Awake Plastic Surgery

Awake Plastic Surgery

Dr. Millicent Geers

Awake Plastic Surgery, also known as Awake Cosmetic Surgery, is cosmetic surgery done while you are awake! You may or may not have some sedating medication to go along with the local anesthesia (numbing medication) during your procedure. The numbing medication makes you comfortable during surgery. The oral sedation is used to add an element of relaxation. Awake Plastic Surgery avoids the risks of general anesthesia. 

Not all Plastic Surgeons have been trained to perform Awake Plastic Surgery and therefore they will not offer this alternative.

Some Plastic Surgeons will criticize or disparage awake surgery techniques because they cannot perform them or are they are inexperienced with these techniques. Dr. Millicent Geers was trained in Awake Surgery. She has safely and successfully performed thousands of cosmetic procedures using the Awake Surgery technique. Some of the procedures Dr. Geers performs with the awake technique include Awake Liposuction, Awake Breast Augmentation, Awake Tummy Tuck, Awake Brazilian Butt Lift, Awake Back Lift, Awake Hand Lift, Awake Facial Rejuvenation, Awake Arm Lift, and Awake Labiaplasty. Dr. Geers offers Awake Plastic Surgery to ensure that you have options when it comes to the type of anesthesia you want with your body contouring procedure. The “awake technique” allows you to avoid the risks of general anesthesia. 

For some people, Awake Plastic Surgery may not be the route.

There are some patients who do not want to be aware of any aspect of their procedure or who have difficulties getting numb with local anesthesia. For these patients, general anesthesia is the better alternative. As Dr. Geers has been trained to perform surgery with either local anesthesia and/or general anesthesia, she can offer you the anesthesia plan that is best for you. Dr. Geers will help you determine which type of anesthesia is best for you. Call 719-633-5255 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Geers.
