Topicals after a rhinoplasty
Thank you for the question. Although Retin-A and Differin can certainly be used after a rhinoplasty, most surgeons recommend waiting from one week to a full month after the procedure. It would always be best to visit your board-certified plastic surgeon to evaluate your needs and obtain a reliable medical advice. Best of luck! Dr. Michael Omidi.
Are topical which thicken skin ok to use after Rhinoplasty
the degree of skin thickening from agents such as Retin-A are very very small, enough only for fine lines to improve. There will not be a visible thickening of the skin that will alter its appearance form before starting the cream
Topical Creams to Thicken skin after Rhinoplasty
Dear skincare0, Skin is not typically thinned during a rhinoplasty procedure. The underlying structures are refined to make definition but the skin is not thinned. Retin-A typically thins the skin and does not thicken it. I would speak with your surgeon to discuss your current questions or concerns. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
