Ketamine is a medical-grade anaesthetic known as a “NMDA receptor antagonist”, which essentially interferes with the nerve cells ability to transmit pain-related messages to the brain. By doing so, it can minimize the symptoms of feelings of pain and discomfort to depression and anxiety. At Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery, we want your experience to be as comfortable as possible. Your IV Ketamine infusion therapy begins by hooking you up to our IV, which will be programmed to deliver small, carefully measured doses of ketamine directly into your bloodstream. You will be awake during this procedure and are unlikely to feel any discomfort during it. The number of treatments and dosage required to treat your individual symptoms will be predetermined between you and our specialist during your initial consultation.
