What are the problems that could occur if I'm on Accutane during a rhinoplasty revision?
Why do patients need to stop using Accutane 6-12 months before a rhinoplasty or rhinoplasty revision?

Accutane and surgery
Accutane interferes with wound healing. It slows down the healing process, thus prolonging the inflammatory phase. Poor wound healing in any surgery can cause a poor surgical result.
