesthetic instead. However, you should really take into consideration the risk associated with having such an invasive procedure under local anesthetic.

Under local anesthetics the patient will still feel some pain. Local anesthesia is used to only numb the area the surgeon is working on, the patient will be fully awake and alert, for some people the site of the procedure is more traumatizing than the actual pain of the surgery. Also local anesthesia wears off faster than general anesthesia,  so depending on the length of time  the procedure will take, the doctor may need to keep reapplying more local anesthesia. So before you undergo an invasive procedure like a Brazilian Butt Lift under local anesthetics think of the short and long term effects. If you have any further concerns be sure to see a board certified plastic surgeons such as the ones at PREMIERE Center Tampa and PREMIERE Center Miami.
