How do I know if general anesthesia is safe for me? I read a lot regarding deaths of patients during rhinoplasty.

Thank you for your question. Although many fear anesthesia and ask to avoid it, modern anesthesia is exceedingly safe with the risk of a serious unfavorable occurrence falling in the 1 in 800,000-1,200,000 range which means anesthesia is safely administered in greater than 99.99% of cases according to recent studies. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
general anaesthesia is the safest option for you and is used routinely for rhinoplasty in most developed countries and is the safest option with the least risk of airway problems
