Loss of Fat in Face Post Rhinoplasty


In over 35 years I have never seen a patient lose fat in their face because they had a rhinoplasty. I wish it was that easy to refine a patient's face.

Lose fat in the face after rhinoplasty?


I have never heard of anyone losing fat in their face after a rhinoplasty.  Certianly if you lose weight after a rhinoplasty, the face may get thinner.
