How long will I be under during my nose job?

For the record, "nose job" is a bit non-specific and could range from a simple septoplasty (generally about 30-60 minutes of anesthesia time, depending on level of deformity) to a simple rhinoplasty (generally about 60-120 minutes of anesthesia time, depending on level of deformity), to a septorhinoplasty (two procedures in one, generally about 90-180 minutes of anesthesia time, depending on level of deformity) to a more radical nasal procedure (generally performed for malignancies of nasal/sinus structures) which can require many hours of operating time. General anesthesia is commonly done for these procedures, though some surgeons prefer "sedation + local anesthetics with vasoconstrictors" over general anesthesia for more superficial procedures. Even with general anesthesia, most surgeons will use local anesthetics with vasoconstrictors to reduce intraoperative blood loss and increase postoperative patient comfort. 
Hope that helps.
