You’ll need anesthesia during your rhinoplasty surgery procedure. Before your surgery, you’ll discuss your anesthesia options with an experienced medical professional, who will recommend a proper method for you. One option is sedation anesthesia.
When you are given sedation anesthesia, sedatives and pain relievers are being introduced into your system through an IV. While the sedatives are causing you to enter a more relaxed and sleepy state, the pain relief medication is serving to numb you to pain. Local anesthetics are also often used with this.
This combination makes nasal surgery more comfortable and painless. You may either be asleep or awake, depending on the level of sedation.
For more on your rhinoplasty anesthesia options, arrange an informative consultation by contacting our office. Rhinoplasty specialist Dr. Paul Nassif will be available to discuss these options in further detail.
