How far apart can cosmetic procedures be from each other?
6 months ago
For example if I get a rhinoplasty done, can I do a breast lift with implants 3 months later or do I have to wait for 6 months?

It is certainly acceptable to undergo 2 cosmetic surgeries 3 months apart, as long as you're in excellent health and have no complications from anesthesia.
I will answer your question by recommending that you do both procedures during the same operation. No need to wait.
How about doing them all together? I commonly perform these procedures during the same operative setting. If you are going to stage them then you probably want to wait 3 months.
I would think it would be fine to have breast lift surgery 3 months after a rhinoplasty. I would confirm this with your own surgeon (or surgeons) since they may have a particular preference as to timing of these procedures.
