Local or general Anesthesia for Rhinoplasty and blepharoplasty? Which option should I opt for ?

Each surgeon will have his/her preference in terms of general anesthesia.  For me personally, I find general anesthesia to be the most comfortable and safe form of anesthesia for my patients during rhinoplasty.  The nose is a part of the airway, and for this reason during nasal surgery blood can potentially enter the airway.  General anesthesia provides an excellent way to protect the airway and prevent issues from blood entering the airway.
