I had a rhinoplasty and my dermatologist recommended I take accutane for acne. I was just wondering if I should wait a while because I remember my plastic surgeon saying it will take about a year for my nose swelling to go down. It has been about 6 months.
How Long After Rhinoplasty Can I Take Accutane?

Acutane after rhinoplasty
Acutane will impact wound healing and must be stopped at least six months prior to rhinoplasty. Following rhinoplasty, I would recommend waiting at least two months before starting or restarting acutane. Discuss with your surgeon.
