Anesthesia for aesthetic surgery has changed along with the development in plastic surgery during the last two decades. This is the first report of a large series of anesthesia conducted for aesthetic surgery in Israel. The article presents the experience of ten thousand procedures performed during the last four years. Although the prevalence of extensive surgery and complicated patients has increased, no anesthetic-related mortality and only minor morbidity have occurred. Methods of anesthesia and prevention of complications are described. Specific approaches for some potentially dangerous procedures are discussed.
