Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is one of the specialized plastic surgery procedures done by Robert W. Sheffield. The rhinoplasty Santa Barbara procedure is performed with local anesthesia or by using tumescent anesthesia, where the patient is given a ‘diluted lidocaine’ saline solution and the local anesthesia to minimize the discomfort. Here, the area around the nose is numbed, which makes the patient feel relaxed. It is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure, but Dr. Sheffield creates balance by correcting the nose size, and the bridge or tip of the nose is changed.
In the words of Dr. Robert W. Sheffield, “We make sure to numb the surrounding area near the nose to make the surgical procedure less abrasive and painful. There is no discomfort caused as we use tumescence solution or local anesthesia for the rhinoplasty. Moreover, it is safe, cost-effective, and leads to a quick recovery. Here, we will correct the nostril, the angle between the nose and the upper lip is corrected without making it look like as it’s operated.”
Rhinoplasty is done on patients with some past nose injuries or the ones experiencing breathing problems. The patients who want to change their nose’s aesthetics can also reach out to Robert W. Sheffield’s clinic.
“We believe in producing natural results by using the local anesthesia procedure. There is no discomfort caused since local anesthesia and tumescent anesthesia are not as strong as compared to general anesthesia. Moreover, they do not cause anxiety, and there is no physiological change in the patients too. The great thing is patients can start working without requiring sitting at home for a long time, as in the case of abrasive procedures mainly done using general anesthesia. The local anesthesia procedure for rhinoplasty is minimally invasive to give the natural result to you,” as stated by Dr. Sheffield.
The minimized bruising, and swelling post-surgery are also the reasons for patients to opt for the local anesthesia-based rhinoplasty procedure. Dr. Sheffield has already conducted many innovative reconstructive surgeries, so patients need not worry about the same.
