Rhinoplasty Under Local Anesthesia?
I am nervous about anesthesia and wanted to know if I would be able to do a type of anesthesia that doesn't require you to be put to sleep for a Rhinoplasty. Also, I know I need to go in for an official consultation, but I wanted some feedback on my nose and what I could do to adjust it and therefore enhance my face.
I don’t want anything too invasive and was trying to avoid breaking the bridge. I was looking at possibly having the tip of my nose sculpted and maybe fillers on my bridge for my profile. I just wanted to know if I wanted a straighter bridge and wanted to fix my depressed tip, that I believe I have, would I be able to use a twilight anesthesia? Any suggestions?
