Setting Your Mind At Ease: Dispelling A Common Breast Augmentation Fear

Conveniently Located to Serve Southfield, MI

Breast augmentations in Michigan are reaching record highs, as are they all over the country, with nearly 300,000 performed in the U.S. annually. For many women, undergoing a breast augmentation could be life changing for them — offering them heightened confidence in themselves, their bodies and their relationships. However, many times, our fears of the unknown get the best of us. Most of the time, these fears are very common and very rational. Particularly the fear of going under anesthesia. If you are considering a breast augmentation in Michigan but are letting this fear stop you, read on for information that may put you at ease, and help you determine if a breast augmentation is right for you.

Fear Of Going Under

While many folks feel a certain amount of anxiety about going under anesthesia regardless of the procedure, some view breast augmentation surgery, or plastic surgery in general, to be of particular concern if it is deemed not medically necessary. But the truth is, anesthesia — as the medical industry as a whole — has come a long way and is safer and more common than ever before. In fact, anesthesia carries an incredibly low risk when performed by a highly-trained, board-certified anesthesiologist. Which is exactly how it is done at Michigan Cosmetic Surgery. In truth, for healthy patients, going under anesthesia is about as dangerous as pregnancy in a healthy woman. Therefore, general anesthesia is considered very safe. However, there are risks to any medical procedure. As such, you should talk with both your surgeon and anesthesiologist in depth prior to the day of surgery. You’ll want to be sure you are forthcoming about any medications and herbal supplements you take, how much alcohol you consume, how much you exercise, any allergies you have and if you use any drugs. All of these factors can affect a patient’s tolerance to sedation. Further, you’ll want to share any prior experiences with anesthesia or any specific concerns you may have. At Michigan Cosmetic Surgery, our patients’ health and safety is our number one priority. Our team carefully monitors every patients’ heart rage, oxygen levels and blood pressure throughout every procedure. Your pre-operative evaluation will further ensure that you are completely healthy to be administered anesthesia.
