Can I Have Other Cosmetic Procedures at the Same Time as Rhinoplasty?

May 26th, 2014

Rhinoplasty can be combined safely with other procedures, however there are no generalizations and each patient’s desired outcome must be weighed with the risk and benefits of combined facial procedures as well as the cost. Rhinoplasty is an artistic balancing of the nose with the remainder of the facial structures. Most commonly rhinoplasty is combined with chin augmentation to balance a patient’s profile. Patients need to remember that combined procedures increase the amount of time in the operating room as well as the time under anesthesia. An overnight stay in an accredited facility may be required for procedures lasting longer than 6 hours. While this may increase cost, it certainly lessens the postoperative burden of an individuals convalescence and patients find the care afforded by their personal nurse very comforting.
