What type of anesthesia is used during rhinoplasty?
I am interested in Asian Rhinoplasty. I am nervous about being awake during the procedure. What type of anesthesia is given to patients during rhinoplasty?
We use general anesthesia during rhinoplasty. With general anesthesia, the board-certified anesthesiologist can monitor you at all times to make certain you do not wake up during the procedure. As well, we provide you with medication through the IV to minimize any postoperative nausea following general anesthesia.
