Twilight Anesthesia Information (conscious sedation) for Breast Augmentation

With twilight sedation, you will not be unconscious. You will be sedated to the point of being asleep, but you will not be unconscious or intubated. As with general anesthesiology, you should be sure it is administered a certified anesthesiologist or a certified nurse anesthetist (CRNA).

Smaller doses of the same or similar drugs used in general anesthesia will be used, causing only light sleep and less loss of memory as typical with general anesthesia.

Twilight sedation does not provide pain relief to the area being operated on. Local or regional anesthetics will be used as well. Twilight sedation involves a much shorter recovery and causes less, if any, nausea or vomiting.
