Personalized Anesthesia Care
We know one of your biggest concerns about plastic surgery is your anesthesia. At the Newport Center for Special Surgery, safety is our first concern. Thus, we have developed the Rest-Assure anesthesia program. With Rest-Assure, you will be offered a face to face consultation days or weeks ahead of your surgery with the very same board-certified anesthesiologist, Dr. H. Rand Scott, who will take care of you the day of your surgery. Your personal anesthesia doctor will discuss your anesthesia options, review your pre and post operative instructions, and develop a custom anesthetic plan for you. Our patients find this consultation removes much of the uncertainty about their anesthesia experience.
Rest-Assure also means you will be offered a plan to minimize post operative pain and nausea. Our Rest-Assure program has consistently seen pain and nausea rates lower than the national benchmark data.
Anesthesia Techniques That Help You Recover Faster
At Newport Center for Special Surgery, we know that every detail about your cosmetic surgery is important. Our Enhanced Recovery Protocol starts with both your surgeon and anesthesiologist performing a thorough evaluation of your health history and then fine tuning medications to prepare for the procedure. Your anesthesia doctor will ask to meet you in person before the day of surgery to explain and review the details of the care plan. On the day of surgery, you will be given antibiotics well before surgery to help reduce infection. Anesthesia techniques will be used to help keep you warm and reduce both pain and nausea. Techniques will be used to help you sleep well with anesthesia but still wake up quickly with a clear head. Before and after surgery, we will carefully instruct you on the details you will need to follow at home to make your recovery smooth and safe.
