RHINOPLASTY SURGERY UNDER LOCAL ANESTHESIA?
Yes, Rhinoplasty Surgery can be performed under a local anesthetic! Though, general anesthesia is used most of the time, local anesthesia is only preferred when the patient’s nose is getting minimal reshaping, such as “tip work.”

The patient breathes on their own, the rest of the body remains cognitive and motor functions remain unaltered. While under local anesthesia, the patient can carry out an entire conversation and feel no pain or discomfort. The following video demonstrates the performance of nose surgery under local anesthesia.
