Isnâ€™t local anesthesia better? The short answer is â€śnoâ€ťâ€¦..
Many patients are concerned about anesthesia for their upcoming surgery for gynecomastia breast reduction, as they should be as this is one of the most important aspects of any surgery. Anesthesia has come a long way in recent years, the dangers that we have all heard about in news stories has been greatly minimized. There are many cases these days where babies need to have major surgery that can last several hours, if the anesthesiologist can make surgery safe for them, it is safe for you too. However not understanding how anesthesia for your particular surgery is going to work can make for needless apprehension.
During your consultation with Dr. Delgado, for male breasts reduction surgery, also known as “moobs”, he will explain in detail everything you can expect to take place; before, during and after your surgery. Dr. Delgado does not perform gynecomastia breast surgery under local anesthesia, even for his less invasive “Light Procedure“.Â Dr. DelgadoÂ wants to keep the patient as comfortable as possible, and therefore he has Dr. Randy Gaynorwho is a board certified anesthesiologist, assist him in surgery at his private surgery center, Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center. There can be exceptions to this preference, but it would be after consultation at either his San Francisco office or Marin with the patient, Dr. Delgado and Dr. Gaynor. Dr. Gaynor wants all of Dr. Delgadoâ€™s patients to know that he is available to speak on the phone or have a personal consultation with him to discuss any aspect of anesthesia. All patients receive a phone call from him prior to surgery to discuss their medical history and any previous experiences with anesthesia.
