BACKGROUND Large area local anesthesia (LALA) has been recommended for decreasing localized pain and shortening discharge time after breast augmentation surgery. However, quantifiable, objective outcome data for evaluation of the effectiveness of LALA in aesthetic plastic surgery procedures have not yet been reported. OBJECTIVE We conducted a retrospective patient chart review to determine whether irrigation of the submuscular pocket with bupivacaine in retropectoral breast augmentation… 
Marcaine: A Dependable Local Anesthetic for Breast Augmentation
TLDR
A double-blind, randomized study to compare the effects of placing 10 mL 0.25% Marcaine with epinephrine into 1 or both breast pockets of each patient undergoing bilateral breast augmentation and to assess the safety of using Marcaine for this purpose.
Quantitative effects of tumescent infiltration and bupivicaine injection in decreasing postoperative pain in submuscular breast augmentation.
TLDR
This is the first report to quantitatively show a pain reduction regimen that is effective in significantly decreasing postoperative pain and decreasing the use of narcotics in the recovery room.
Combined usage of intercostal nerve block and tumescent anaesthesia: An effective anaesthesia technique for breast augmentation
TLDR
Combined usage of the intercostal nerve block and tumescent anaesthesia effectively reduces pain during breast augmentation and keeps patient conscious enables meeting their requests during operation, contributing to increased satisfaction.
Efficacy of Pocket Irrigation With Bupivacaine and Ketorolac in Breast Augmentation: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Breast augmentation is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure performed in the United States. The optimal approach to postoperative pain management in these patients, however, has yet to be
Breast augmentation and augmentation-mastopexy with local anesthesia and intravenous sedation.
TLDR
Breast augmentation with or without mastopexy can be performed safely, with minimal discomfort and complications, by employing local anesthesia with intravenous sedation, and although augmentation-mastopExy requires more operating time than augmentation alone, the recovery times are comparable.
Pectoralis and Serratus Fascial Plane Blocks Each Provide Early Analgesic Benefits Following Ambulatory Breast Cancer Surgery: A Retrospective Propensity-Matched Cohort Study
TLDR
Pectoralis and serratus blocks were each associated with a reduction in postoperative in-hospital opioid consumption and PONV compared with conventional opioid-based analgesia after ambulatory breast cancer surgery.
ESSENTIALS OF PREOPERATIVE ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT
567e Breast augmentation is the most common aesthetic surgical procedure, with more than 300,000 performed in 2011.1 Choices of incisions, pocket plane, and implant characteristics, including shape,
Anesthesia in Breast Surgery
TLDR
The author discusses the surgical facility; preoperative evaluation, assessment, and preparation; anesthesia for aesthetic breast surgery; anesthesia techniques; considerations for pain management; recovery and discharge.
Selective ultrasound guided pectoral nerve targeting in breast augmentation: How to spare the brachial plexus cords?
TLDR
It is shown that 10 ml of an injected solution is sufficient to stain all the medial and lateral pectoral nerve branches without a proximal extension to the cords of the brachial plexus.
To infiltrate or not? Acute effects of local anaesthetic in breast surgery
TLDR
This study seeks to examine whether wound infiltration of bupivacaine (0.25%) decreases post‐operative pain and analgesic use, without increasing post-operative complications.

TLDR
It is revealed that thoracic epidural anesthesia was feasible, effective, and even better than conventional alternative anesthetic techniques for breast augmentation.
A randomized trial of postoperative wound irrigation with local anesthetic for pain after cesarean delivery.
TLDR
The continuous local anesthetic infusion system appears to be effective in reducing postoperative morphine use after cesarean delivery and there were no significant differences in patient demographics or visual analog pain scores at any time interval between the bupivacaine versus the placebo group.

TLDR
Applying motion and time study principles to analysis and refinement of instrumentation and surgical techniques resulted in a substantial reduction in perioperative morbidity and a simpler, shorter 24-hour return to full normal activity for 96 percent of the patients undergoing breast augmentation in group 3 compared with groups 1 and 2.
