Do you perform rhinoplasty under local anaesthetic ?

Dr.Aslani: I prefer not to, except for the most minor tip revisions or small touch-ups. There is nothing wrong with local and sedation, however, for my experience patient feedback with this has not been very positive.Therefore I do most of rhinoplasty operations under general anestesia, except for minor revisional work to the tip. On the other hand, to perform rhinoplasty under local anestetic is widely practised and acceptable, I just prefer not to.
