Buttock augmentation through the use of implants is considered as a more invasive procedure compared to the Brazilian butt lift. In this procedure, an incision will be made on the butt cheeks, and a pocket will be created to make way for the implants. Due to this, anesthesia is required in order to perform the surgery. There are different kinds of anesthesia, and a surgeon can choose to use one kind or a combination. Traditionally, most surgeons will use general anesthesia in this kind of surgery to make sure patients are completely asleep and don’t feel anything during the procedure. Although general anesthesia works well in making the patient sleep and numb, it also comes with side effects such as prolonged recovery, nausea, sleepiness, dry mouth, vomiting, and many others. Some may even have an allergic reaction to it. There are also some unfortunate cases when the patient doesn’t wake up from it. Patients who had general anesthesia may also be required to stay overnight to be fully monitored and to make sure they recover well enough to be discharged. When the anesthesia has finally worn off, patients can expect to feel soreness and a bit of pain from the incision made. Prescribed pain medications are given in order to help deal with the discomfort. It should be regularly taken to help patients feel better so the body can recover quickly. If you want to have a butt augmentation procedure with implants, it is important to clear out with your surgeon whether they will be using general anesthesia. If you already have a known reaction to anesthesia, it is best to inform the surgeon so they can be prepared and see if there are other alternatives they can use. Open communication with the surgeon will help with the safety of the patient.
