Dr. Anil Shah, a renowned plastic surgeon specializing in rhinoplasty, has made significant strides in improving the patient experience with his development of the first ever “nerve block” for rhinoplasty. This innovative technique blocks pain in the majority of patients undergoing rhinoplasty, allowing them to avoid the use of strong pain medications.
A recent study published in Facial Plastic Surgery showed that patients who received the nerve block had less pain and nausea and were able to return home faster after surgery. The study, conducted by Dr. Shah and his team, demonstrated that the use of an adjunctive perioperative nerve block in rhinoplasty can significantly improve the patient’s postoperative experience.
This new approach to rhinoplasty has the potential to revolutionize the field, making it possible for many patients to undergo rhinoplasty with minimal discomfort and reduced downtime. Dr. Shah’s innovative technique has already been well received by patients, and he is now offering the pain-free rhinoplasty option to eligible candidates at his practice.
“I am thrilled to be able to offer this breakthrough to my patients,” said Dr. Shah. “I believe that this new approach to rhinoplasty will make it easier for more people to improve their appearance and feel more confident in their own skin.”
The study, “The Use of Adjunctive Perioperative Nerve Blocks in Rhinoplasty in the Immediate Postoperative Period,” can be found in the September 14, 2022 issue of Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine with PMID 36106969.
