Question

I want to have a nose job but I have pacemaker(heart block) can surgery be done?

Answer

In principle, rhinoplasty (nose job surgery) does not require electrocautery, which is the main risk of interference with function of the pacemaker.

Advice from your treating cardiologist would also be necessary before setting out to do the surgery.
