Dr. Jay Calvert M.D. – Anesthesia for Rhinoplasty

  1. 1. Dr. Jay Calvert M.D. – Anesthesia for Rhinoplasty Rhinoplasty is performed all over the world with multiple different anesthesia options available. Some of the options available include general anesthesia, local, regional anesthesia, and intravenous anesthesia. The most experienced plastic surgeons recommend general anesthesia for rhinoplasty surgeries because this form of pain block is the most comfortable as well as the safest option for the patient. Dr. Jay Calvert MD recommends using general anesthesia. During general anesthesia the patient is sleeping. Patients under general anesthesia are relaxed, comfortable and are unable to feel or experience anything that is going on around them until the surgery has been completed. This method ensures that the patient is not in a stressed state during surgery. Their blood flow is relaxed and bleeding will be to a minimum. They will wake up refreshed with no memory of the procedure. “It is my humble opinion that general anesthesia should be the anesthetic of choice for the majority of rhinoplasty operations. This allows for a smooth operation without major fluctuations in blood pressure (that can cause bleeding), a pleasant experience for the patient, and the highest level of safety throughout the procedure. Some smaller cases with less work to be done may be right for local anesthesia with sedation, but I find this to be the minority of cases. In our practice, we have incredible anesthesia providers and all feel the most comfortable with the airway protected and general anesthesia as the technique for managing the operation.” -Dr. Jay Calvert M.D. http://JayCalvertMD.com Potential plastic surgery patients should always talk to their doctors before deciding on the type of anesthesia to use to prevent any complications during surgery. The patient’s past medical history, age, weight, family history and medical health all come into consideration when deciding the perfect anesthesia for the procedure. It is highly important to be truthful and honest to your doctor regarding past history as well as drug, alcohol or smoking habits as these can all play an important factor in your ability to receive most anesthesia methods.
