General anesthesia concern
Hi, I recommend seeing your family doctor to get medical clearance for the surgery. If there are any health issues, these should be worked up prior to surgery so that all those involved feel comfortable that you in the best shape possible prior to surgery.

Undergoing general anesthesia for rhinoplasty with high cholesterol
Before undergoing any cosmetic surgery, it's best to be cleared by your primary care physician for chest pain and high cholesterol. After that has been completed, then consider the rhinoplasty procedure. In our practice, we perform all rhinoplasty procedures under general anesthesia by a board-certified physician anesthesiologist for patient safety and comfort. Most patients will have some degree of conscious awareness under twilight sedation.
