What happens when you have a nose job?

ANSWER

It's usually done as an outpatient procedure. You'll get general or local anesthesia. With general anesthesia, you'll sleep through the operation. With local anesthesia, you will be sedated and your nose will be numbed so you are relaxed and unable to feel the pain.

The surgeon makes cuts within the nostrils. In more difficult cases, they may also make cuts across the base of the nose. The surgeon then reshapes the inner bone and cartilage to produce a more pleasing appearance.
