Before the procedure The doctor will take a complete medical history of the patient and would ask the patient about all the conditions, allergies, any bleeding disorders, or surgeries if the patient had undergone in the past.
Physical examination – A complete physical examination is done by the doctor, especially focusing on the in and out of the nose, to concentrate on the area to be fixed.
The patient is also asked to go through some blood tests.
During the procedure, the local anaesthesia is given to the patient and is localised only to the patient’s nose. In some cases, the surgeon might feel the need for administering general anaesthesia, which is administered through an IV line (intravenously) or by inhaling. In this procedure, the patient’s complete body becomes numb and goes into a temporary state of unconsciousness, at least for a few hours.
The Rhinoplasty procedure can be performed inside the nose of the individual or by making a small incision at the base of the nose, or between the nostrils. This procedure involves the readjustment of the cartilage or bone under the skin of the nose.
