I had rhinoplasty 25 years ago and was never really happy with the result. I would like to have a second rhinoplasty, but now have deep puffy bags under eyes. If I were to get a lower blepharoplasty and then have rhinoplasty six months to a year later, would the rhinoplasty stretch out the skin below my eyes?
The best secondary rhinoplasty plastic surgeon I know is Dr. Jack Gunter in Dallas, TX. Rhinoplasty after eyelid surgery does not negate the eyelid surgery. There is no relationship.
No--they are unrelated areas. You could even have the procedure performed at the same operation.
Rhinoplasty & Eyelid Surgery – Certainly, one can do eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty at the same time. I usually perform the blepharoplasty first and then do the rhinoplasty at the end of the operative procedure. One procedure does not adversely effect the other.
