Breast Augmentation with Low Heart Rate
To ensure you have the safest possible procedure, and to minimize any anxiety for you, I'd recommend a few other measures. Ensure your doctor's surgical facility is fully accredited by a respected organization such as the Joint Commission or the AAAASF, and that your surgeon has privileges in at least one reputable hospital nearby. Look into the background of your anesthesiologist; you may want to work with an M.D. anesthesiologist, knowing he or she is a fully-trained doctor. You might also be interested to find out how long your anesthesiologist and plastic surgeon have practiced together. Finally, if the thought of having general anesthesia bothers you, choose a plastic surgeon who offers IV or "twilight" sedation for breast augmentation. For many people, the thought of being lightly asleep during surgery without the need for a breathing tube is comforting.
