RHINOPLASTY surgery must ALWAYS be performed under the strict control of AN ANESTHESIOLOGIST during the entire duration of the PROCEDURE. The anesthesiologist must control the heart rate, respiratory function, temperature and the replacement of liquids.
RHINOPLASTY surgery lasts 2-3 hours and perform it under local anesthesia without the presence of an anesthesiologist, it is imprudent. Staying two hours without being able to move, noticing that some blood falls into the throat, and seeing a surgeon who is operating, is not pleasant. It is false that local anesthesia lacks risks. Medications used in local anesthesia can cause cardiac arrhythmias, as can the patient’s stress if awake during surgery.
It is not advisable to perform Rhinoplasty with the use of exclusive local anesthesia without the presence of an anesthesiologist. If there is not an anesthesiologist in the operating room, it is unsafe.
