In-office plastic surgery procedures
Thursday, January 7, 2016
A growing number of plastic surgery procedures are now performed in-office under local anesthetic. It’s a fact that’s been well-received by patients and medical experts alike.
In-office plastic surgery procedures offer patients seeking services – ranging from breast reconstruction and liposuction to skin cancer treatment and facelifts – an outpatient medical experience that features enhanced recovery, affordable costs, and increased value as it relates to time.
“There are many procedures that we are now doing in the office under local anesthetic,” said Dr. James Zasuly, a plastic surgeon with BayCare Clinic Plastic Surgery. “There are many advantages. The biggest advantage is time. All the hassle associated with general anesthesia such as getting ready for surgery – which can take a couple hours – recovery, recovering from the anesthetic, you don’t have to deal with those.”
A key advantage is cost, Zasuly said. “The cost is greatly reduced by doing it in the office and not paying for an operating room and not paying for anesthesia.”
Liposuction and facelifts in-office, too
To the delight of many patients, BayCare Clinic Plastic Surgery provides liposuction and facelift procedures in-office under local anesthetic.
“Liposuction is still considered the gold standard for reducing fatty deposits and common treatment areas such as the abdomen, the hips, the love handles, some of the thigh areas, can be treated in the office under local (anesthetic),” Zasuly said. “The results have been fantastic.”
The in-office facelift also provides patients with positive outcomes, he added. “Results have been great and the customer satisfaction has been fantastic.”
