Can a Facelift Procedure Be Combined with Rhinoplasty?

Featured Image

Many people wonder if they can combine a facelift with rhinoplasty surgery, also known as a nose job. Double-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eugene Alford explains that the answer is often yes, and it can provide patients with dramatic and transformative results.

Call Alford Facial Plastic Surgery to book a consultation for cosmetic surgery and learn about these advanced options. Our Houston, TX team is happy to discuss the benefits and risks of combining procedures for facial rejuvenation.

How does a facelift work?

Age and environmental factors can cause our skin to sag and lose elasticity. You may see deep wrinkles and lines, loose skin, and jowls forming on your face and neck. Facelift surgery addresses these problems by removing excess skin and tightening the underlying tissues. This results in a youthful and refreshed look.

Different facelift techniques are available depending on the specific areas involved. For example, Dr. Gene can perform a traditional facelift for overall facial rejuvenation, or a mini facelift for those with less severe signs of aging. We can also remove small pockets of fat to further enhance your outcomes.

What about rhinoplasty surgery?

Rhinoplasty focuses on reshaping the nose to create a balanced and aesthetically pleasing silhouette. The procedure involves manipulating the bone, cartilage, and skin to achieve a better shape and size. Surgery can also be done for functional reasons, such as correcting a deviated septum or improving breathing.

Ideal candidates for rhinoplasty have a fully developed nose but have problems such as a hump or bump in the bridge, wide nostrils, or a droopy tip. Dr. Gene can perform open rhinoplasty (with an external incision) or closed rhinoplasty (with incisions inside the nose), depending on your needs. Both methods are effective and produce natural-looking results.

Combining a facelift and rhinoplasty

At Alford Facial Plastic Surgery, we often see patients who are interested in both facelift and rhinoplasty procedures. While each cosmetic surgery can be performed separately, combining them can provide a host of benefits, including:

  • Cohesive results: By addressing the face and nose at the same time, patients can achieve harmonious and cohesive results in Houston, TX. Dr. Gene knows how to create natural-looking outcomes that do not seem overdone or artificial.
  • Cost savings: Combining facial rejuvenation procedures means you only need to pay for anesthesia, facility fees, and other associated costs once. When performed separately, these expenses can add up quickly.
  • Less downtime: Instead of recovering from two separate surgeries at different times, combining facelift and rhinoplasty means you only have to go through one recovery period. You can save time and return to your daily activities sooner.
  • However, patients should understand that combining surgeries also comes with risks that should be considered. Our team at Alford Facial Plastic Surgery will discuss potential outcomes to ensure that your goals are met safely and effectively.
