COST OF NOSE JOB UNDER LOCAL ANAESTHESIA
Rhinoplasty or nose job cost under Local anaesthesia is far less as compared to cost of nose job under general anaesthesia, where in the additional cost of hospital Stay, hospital OT charges, Anaesthesia charges, Anaesthesia medicines all add up.
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
We first start by giving pre - surgical medication following which we apply numbing cream to reduce the pain sensation of the skin to the needles. This numbing cream is applied over the nose and face for about 40 minutes
This is then followed by a series of minimal discomfort Local Anaesthesia injection along the surgical field to make your nose completely numb. Once the nose is completely senseless we proceed with the nose surgery just like any other surgery.
The advantages of the Rhinoplasty Surgery under Local Anaesthesia is that there is no need to get admitted in hospital, One can go back to their home immediately after the surgery with minimal pain or discomfort. Also since the anaesthesia given is a long acting, even after the surgery the pain is very minimal. since there is no general anaesthesia post effects, the recovery is also much faster than that of Rhinoplasty under General Anaesthesia.
