Hi rooney707- Assuming the nasal skin is normal after the splint is removed, one could consider a chemical peel 1-2 weeks after a rhinoplasty. This will depend on the srength of the chemical peel. There are different levels of chemicals - light, medium,deep. You should check with your surgeon and get a recommendation for your particular case. Sincerely, Tom Kaniff
One can have a rhinoplasty and a chemical peel simultaneously as long as you don’t do a chemical peel on the nose itself. If you’re doing it separately I would wait at least a month. Recovery from a real full facial chemical peel is usually about 7-10 days. The recovery from a chemical peel has more discomfort than a rhinoplasty which has minimal to no discomfort.
