Local Anaesthesia

Local Anaesthesia refers to injecting a numbing medication into the area to be operated on, so that surgery is not felt at all. It is limited to a small area only, so is often used for small procedures such as skin lesion removal, some facial surgery, or breast surgery. Sedation may be used with it for comfort and relaxation, or local anaesthesia may be used with longer acting numbing medications to provide pain relief after surgery with a General Anaesthetic.
