I had a seizure as an infant. Could rhinoplasty & anesthesia put me at risk for another one?

I'm 21 and the only surgery I've had was tooth extraction under general anesthesia. That went very well and there were no complications. I had a seizure once as an infant due to fever. What are my chances of suffering a seizure following surgery and anesthesia?

General anesthesia usually represses the chance of seizures. You must be evaluated by your physician to make sure the surgery is safe but in general people with the seizure history can have general anesthesia.
