Rhinoplasty Recovery Guide 👃 - 17 - Can Rhinoplasty Operation Be Performed Without General Anesthesia?

Is The Nose Aesthetic Surgery Performed Under Local Anesthesia?

Is it ok to perform open rhinoplasty under local anesthesia?

Nasal aesthetic surgeries are performed under general anesthesia as a standard and local anesthetic drugs are routinely injected into different regions on the nose. That is, both general anesthesia and local anesthesia are performed at the same time. Local anesthesia reduces blood loss during surgery and provides us with more comfortable working conditions. This, in turn, reduces the postoperative pain. Nasal cosmetic surgery can be performed under local anesthesia alone. For example, general anesthesia may not be given when two small operations, such as limited nasal hump rasp, nasal aesthetic, nose tip lifting or nose tip plasty are performed at the same time. Injection of local anesthetic drugs into each side of the curved nose, with advanced septum deviation and septum deviation at the back, may not be possible and the duration of the surgery is long. In these cases, the choice of general anesthesia is the comfort of the patient and we also make it easier to perform the surgery. In addition, general anesthesia can be performed under local anesthesia in the presence of a systemic disease that constitutes an obstacle.

Are the risks of anesthesia increasing in busy and crowded hospitals?

In hospitals where we plan to operate, we need to be careful not to have an intensive care specialist apart from an anesthesiologist, to have sufficient intensive care conditions, not to be a busy hospital. The hospital equipment and surgical equipment in sufficient density to the surgical works; the risks of anesthesia may not increase. I would like you to ask us if you have a problem with our hospitals, internet sites and you have a problem with your mind.

While local anesthesia and sedation offer several benefits, it's important to note that not every rhinoplasty candidate is suitable for this approach. Factors such as the complexity of the procedure, patient preferences, and the surgeon's recommendation all play a role in determining the most appropriate anesthesia method.

In conclusion, rhinoplasty can indeed be performed without general anesthesia, thanks to the availability of local anesthesia and sedation. The choice of anesthesia depends on various factors, and individuals considering rhinoplasty should discuss their options thoroughly with their surgeon.
