Rhinoplasty and Skin Resurfacing

I would treat your skin before doing a rhinoplasty to change nasal structures and straighten your broken nose. This can be done while you're saving money for the surgery. I recently did a rhinopasty on a lady with skin like yours who was treated by our esthetician with selected skin care products, applied daily by the patient, and a couple procedures in the office. On some occasions more aggressive physician administered peels are necessary. This patient's skin improved dramatically before surgery and her post-op course was expedited. The rhinoplasty surgery will improve nasal size and shape but does nothing to change the overlying envelope of skin.
