Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas Offers Milder Anesthesia for Outpatient Procedures
Date:3/18/2010

General anesthesia just isn't the best option for cosmetic and plastic surgery patients. The Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas provides their patients with a more suitable option called TIVA.

Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 18, 2010 -- General anesthesia is well-known and well-used in cosmetic surgery procedures. It is also one of the top concerns for people considering plastic surgery. TIVA, or Total Intravenous Anesthesia, then, is a technique now used by the Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas to make both the anesthesia and recovery process easier for clients.

General anesthesia can cause sore throats, nausea, impaired mental function for several hours post-surgery, inadequate pain control and even risk of pulmonary embolisms and life-threatening malignant hyperthermia. TIVA involves medication given completely through an IV, rather than a breathing tube, eliminating any sore throats and significantly reducing the chance of nausea and other serious issues. In addition, TIVA provides quicker recovery – about one hour rather than several hours – as well as superior pain control with fewer medications.

“With TIVA, our clients still undergo a complete review of their medical history as well as necessary labs and studies prior to surgery,” said Dr. Leo Lapuerta, director of Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas and board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston. “However, this milder option eliminates the need for a breathing tube, ventilator and anesthesia gas, and it reduces many risks associated with general anesthesia. It also makes recovery much easier for patients who need to get back to their busy lives and can do so comfortably and independently.”
