Rhinoplasty Anesthesia

What kind of anesthesia is used for rhinoplasty? Do you have the option to choose between general and local anesthesia?

Local anesthesia is usually used. Local anesthesia combined with a sedative. I'm not sure if you can request for general anesthesia but I would not recommend this. Anesthesia is tricky. The less you use, the better off you will be.

I used local anesthesia during my own surgery and I felt fine. You have a vague awareness of what's going on but it does not hurt. The operation itself is not very painful. Sometimes, the healing is much more painful especially when pain-management mess lose their effectivity. Still, rhinoplasty is a low-risk surgery. Don't be afraid to have it done if you have an ugly nose. I promise, it will change your appearance dramatically!!!
