Is is okay to repair a fractured nose during pregnancy?

by Bellevue | Seattle’s Dr. Philip Young | Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery:

Generally, fixing a nose is a cosmetic undertaking and is not suggested during pregnancy. Especially if it is done under general anesthesia. General anesthesia is not recommended during pregnancy unless for almost life threatening situations let alone cosmetic purposes.  I would highly recommend postponing fixing your fractured nose until after pregnancy and breast feeding.  Another alternative is to do it under local anesthesia but this is rather a difficult option as it is hard to completely make the nose numb at times.
