Yes, you read correctly.  The latest in breast augmentation surgery allows patients to get their desired breast implants in an hour or less.  Both sides.  How is this possible?  Well, in order for this to work, the patient must already have had breast implants for some time so that the scar capsule around the implant is intact.

Less Risk, Less Time, and Lower Cost

The less time in surgery the better as far as blood loss and tissue disruption is concerned.  To further make this breast augmentation a safer choice, local anesthesia is used rather than general anesthesia.

The use of local offers patients zero anesthesia risks that come with using general anesthesia, no nasty side effects such as grogginess, nausea, or dizziness, and a far less expensive breast augmentation.

The best part?  Many patients who have had this type of breast augmentation report that they feel well enough to return to work the very next day!

Since general anesthesia is used in most breast augmentation procedures, the price usually runs between $7,500 and $10,000 in most plastic surgery centers across the country.  This price is a reasonable amount for the procedure when you understand how much it costs for general anesthesia, use of a hospital facility, and the time and expertise of an anesthesiologist to administer and monitor during surgery.

With the local anesthesia one hour breast augmentation, the price of general anesthesia and all of the fees that come with it are eliminated.  Since the price for a surgeon’s time vary depending upon which surgeon does the procedure, call your plastic surgeon (make sure they are Board Certified in Plastic Surgery) to see how much this procedure would cost in your local area.

The surgery is fast because the surgeon doesn’t have to wait for the general anesthesia to begin working or for the patient to be stabilized.  They can numb the breasts and begin the procedure when the local anesthesia takes effect, usually within about 10 minutes.
