How long do I need to wait if I had the revision rhinoplasty before I can have any surgery done on my body, particularly a mommy makeover, brazilian butt lift, and arm lift. I need to have extensive surgery done to fix what massive weight gain and loss has done to my body. But I also have trouble breathing and have a crooked, unsightly nose. Which should I get fixed first and how long to wait in between per surgery ?
Revision Rhinoplasty or Mommy Makeover and Other Body Procedures First?

Revision Rhinoplasty and Body Sculpting Procedures
Your choice of procedure order really depends on which areas you wish to address first. The healing time for a revision rhinoplasty is typically 2 to 4 weeks, but it is possible to have body sculpting surgery as soon as 1 week later.

The best plan of attack is to present your surgeon with a priority list of the things you would like to do. Each surgeon has his/her specific skill sets that dictate how many procedures can be safely combined. A good plan will combine several procedures together for efficiency. Combining procedures is safe and effective; be sure to walk around a lot afterwards to avoid blood clots.
Rhinoplasty or body work?
It really is a personal choice to determine whether a rhinoplasty should be performed or body work. Do what bothers you most.

I do not think the timing in between is as important as the sequence of the procedures. I would recommend the body rejuvenation procedures prior to the revision rhinoplasty. The body procedures may require positioning you face-down during surgery. This could cause significant problems if a revision rhinoplasty had been recently performed (from prolonged pressure on the nose). Best wishes!
