Rhinoplasty under Local Anaesthesia - It means One is awake during the surgery with very mild sedation and reduction of anxiety by using oral sedatives. In local anaesthesia, with the help of regional anaesthesia, we numb only the required the surgical site, in-cases of nose job / rhinoplasty its the nose. The nose and its surrounding structures are supplied by a series of nerve network, which provide us with al the sensory sensation. the primary aim is to temporarily block all these nerves so that you do not feel any pain during the surgery. the injections are very similar to dental anaesthesia that is given for treatments such RCT or a simple tooth removal.

PREPARING FOR LOCAL ANAESTHESIA RHINOPLASTY SURGERY
Dr Rahul Gogoi specializes in performing Rhinoplasty under Local Anaesthesia, rhinoplasty also known as a nose job, is a surgical procedure performed to enhance the appearance or function of the nose.Rhinoplasty under Local Anaesthesia is performed using local anesthesia to numb the area around the nose and the other areas where the surgery is indicated. Local Anaesthesia rhinoplasty is often decided based on the internal anatomy of the nose, the nose internal structures should be relatively devoid of any significant abnormality.
Visiting Dr Rahul Gogoi for Rhinoplasty:
Prior to the surgery, Dr Rahul will have a detailed consultation and examination with you, He will discuss about your expectation and the actual possible result that can be achieved. Dr Rahul will take your Pre-operative photographs for reference.
On the day of the surgery, the you will arrive at the surgical facility and get prepared for the procedure.
The surgery involves cleaning the surgical site, marking the nose to indicate the planned changes, and ensuring that you are comfortable and ready for the surgery.
Administration of Local Anesthesia: Dr Rahul uses a small needle of 30 gauge diameter to inject a local anesthetic, made up of combination of Prilocaine , lidocaine with epinephrine, into the specific areas of the nose that require numbing. The epinephrine constricts blood vessels, reducing bleeding during the procedure and allowing for better visualization of the surgical site.
Once the local anesthesia has taken effect, you will feel no pain or discomfort during the surgery. However, you may still be aware of some pressure or movement sensations.
Type of rhinoplasty incision / approach:
After the anesthesia has taken effect, trhinoplasty begins with making small incisions in inconspicuous locations. These incisions may be made inside the nostrils (closed rhinoplasty) or along the columella (the strip of tissue between the nostrils, in an open rhinoplasty). The choice of incision technique depends on the specific goals of the surgery and the internal structural shapes and support
Once the incisions are made, Dr Rahul carefully lifts the skin and soft tissues, to visualize the nasal framework. Following this Dr Rahul modifies the nasal bones, cartilage, and other tissues to achieve the desired changes.
The specific techniques used to reshape the nose vary depending on the individual case. Common procedures include:
Cartilage modification: it involves trimming, reshaping, or reposition the nasal cartilage to refine the shape of the tip or bridge of the nose.
Osteotomy: In some cases, the Dr Rahul may need to perform osteotomies, which involve carefully breaking and repositioning the nasal bones. This technique is used to correct issues such as a crooked nose or a wide nasal bridge. Dr Rahul Specialises in using advanced Piezo surgery to cut the bone precisely. Dr Rahul is one of the few surgeon in the world to use ultrasonic rhinoplasty in all his nose surgeries
Septoplasty: If there is a deviated septum (the wall that separates the nasal passages), a septoplasty may be performed to improve breathing and correct any structural abnormalities.
Tip refinement: Dr Rahul uses various suturing techniques or grafts to refine and reshape the nasal tip, creating a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Closure and Recovery: Once the necessary changes have been made, Dr Rahul carefully repositions the skin and soft tissues back over the nasal framework. The incisions are then closed with dissolvable sutures, and a splint or external tape may be applied to support the new shape of the nose and help minimize swelling.
After the surgery is complete, you will be monitored in a recovery area for a short period to ensure you are stable. One may experience some mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the days following the procedure, but these symptoms can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses.
Dr Rahul will than provide detailed post-operative instructions, including how to care for the surgical site, what medications to take, and when to attend follow-up appointments. It is crucial for you to follow these instructions to promote proper healing and achieve optimal results.
Postoperative Follow-up: You will typically have several follow-up appointments with the surgeon in the weeks and months following the surgery. During these visits, Dr Rahul will monitor the healing process, remove any sutures, assess the results, and address any concerns or questions the patient may have.
Over time, the swelling will gradually subside, and the final results of the rhinoplasty will become more apparent. It is important to note that the complete resolution of swelling and the achievement of final results may take several months, or even up to a year, depending on the individual.
