I have a bit of a dilemma. I am planning on Rhinoplasty and breast augmentation. Any suggestions?

This is as simple as having an open conversation with each surgeon. Depending on their individual personalities, this may be a problem, but likely won't be. I think more and more plastic surgeons are realizing patients want "experts" based upon procedure and although many surgeons perform both breast augmentation and rhinoplasty surgery, most are not experts at both. You need to feel comfortable with the surgeon performing each procedure or you shouldn't be having it done. good luck
Clear, honest communication with both plastic surgeons is the best way to proceed.
The decision to get plastic surgery is not made lightly. These elective procedures are about enhancing your aesthetic appearance, and you’re doing the right thing by choosing the plastic surgeon who you feel is best-suited to each procedure. Contact the plastic surgeon who you initially scheduled both the rhinoplasty and breast augmentation with, apologize for the change of plans, and ask if he’d be open to working alongside another plastic surgeon. It’s not uncommon to have several plastic surgeries performed simultaneously by different specialists. It’s likely that your plastic surgeon will understand, but both surgeons will need to coordinate their schedules.
This will insult and offend the surgeon you are already scheduled with

Combination Rhinoplasty and Breast Augmentation
Thank you for the inquiry.
Combining a breast augmentation with a rhinoplasty is a more common request than most think. I have performed this combination a number times in my practice. Doing the surgery in combination allows the patient to have one down time and in our practice can decrease your overall price. These are definitely perks to the patient. Typically, this combination does not pose a risk from anesthesia time. The biggest variable, from my standpoint, is the rhinoplasty. This should be clarified by your surgeon.
More importantly, you need to be completely comfortable with your decision on the surgery and your surgeon. I encourage you to discuss you preference with the surgeons. They should understand that the ultimate decision is up to you. I also encourage you to be sure that the surgeons you end up using are board certified plastic surgeons.
Best of luck,
Being open and honest with your surgeons is important. Choosing a surgeon is personal and as with the first surgeon you told, the other surgeon should be open to the concept as well. Schedules will need to be coordinated with both, so the sooner you tell them both, the better.
