Anesthesia and heavy drinking
Hi, I will most likely be undergoing an open-nose rhinoplasty requiring general anesthesia in the near future. I am curious as to whether or not my drinking habits will affect the procedure (mainly the anethesia part). For the past    2-3 years I have been getting drunk about 2-3 nights a week. Drunk meaning around 9-12 drinks consumed within 3 hours and I weigh around 165lbs. I'm currently 21 years old(male),  and besides the drinking, I eat healthy and lift weights at a gym about 3-4x a week.
My question is whether or not this drinking has damaged my liver enough to require more or less anethesia and whether or not I should let my doctor know prior to the surgery.
I also plan on avoiding alcohol for about 2 weeks before the surgery.
