Is it safe to have Rhinoplasty following Botox injections?


I am scheduled to have reconstructive rhinoplasty, but have received Botox injections covering the usual areas including my nose to treat "bunny lines."  Is it safe or advisable to have surgery on my nose following the Botox?


The administration of the Botox should not affect your Rhinoplasty procedure.

Rhinoplasty After Botox Injections- It’s safe to have Rhinoplasty surgery after Botox injections to the nose. Botox will dissipate in 3-4 months. The Botox injections will not effect the result of the Rhinoplasty.    


Prior Botox injections should not interfere with having a rhinoplasty.
