General Anesthesia for Gynecomastia Surgery

THE ART OF ANESTHESIA

Gynecomastia Anesthesiologist

Dr. Randy Gaynor
Anesthesiologist

Many patients voice a concern over what type of anesthesia is to be used for the gynecomastia surgical procedure. Most surgeons will opt for general anesthesia unless the patient objection is great and even then unless a medical condition prevents it, most surgeons will not concede. It is important for the patient to understand why general anesthesia is the best in almost all cases. Gynecomastia can be a three to four hour procedure or longer if the patient decides to have additional surgery at the same time such as liposuction of the flanks (love handles) and or abdomen. Keeping the patient comfortable is of utmost concern, and general anesthesia is the best way to achieve this.
General anesthesia has come a long way in recent years, risks have been greatly minimized. You hear of surgical procedures on babies that can last for hours, this is possible because of the great advances in technique and the drugs involved. Of course it is important to verify that the anesthesiologist is board certified as is Randy Gaynor, M.D. who is the anesthesiologist on staff at Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center.

At your initial consultation with Dr. Delgado, he will discuss anesthesia with you, he will want to know if you have had any other surgical procedures in the past, and if so what type of anesthesia. If you proceed with scheduling surgery, Dr. Delgado will discuss anesthesia with you again at your pre operative appointment which is usually two weeks prior to surgery. If you have a history of any possible complications you will also receive a call from Dr. Gaynor, who will ask questions in detail and may want reports from other physicians who have treated you. If you do not present with any known complications, you will still be receiving a call from Dr. Gaynor the night before surgery. He will go over your medical history in detail and will explain what to expect during surgery.
