    Nose Job

    Hello ladies. I have decided to do a nose job finally. I have a deviated septum so I need to fix that and get my nostrils smaller. The question is what anesthesia do you recommend me doing? I know general anesthesia is the best in my case my doctor also said that but I'm paranoid from general anesthesia. I hear that some complications may arise and people may not wake up from it. Anyway has anyone done a nose job by local anesthesia? I would like to know how does it feel being awake and having a surgery. Is it scary ? I need all the details if possible. Thanks

    I think your team of doctors are best to advise you on this issue.

    Gaining popularity now that the treatment is more successful, are surgical procedures using deep meditation, or hypnosis combined with local anesthesia and pain meds.
    It's been around for years, but more surgeons are accepting this method now, so I've read.

    I suggest if you're interested in these alternative methods, speak to your doctors for referrals and additional information about whether you're even a candidate for this.

      I second atskitty2's post. You need to discuss your options with your doctors. Anyhow, I am sure you're going to be happy with the results. Having a nice nose is very important and definitely worth paying for: at least, in my opinion. I am sure you'll be very happy once it's done.

        I haven't had it done but I worked for a plastic surgeon and have seen many done! I recommend taking arnica (available at a health food store) 1 week before and after your proceedure...check with your doctor first of course...this will minimize bruising. Stock up on protein shakes & straws because you won't feel like chewing much food and the protein will speed recovery. Buy a small bag of petite peas to use as an ice pack. The pain from a nose job is minimal...the worst thing is the packing and they'll take it out the next day.
