ANESTHESIA

Various types of anesthetic can be used in Aesthetic Surgery:

  • • Local anesthesia
  • • Local anesthesia with intravenous sedation
  • • Loco-regional anesthesia
  • • General anesthesia


As our patients are generally in a good state of health , the choice of anesthetic can be adapted to each particular case.

The following preoperative examinations are required: blood test ( including a coagulation test), chest X-ray, and electrocardiogram. If any irregularity is detected, we study it thoroughly.

Recent pharmacological advances have allowed the use of short-acting  drugs with improved patient monitoring.

In the operating room, the anesthesiologist monitors cardiac and oxygen saturation at all times. Although these surgical procedures could be performed on an outpatient basis, our priority is patient safety and the avoidance of any unnecessary risks. The short stay unit at the new Hospital Quirón, which is on the same floor as the operating theater, has twenty rooms for patients undergoing outpatient surgery.

Thanks to these preventive measures, the risks of anesthesia are minimized.
