What kind of anesthesia will be used?

The type of anesthesia varies with each procedure. 

For some procedures, only local anesthesia or local anesthesia with intravenous (IV) sedation is needed.  This method will allow you to be awake, but insensitive to any pain. 

The anesthesia used in your operation will depend on the type and extent of the procedure(s), your age, and the physician's preference.
