I want to have a BBL done as well as a rhino. My question is if both can be done during the same operation?

Yes, both procedures can be done simultaneously or these procedures can easily be staged. I would speak with your plastic surgeon about this possibility if you feel it is necessary.

thank you for your question . I would not perform a rhinoplasty and a BBL at the same time. When performing a rhinoplasty I like the patient sleeping on their back. For a BBL I like them sleeping on their tummy. As an artist I like using the reshaping technique when performing rhinoplasty. Using advanced suturing techniques I can change the nasal Cartilages giving you a thinner more refined natural looking nose. I like to find out from the patient what they don't like about their nose and I write up a detailed operative plan. I incorporate the FINESSEE technique which I invented. Bleeding, bruising, and postoperative pain is minimal when compared to traditional technique and recovery is quicker. I don't routinely pack the nose. It's not uncommon that some patients have no bruising after surgery. I hope you find this information useful.
BBL and rhino
To be honest with you, if your surgeon is comfortable with doing both at the same time, provided that he explains how to deal with post op healing as you mentioned (BBL and rhino have drastically differing positions you want to be in!), then you should be fine. That way, you only have to undergo sedation once as opposed to twice, etc. There are a variety of reasons why this works better for some. That being said, separating them out by 2 (and in my experience, even 4-6 weeks) is often better depending on the level of sedation that is done at his office. I do all my cases under twilight, which allows you to bounce back a little bit faster. I find that doing facial work separate from body work is easier to recover from a patient stand point. Yes it does increase the recovery time (you undergo two recovery periods rather than one), but I find that patients often feel more comfortable this way. Again, this is just my personal experience as in training we would often combine procedures and often it was a little much for patients to heal from. That being said, everyone is a little different. If your doc is comfortable and you feel comfortable with their thoughts, go with what feels best. Either option works and your doc should be able to work with you in those regards. I hope some of this helps. Best.
