Can nose reshaping and eyelid surgery both be done during one procedure?

Q:

I was hit in my nose by accident by another player during sports activity while in high school.  As the years have gone by, my nose has been turning and I cannot breath through it when sleeping. I need to fix the deviated septum and also reduce the size of my nose.  I would like to have eyelid surgery at the same time.  Can both surgeries be done by a reputable surgeon in one procedure?   I would appreciate it if you could give an approximate cost of what this would be.

A:

Yes, you can certainly have a SeptoRhinoplasty and peri-occular surgery at the same time. These types of procedures are done daily around the world. Costs vary based upon the extent of the surgical procedure required to correct your issues/deformitiies. Consider a consult with a member of the ASAPS in your area. They are experts in Facial Plastic Surgery.

A:

Dear Mil,

Nose reshaping with septal deviation corrections and eyelid surgery can be done at the same time. It is actually a rather common practice. During the procedure, I would usually perform first the eyelid surgery and then the nose reshaping and septoplasty, as there might be some swelling on the eyelid area after rhinoplasty.

Costs would depend on several factors that have to be addressed on your initial consultation, so I would recommend you look for a reputable plastic surgeon.

Good luck!
