Risks of General Anesthesia

General Anesthesia comes with some risk such as respiratory depression and impairment of protective airway reflexes if not performed under proper guidance. There are few things which must be taken care of such as, consent must be undertaken from the patient to find out any allergy to anesthesia, the regulated dose must be administered, and airway blockage must be checked. There may be chances of dizziness and impairs protective airway reflexes which may cause aspiration of stomach contents. If these things are not properly undertaken, the general anesthesia can lead to problematic breathing pattern which can result in complications.

Tumescent Anesthesia

New and advanced techniques in terms on delivering anesthesia is been made use of, one of them is Tumescent Anesthesia which helps in delivering local anesthesia that enhances safety as it leads to tissue expansion and high anesthetic dilution in order to attain widespread regional anesthesia of skin and hypodermal tissue. This leads to resulting swollen and firm tissue. The very dilute lidocaine and epinephrine are penetrated which is administered in order to achieve more or less the same result without undergoing the risk of intrinsic risks of local anesthesia and blood loss.

The small cannula form tunnels in the intravenous tissue and permit for more operative and less distressing fat removal than the large cannula.

This new and advanced tumescent liposuction technique leads to lesser bleeding as compared to the older liposuction techniques. As a result, there is a loss of only 12 mL of whole blood per liter of unwanted fat extracted during the tumescent liposuction in Melbourne process which is less than 1%.

Server and rare complications are more common with general anesthesia than local anesthesia and much less with Slim Lipo than traditional liposuction. More though adverse allergic drug reactions can also lead to more complicated situations such as cardiac arrest, permanent nerve damage. If a proper dose of anesthesia is not induced then it can lead to aspiration pneumonia which is quite common and can also cause brain damage as an improper dose of anesthesia can cause lack of oxygen in the blood flow.
