About Anesthesia

About Anesthesia

There are a variety of anesthesia methods available and the most appropriate one will be used depending on the nature of the procedure.
Pain is the common enemy of all patients, and our staff will strive to minimize pain during all treatments.
For anesthesia requiring general management, anesthesiologists from the Society of Anesthesiologists and the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) will be in charge of the anesthesia, and expert staff will support the management of the anesthesia.

Types of Anesthesia

Surface Anesthesia

For non-sugical treatments (various injection treatments, hair removal lasers, etc.)
Made by AstraZeneca in Sweden, Emra Cream, a skin surface anesthetic, contains 25 mg of lidocaine and 25 mg of prilocaine in 1 gram.
More potent anesthetic creams are also available, such as SM Cream 10.56% containing 105.6 mg of lidocaine in 1 gram.
These are creams that temporarily numb the nerves and reduce pain.
Cream application will be 1 hour before treatment.

Eye Drop Anesthesia

For double surgery, eyelid surgery, etc.
This is an eye drop anesthetic used during eyelid surgery.
It is used to relieve pain on the back of the eyelid.

Local Anesthesia

For various cosmetic surgeries and injections
A variety of local anesthetics such as 1% Xylocaine, 2% Xylocaine, and 0.25% Marcaine are used depending on the procedure.
A 30G (0.3mm diameter) to 34G (0.2mm diameter) ultra-fine needle is used to minimize pain at the time of insertion.
In addition, we adjust the pH of the injected anesthetic to reduce pain.
We will inject as slowly as possible which will mean much less pain.
We use the minimum amount of anesthesia necessary to avoid swelling.

The 34G needle is a special and confortable needle which nomally comes with an additional charge at other clinics but comes at no extra cost for patients at our clinic.
We always use new needles, up to three or four per surgery, which eliminates any pain caused by needle tip deterioration.
The 34G needle is an ultra-fine needle with an outer diameter of 0.2 mm and an inner lumen of 0.1 mm.
The walls of the needle are very thin compared to a standard needle.
This needle reduces pain, internal bleeding and swelling.

Nerve Block Anesthesia

For various cosmetic surgeries and injections
We can accurately identify the site of a larger nerve appropriate for anesthesia.
We can make various body areas pain-free by administering a small amount of local anesthetic into targeted larger nerves.
The needle used in our nerve block anesthesia is a 32G ultra-fine needle, so that the pain during insertion is minimized.
This is a useful method for facial procedures such as Botox and hyaluronic acid injections.
An ultra-fine needle is used for nerve block anesthesia, and it is replaced with a new needle after each insertion, which eliminates any pain caused by deterioration of the needle tip.

Epidural Anesthesia

For breast augmentation, liposuction, etc.
A local anesthetic is administered through a gap in the spine to block the spinal nerves.
It is an effective anesthetic method for breast augmentation and liposuction.
This method of anesthesia allows you to choose your own implant size during the breast augmentation procedure.
In liposuction, when epidural anesthesia is used, the amount of local anesthesia administered can be greatly reduced, allowing for faster and safer post-operative recovery.
Additional doses of epidural can be administered, making it an effective method of anesthesia for post-operative pain relief.

Intravenous Anesthesia

For various cosmetic surgeries and injections
An intravenous drip is administered into a vein, from which a continuous dose of anesthetic is administered to eliminate pain and keep the patient asleep.
The treatment is performed in conjunction with local anesthesia.
We use a confortable anesthetic so that when you wake up you recover quickly and can go home after surgery.
Thin 22G to 24G cannula needles are selected to reduce pain and discomfort.

Intravenous anesthetics include propofol, midazolam, flumazenil, ketamine, droperidol, fentanyl, remifentanyl, and dexmedetomidine, and our anesthesiologists provide the optimal combination of sedation and analgesia.
Each operating room is equipped with several syringe pumps to accurately control the depth of anesthesia.

Anesthesia with Nitrous Oxide

This is a method for reducing pain and consciousness for a short time by Nitrous Oxide inhalation.
It is sometimes used for people who are afraid of needles.
It may also be used for short surgeries and procedures.

General Anesthesia

For contouring, nasal septum extension, osteotomy, etc.
Anesthetic gas inhalation is a way to reduce pain and consciousness.
When we use this method of anesthesia, we ensure that the airway is secure and the operation is carried out safely.
We always use a low amount of anesthesia which allows for a quicker recovery, and our cosmetic surgery procedures generally do not require an overnight stay.
It is equipped with sevoflurane, an inhalation anesthetic, rocuronium, a muscle relaxant, and sugammadex, a muscle relaxant recovery agent. Our anesthesiologist will provide the optimal combination of sedation and analgesia.
