Channel 6 interview on awake breast augmentation

“Awake Breast Augmentation Surgery”

If you were up early this morning, you might have seen yours truly on channel 6, at 6:45.
I had been interviewed by WKMG’s Jessica Sanchez on Monday. We discussed the controversy regarding “awake breast augmentation” surgery.
Unfortunately, only a very short bit of the TV interview was used. They didn’t even mention one of the most important points: that many of the providers who use this technique are not board-certified plastic surgeons, don’t have hospital privileges, and can’t get proper anesthesiologists or CRNA’s to work with them. Some don’t even have any surgical residency training at all – they just took a weekend course or two.
It’s a huge legal loophole. And it’s bad news for Floridians.
Patient safety is my #1 priority. Having an anesthesiologist present, to monitor all the vital signs and make sure you are comfortable and breathing safely is a key part of patient safety. I think that skipping this, just to save a little money, is foolishly cutting corners in a dangerous way.
