What It’s Like to Undergo General Anesthesia

Published by Aubrey Sohaney

So you’ve just booked your rhinoplasty or liposuction in Naperville, congratulations! Now, it’s only natural for you to begin thinking about the logistics of the surgery, including what it will be like to go under general anesthesia. Whether it’s your first time or you’ve undergone it in the past, many people still get a bit nervous about the idea of it.

Look to the Facts

Understanding the facts can help you feel more confident about general anesthesia. There is a 0.01-0.016 percent chance of a fatal complication from general anesthesia, and this includes for patients who undergo emergency surgeries, were older or for those who are in poor health. Risk factors for negatively reacting to general anesthesia include overall health, weight, smoking, sickness and age. Make sure that you are honest with your doctor about the medications that you have been taking to help them better understand how your body would react to being put under.

On Your Surgery Day

On the day of your surgery, you will meet with a nurse to discuss preoperative procedures and then you’ll be taken to the operating room. From there, you’ll meet with the anesthesiologist and surgeon to discuss the surgery. They will then give you an IV drip or an injection to help you relax and go to sleep. Before you know it, you’ll wake up from your liposuction in Naperville in the recovery room.

You’re in great hands with our entire team at CCLS! For any questions or concerns, always feel free to contact our team.

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
